The entertainment industry currently has a critical shortfall of qualified entertainment riggers in the UK.
People who wish to enter the entertainment rigging industry are faced with steep starting costs and limited learning opportunities.
UK Rigging have been working on addressing this problem for some time now, and have created a scheme which should allow us to support and guide new freelancers into the industry.
Originally nicknamed ‘Project X’, this iteration known as ‘Project X.02,’ will support 6 new freelancers at a time, and provide them with the skills, training and support they need to reach their full potential as great NRC riggers.
The September 2022 cohort has been selected; follow us on social media to find out how they get on.
We will be interviewing for the next cohort, X.03, in early 2023. If you wish to be notified when we are next interviewing, please fill out the online application form: Online Application Form. (Your application should take around 10 minutes to complete)
