Event Management Positions

Last updated October 2nd, 2012
A vibrant industry boasting annual turnovers of over £200m; event management positions are some of the most sought after in the graduate job market, with event management jobs in London particularly under the spotlight. In spite of an economic recession, the UK’s culture for festivals, conferences and opportunities for networking or celebration, continue to grow stronger. Just looking back that the past few years, we have seen the Olympic Games, the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and the glorious wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton. From these singular celebratory – and often elaborate – events, bore thousands of nationwide street parties, park concerts and corporate team building events. It is often in the midst of hard social and economic times that we are reminded that the best way to pull through, is often to come together and share our ideas, networks and experiences. The events industry provides the environments for these opportunities to occur, but it is down to the conference and event management staff to create the right conditions for success. Whether that’s ensuring a smooth wedding so that the lucky couple and the guests can focus on enjoying the wedding, or coming up with the right corporate event ideas to suit your client, great event managers are pivotal to great experiences. However, getting into that world of conference and event management, requires confidence in your social and corporate event ideas and trust that you can deliver. That first step into the event management workplace can be tough, especially if you are setting out without any experience. Whilst you may have that confidence and trust in your own abilities, having a recommendation or seal of approval fighting in your corner will help you gain one of the lucrative event jobs in London. Producer, Stage Manager, experiential designer and more; these positions require an understanding of the event management industry that comes from on the job training and now, more so than ever, degree level qualification. Whilst the Games could not have existed without the enthusiasm of its core body of volunteers from a wide variety of backgrounds, those thousands of recruits required teams of experienced managers who could understand their needs, as well as the needs of the general public, to ensure that everyone involved in the Olympics knew what they were doing – and enjoyed doing it. That’s the crux of it really; great event managers build experiences that their clients and staff enjoy – and that’s not just referring to party planning companies!
