CREW MANCHESTER is free to join and free to use. There is also a paid Membership upgrade option that offers more features for Crew and facilities.
There are two ways in which to find and hire crew:
1/ You can search the website and view pages of individuals and contact them directly via the information they have provided.
2/ Simply email email@example.com and we can post jobs directly to Crew Members and/or onto the Facebook closed groups.
The only stipulation is that it is a site for fully paid jobs.
If Crew are contacted and offered below minimum wage jobs they should contact us immediately with the individuals / company’s details. If this happens, and this rule is broken, the company offering the work will be named and shamed for all members to see and to be warned about.

You will not only get your own website page for self promotion, you will now be more visible to potential employers coming to the area looking for professional local Crew.
