Recommended Posts

Salary circa £35,000 plus car



Black Light is a leading provider of light, stage, sound and AV solutions. We come from a theatrical background and therefore have a passion for finding innovative and creative solutions to the most technical of challenges. Our track record speaks for itself: We have been supplying products and services to schools, theatres, exhibitions, conferences, trade shows, heritage centres and private clients for over 35 years.


In 2016 Black Light became an Employee Owned Company where 80% of the Shares are held in a Trust for all Members of Staff, that have passed their qualifying period. This was done to help ensure the success of the Company is shared with the people that drive that success and the company has a strong secure future. Throughout the UK there are around 400 Employee Owned Companies, and the number continues to grow.
