What we are looking for

To apply for this opportunity you must be a current undergraduate, and be able to undertake a year in industry placement from July 2024- August 2025. We accept applications from all degree backgrounds but ideally, you’ll be studying for an Events Management degree, or have some experience in organising events. Regardless, a clear passion for events management is essential.

Whilst we have adopted a hybrid way of working, this role is based in Nottingham and requires the successful applicant to work in the office 1-2 days weekly. Due to the nature of the role, you’ll also need to be happy to travel to events in other locations across the UK (travel to events expensed), which will require flexibility in working hours.

Strong communication skills, both written and verbal are essential, as well as basic project management skills. Events management is an exciting and fast-paced career path, so being highly organised, detail oriented, have good numeracy skills, with strong time management skills and the ability to multitask different priorities is important. You’ll enjoy problem solving and collaborating with multiple stakeholders.
