💡 Employee Spotlight – Part 5, Moxie, Fun, Passionate. 💡
For the fourth edition of Employee Spotlight we focus on Gillian Rendulic, one of our Crew Coordinators for Neg Earth Lights.
Gillian began her journey at Neg 3 years ago after being convinced by a friend known to the team to apply for a Crew Coordinator role. We conducted a short interview with Gillian to find out more.
What is your role at Neg Earth Lights?
[Gillian] Crew Coordinator, I sort out all things crew from assigning technicians to tours, to finding new talent and making sure they have all the paperwork necessary.
What did you do for a job before working at Neg Earth?
[Gillian] I worked at a Live Music Agency as an agent assistant.
How did you first learn about Neg Earth?
[Gillian] I was looking for a role on the touring side of the industry and I saw Neg was recruiting. I didn’t know much about this side of the industry. A friend of mine worked with Neg and she convinced me to apply. The role was a perfect fit.
What is your favourite part about working for Neg Earth?
[Gillian] Everyday can bring new challenges and its all about problem solving. I love music, especially live music. Its so exciting being a small part of the most exciting shows in the world and working with like-minded people. We do some amazing stuff.
What 3 words best describe Neg Earth?
[Gillian] Moxie, Fun and Passionate.
How has Neg Earth helped you in your career development?
[Gillian] Neg has helped in all sorts of ways; we are always encouraged to learn and evolve. They’ve provided support through a variety of training, from courses which have helped me to apply my initiative and develop my problem solving, to the abundance of knowledge throughout the team (which they are always willing to share) about live events and what it takes to deliver them.
If you could switch your job with anyone else at Neg Earth, whose job would you want?
[Gillian] Anyone in the warehouse! They make things happen and have the technical skills I don’t possess.
What has been your favourite project at Neg Earth Lights?
[Gillian] That’s not hard for me. Rammstein, the stage and crew are mind blowing. It was even more incredible to see the show, it’s very special to me. The Rolling Stones started my love for music, so working on their productions is also a highlight and WWE Crown Jewel because of the sheer planning that goes into that event to make it happen.
If you had to eat one meal, every day for the rest of your life, what would it be?
[Gillian] Anything pasta related, or my mom’s apple pie – it’s amazing.
Would you rather be a tiny elephant or a giant hamster and why?
[Jasmine] Definitely a tiny elephant. Maybe it’s because I am from South Africa, they are just incredible animals.
Which cartoon character would you most like to switch lives with?
[Gillian] Batman from the original Batman series, or Naruto.
