Events manager career & jobs guide

With activities running across the UK, events manager positions involve work on all the various aspects of planning, marketing and running an event. This can include:

  • Exhibitions
  • Conferences
  • Promotions
  • Product launches
  • Parties
  • Weddings

While in a larger organisation the roles will be divided between different departments, in a small company events managers will be involved in all areas, from booking the venue to promoting the event, from dealing with the client to actually attending on the day.

This is an industry that has seen significant growth in the last ten years. For a prospective employee this means that there are good opportunities for events managers with the right training. Employment is possible in a range of organizations, from large operations, where all aspects of putting on an event are handled in-house, through to self-employment where you specialize in a particular type of event and work on a contract basis.

The types of companies where you might find work include:
  • Events management consultancies
  • Large commercial organisations
  • Charities
  • Hotels
  • Conference and exhibition centres
  • Events venues
  • Public attractions
  • Universities
  • Local authorities
