The future of Watford's biggest club venue looks to be secure after a position for a new full-time role was advertised.

The night-time industry has been one of the hardest hit over the pandemic with venues like nightclubs staying closed for more than a year.

The owners of Pryzm in Watford warned last summer that clubs and late night venues could close permanently without financial support - and Pryzm's owners - the Deltic Group - ended up falling into administration.

Fortunately, in December, Scandinavian nightclub operator Rekom stepped in to save 42 Deltic venues, securing more than 1,000 jobs.

And now there looks to be further good news for the future of Pryzm in Watford after a couple of new jobs were advertised.

The club is looking for a full-time promotions manager, as well as a VIP manager.

A job opportunity has also arisen for a venue manager at Steinbeck and Shaw, which is next door to Pryzm in The Parade.

Jason Ash, venue operator and event management at Rekom UK, wrote on LinkedIn: "It's been over a year since I was last able to hire someone and I cannot emphasise enough how thrilled I am to finally post for not just one but three new roles.

  • Promotions Manager (Pryzm Watford)
  • VIP Manager (Pryzm Watford)
  • Venue Manager (Steinbeck & Shaw Watford)

"A role is available to join our Watford team as Promotions Manager. This is a full time position and the ideal candidate should have experience in the promotions and marketing of a venue and can demonstrate strong social media skills, an outgoing personality and dynamic leadership style in driving the team. The working week is fluid and includes both day and evening hours. Salary dependant on experience and training! Apply to:"

Under the current government roadmap, venues like clubs are scheduled to open from June 21, although it remains to be seen what kind of restrictions will be in place - and how well venues recover from being closed for so long.

On Sunday, 5,000 people packed into Sefton Park in Liverpool for a live music festival as part of the Events Research Programme.

Meanwhile, around 6,000 revellers partied over two nights at Circus in Liverpool as part of another government pilot project.

Those attending Sefton Park and Circus all had to produce negative coronavirus tests and did not have to wear face coverings or social distance.

The government hopes test events like those in Liverpool will pave the way for festivals and venues across the country to reopen for mass gatherings again.
