An events manager role is often fast-paced, dynamic and varied, but can be very demanding. As the go-to person and first point of contact for any event, an events manager will often find themselves in high-pressure situations and will be familiar with uncompromising deadlines.
From planning to research and dealing with third parties, an events manager must be across every element of an event. They can be supported by a team, an events assistant or work independently, but will usually sit within the marketing team and share a responsibility in representing the business’s brand to clients.
Organised and with an eye for detail, an events manager must possess exceptional problem-solving skills, anticipating and adapting to situations as they rise and creatively approaching solutions.
A strong events manager is worth their weight in gold. Their skillset is incredibly unique because they’ll be used to working at an incredibly fast pace and managing competing deadlines – all the while staying on top of their to-do list and keeping calm under pressure.
