The events industry is an exciting, dynamic sector to work in and, by coming on board with Event Academy, you can qualify as a fully-fledged event manager in as little as three months! With qualifications in hand, your job search can begin.

There are numerous event management positions appearing regularly on job boards and some can be found under jobs in marketing. Jobs range from event managers for party planning companies, production or account managers, conference or exhibition managers, or event organisers for blue-chip corporates.

Competition is fierce for top positions in event management and, indeed, any jobs in the sector. To improve your chances of establishing a successful career we have developed a strong network of industry partners who know and value the high level to which our graduates work. From the day you pass your diploma or postgraduate diploma, you will be able to hit the ground running, ready to produce a memorable and successful event. Our reputation goes a long way towards landing you that first job.

Choosing the right events training programme is one of the most important decisions you will make. Our postgraduate event course delivers the perfect foundation upon which to base a successful and fulfilling career in event management.

Our partners choose to work with Event Academy because of the positive and flexible ‘can do’ attitude we encourage in all our students. This attitude, alongside the skills and tools we provide, can make the difference between an event  run like clockwork, delivered on time an within budget, or turning into  a stressful and costly mistake for your employer, and an experience for you that you may wish to forget!

Graduates who have completed their post graduate event course in event management training have gone on to develop their careers in event management in many different directions, whether it’s organising fundraising charity Gala dinners, business conferences for 1000+ delegates, corporate days, product launches, sporting events, lavish weddingsfestivals or trade fairs.

Event management is a rewarding career choice and one which will present fantastic opportunities for you to build a valuable network of contacts.

Successful careers for event management graduates are reliant on people skills so you need to be amiable, approachable and not surprisingly you need to be highly sociable! All these ‘soft-skills’ will help you develop your network of contacts which will help ensure you enjoy a successful career in event management.

Building a portfolio of events will strengthen your CV and could form the building blocks to establish your own event management company. Many of the skills and attributes required to train as an event manager are similar to many entrepreneurs, not least of which is the ability to be a self-starter. You need to be self-motivated, innovative and task-driven.

Many students who have graduated from Event Academy have found their ideal position in the Events World. Read this recent report about our student; Selina Patel
