New Start

In our continuing drive to develop and invest in our crew, Rock City is happy to announce the full time addition of eight new members of staff to join our growing team.

Rock City has continually strived over the years to employ as many of our crew as possible on salaries or fixed term contracts, giving them security, a regular wage with benefits and peace of mind. 2018 sees 38 such staff on our books with a target of 50 by 2020.

Adam Hall – AKA Taffy has been with the crew since 2009, an accomplished member of the Cardiff Crew who we have eventually persuaded to join us full time.

Taffy will further strengthen our outdoor events team and crew chief several festivals this summer for us.
