Anna Valley and Matrix UK Solutions have announced the launch of a new graduate trainee scheme.
This joint offering is an opportunity for some of the next generation of project managers, engineers and technicians to gain valuable hands-on experience, training and knowledge from two firmly established suppliers to the live event industry.
The paid positions on offer as part of the scheme will be tailored to individual candidates, and include lengthy and advanced training options at both Anna Valley and Matrix.
The roles will include, but not be limited to, hands-on training and mentorship in pre-production and project management, equipment and warehouse operations and on-site delivery.
The two-year placement also offers additional optional modules for candidates that would like to increase the length of their training.
Ideal candidates for the graduate trainee scheme will have either completed a course related to the study of audio-visual, sound or video technology, or be due to finish these studies by the summer of 2019.
Entry is open immediately, interviews will commence in the spring and candidate placements will start in the summer of 2019.
Anna Valley technical director Peter Jones commented: “The best way to learn about AV technology is by working on real jobs, but it can be difficult for graduates to get an opportunity to do so, particularly on live event projects where you can’t afford to make mistakes.
“The Anna Valley and Matrix Graduate Trainee Scheme will offer a safe space for graduates to get the hands-on experience they need, under the guidance and supervision of some of the industry’s most experienced experts. We’re excited to play a part in developing the next generation of AV talent.”
