  • Experienced Event Manager

    Ref: EM500001

    As an event manager you'll have responsibility for putting on a range of events. You'll manage the whole process from the planning stage, right through to running the actual day itself and the post-event evaluation. The role is very hands-on and often involves working as part of a team.

    Types of event
      You'll typically work on the following kinds of event:

      + Corporate Event & Event Management

      + Entertainment & Event Production

      + Theme Events

      + Conference Planning

      + Awards Ceremonies & Gala Diners

      + Product Launches & Brand Events

    You might specialise in a particular type of event or work on a range of different events.

      As an event manager, you'll need to:

      + liaise with clients to find out their exact event requirements;

      + produce detailed proposals for events (for example, timelines, venues, suppliers, legal obligations, staffing and budgets);

      + research venues, suppliers and contractors, and then negotiate prices and hire;

      + manage and coordinate suppliers and all event logistics (for example, venue, catering, travel);

      + liaise with sales and marketing teams to publicise and promote the event;

      + manage all pre-event planning, e.g. organising guest speakers and delegate packs;

      + coordinate suppliers, handle client queries and troubleshoot on the day of the event to ensure that all runs smoothly and to budget;

      + manage a team of staff, giving full briefings;

      + organise facilities for car parking, traffic control, security, first aid, hospitality and the media;

      + make sure that insurance, legal, health and safety obligations are followed;

      + oversee the dismantling and removal of the event and clear the venue efficiently;

      + produce post-event evaluation to inform future events;

      + research opportunities for new clients and events.

    Working hours

    You'll generally work normal office hours in the lead up to an event. However, you may need to work extra hours, including evenings and weekends, nearer the time of the event. Part-time work is possible.

    What to expect

    Although the work is largely office based, you'll need to travel to visit clients, partners, sponsors, venues and other suppliers. You may need to work outside to plan and deliver the event, e.g. an outdoors concert or festival.

    Jobs may require travelling overseas depending on kind of event.

    Self-employment and freelance work are possible once you've got experience and an established network of contacts.


    A Degree or HND in event management, hotel or catering management, leisure and tourism, marketing or business may be useful.

      You will need to have:

      + organisational skills and attention to detail;

      + communication and interpersonal skills;

      + negotiation skills when looking for the best price from venues, suppliers and contractors;

      + time-management skills and the ability to work under pressure to ensure the efficient running of an event;

      + project management experience;

      + problem-solving skills and diplomacy;

      + sales an marketing skills to promote the event and attract sponsorship;

      + the ability to manage budgets as you'll be responsible for event budgets;

      + a flexible, target-driven, proactive approach;

      + administrative and IT skills;

      + self-motivation and enthusiasm.

      + Fluent in English & French
