I want to work in … events management

You need excellent planning, communication and multi-tasking skills to work in events management.  You need to be able to think on your feet, troubleshoot problems as they arise and make decisions quickly.  You need good attention to detail,  be prepared to muck in when the going gets tough, dealing with any issues that arise ‘on the day’ and be willing to help with any tasks if there’s an unexpected shortfall of hands to the wheel. 

Where do I find out more about what this role involves?

Look at Explore types of jobs on the Prospects website for profiles and case studies of being a Conference centre manager and an Event organiser.

Have a look at these websites: Association for Conferences and Events, Association of Event Organisers and Society of Event Organisers.

There are several specialist recruitment agencies for the events management sector including Event Job Search which is an online jobsboard, ESP Recruitment and Spectrum Recruitment.

Also have a look at Access All Areas and Event, two magazines for the events industry.
