Increasing work opportunities for members first is a priority for IATSE Local 891. The launch of a new feature of our website called “Job Board” does just that.

Job Board is a one-stop-shop for current opportunities with productions across all departments - for Members only. By logging in to Job Board, you will have access to postings from productions looking for Local 891 members and can easily email them your resume.

Job Board not only allows members to keep track of available jobs in their department, it allows members to see jobs they may be qualified for in other departments. This prioritizes work opportunities for members and will lead to a more skilled and diversified workforce.

The Job Board will be updated regularly, as Productions advise us of their hiring needs. Check back often, to make sure you’re up to date with the current opportunities.

Log in to Job Board here. For instructions on how to use the Job Board, view the Job Board Manual.
