SSR Manchester - Handball Crew hand pick live sound students
Handball Crew hand pick live sound students
SSR was recently approached by crewing company Handball Crew in their search for professional audio technicians and general event crew for their upcoming summer events.

A fine example of SSR’s industry connections and strong reputation, Handball’s MD Alex Knight contacted SSR Live Sound tutor Jay Beard requesting a selection of successful students to join their crew for upcoming festivals, corporate events and concerts.

This initial contact resulted in Handball Crew holding a series of interviews with eager SSR students which left Alex suitably impressed with the talent on offer.

Initially looking to recruit 4 students, Handball were “spoilt for choice” during the interviews and will be trialling all applicants on industry placements, which could lead to regular work for 8 or more of our Live Sound students.

Live Sound tutor Jay Beard:
“This is an ideal opportunity for my Live Sound graduates to get in on the ground floor of live events at a successful company, which will give them great experience and knowledge. It will also put them in touch with the right kind of professionals to begin making their own contacts and networking; skills which are invaluable in the live events industry.”

SSR would like to thank Alex Knight and Handball Crew for giving our students this opportunity, and we hope to work closely with them again in future.
