What others have said about their Work Experience at Cambridge Junction;

I have really enjoyed my time at the Junction. It has given me a proper experience of what the industry entails and how there are so many jobs that are as important as the performance. It is difficult to choose one of my main highlights as I have had so many but I think the one I remember so vividly was working with the tech team for the band Unknown Mortal Orchestra. I found it mesmerising how in the morning there was no structure and all they had to follow was a piece of paper however, by the evening, the stage was ready and the lighting looked fascinating. Plus I got to meet the band during their sound check, which was very exciting.
Work Experience Placement, June 2016

I would definitely recommend work experience at Cambridge Junction to others as I feel that I have now got a deeper understanding of what putting a performance on really involves. Everyone was so friendly and I felt that I fitted straight in! Working at Cambridge Junction has made me even more eager to pursue working in this type of industry.
