What is an Event Manager?
For every event you have ever been to there was an Event Manager behind it.

Organisational skills and creativity are a must if you are going to succeed in the events industry. If you decide a career in Event Management is for you, then your career will be filled with variety and excitement.
Why is being an Event Manager so great?
Money, money, money
The kind of salary you can expect throughout your career as an Event Manager ranges from the following:
- £17,000 – £21,000 when you first start
- £25,000 – £40,000 for an experienced position
- £50,000+ for a highly-experienced Event Manager
Variety is the spice of life
No two days are the same in the events industry as clients, budgets and event briefs vary from event to event. There are also plenty of opportunities to travel as it’s likely you will be responsible for organising events abroad too!
I did that…
