A day in the life of a Production Manager

INTERVIEW WITH LEAH GLANVILLE

 

Leah Glanville has been FullCircle’s Production Manager for 3 years. She lives in south-east London with her friends and, outside of work, can be found wandering around street markets and the Docklands.

 

My alarm goes off…

At around 7 am. I’m actually a terrible morning person, so rising early gives me enough time to adjust!

 

I’m responsible for…

Running large-scale production projects at FullCircle, including the full build and production of The Pavilion at the Tower of London. I also look after a range of venues across London including Syon Park, Plaisterers Hall and Winchester House to name a few.

 

I got the job…

Because I was working in Dubai and looking to relocate back to London – I love this city. I wanted a fresh and exciting challenge. FullCircle seemed like a great fit, and it was!

 

My typical day is…

Always varied! Talking to clients, building quotes, drawing CAD plans and of course, getting stuck in on-site!

 

My most memorable moment was…

Having to deal with gale force winds whilst attempting to de-rig The Pavilion at the Tower of London last year. The team had to work very strategically while maintaining a safe environment. We were, of course, able to successfully dismantle the venue with no dramas. Phew!

 

The worst part of my job is…

Admin! I always seem to get lost in the world of spreadsheets.

 

The best part of my job is…

Being on-site and playing my part within the team to create unforgettable events!

 

After work…

I’m currently binge watching Grey’s Anatomy on Sky whilst sipping whiskey. Pure escapism!

 

My Plan B: A Costumier

Making elaborate outfits for stage and on screen.
