FAQ Job hunters
First of all, check our job portal to see if there is a suitable position for you. If you see something that fits, click through our short application form. This is the first step in your application.
If you don’t find the right job, please send an unsolicited application by e-mail to email@example.com
Ideally, you are at least 18 years old. You are also welcome to apply from the age of 17. Please keep in mind, however, that we can only offer you limited jobs in this case, as special regulations apply to minors under the Working Hours Act.
- If you have applied for a job, we will contact you personally and arrange a short meeting on the phone or on site, in the city where you have applied. You can ask all your questions during this meeting and then decide if the job is right for you.
- If everything fits from both sides, we ask you for your personal data, so that we can issue the employment contract.
- Once everything is signed and returned to us, we can start.
- In order to coordinate all jobs and projects with you, we ask you to download the app “Zvoove Work”. Through this app we post open jobs and you can apply bindingly if you have time on the day of the project.
We take career changers who have never worked on an event before, but also highly skilled technicians and consummate professionals who have worked on the really big shows. And everything in between!
You’ll need an email address (that you read, too!) and a smartphone, because we coordinate all details via the app Zvoove.

Documents for your employment contract
The eleven-digit tax ID number, which is valid for life, is issued by the Federal Central Tax Office (BZSt) to newborns or to people who are living in Germany for the first time and have registered their residence here. You can find it in your income tax statement or on your wage tax certificate.
If you cannot find your tax ID, you can ask for it at the Federal Central Tax Office.
Your pension insurance number (RVNR) can be found in your social security card, directly under your personal data. You will usually receive the social security card with your insurance number when you start your professional life and take your first job. If necessary, you can ask for your RVNR at the responsible pension fund.
We can find out your RVNR for you.
However, you can also ask your health insurance company yourself.
The twelve-digit RVNR is made up of letters and numbers. What immediately catches your eye is that the digits 3-8 are your birthday and the 9th digit is the first letter of your birth name.
Since 01.01.2023, the sick bills are reported directly by the doctor to the responsible health insurance company, that`s why the sick bill is no longer required. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and inform us about the period of your sick leave, also in case of an extension (so we can plan jobs).
Notice of termination must be given in writing: During the probationary period within 2 weeks, after the probationary period within four weeks to the 15th or last day of the month.
Here you can find our team and the areas they cover.
