Events recruitment agency listing
Working in events within the arts sector can be glamorous and exciting, but it can also be difficult and involve a lot of hard work and tenacity. The type of events candidates will be involved in will depend on the company or organisation they are employed by. Working in the events department of a gallery will involve organising exhibitions and openings, whereas working in events for a charitable arts organisation will be completely different.
As with the arts sector in general, competition in events is stiff, with countless graduates flooding the market every year and wanting to get their foot in the door of what is an exciting and challenging sector. In order to stand out and make searching for employment that much easier, signing up to specialist recruitment agencies is imperative. Employers also use recruitment agencies to search through the vast numbers of candidates available in order to find the best choice for their organisation.
Working in events will require a bachelor's degree, normally in a subject pertaining to the arts as well as a good deal of work experience in the arts sector and in event management more specifically. Salaries hover around the national average, although can be lower for junior roles and often rise to £29-30,000 for staff in management positions.
