TECHNICAL PROJECT MANAGER
A BIT OF CONTEXT

Stagestruck is an independent events and experiential communications agency. 34 years ago, the company began as an AV supplier, man-handling vast numbers of fragile 35mm slides across banks of projectors to create stunning visual displays. This required vision, dedication and craft skills - three things that have stuck with Stagestruck.

Since then, technology (thankfully) has developed. And so has Stagestruck. With over 70 people based between our Hertfordshire base and new central London office, Stagestruck has a blue chip client-list that includes Bloomberg, Samsung, VW Group, Barclays, JP Morgan, M&S, BP, PwC and more. For these clients we create inspiring experiences including conferences, product launches, exhibitions, brand experiences, films, digital content, projection mapping and much more.

Stagestruck is growing; growing in size, growing in remit and growing in ambition. We’re doing some great work already; but we want to do even greater work... We have a bold vision for our future and - as we have done over the last 34 years - we’re evolving to fulfil our ambitions.
