Event Manager


If you have high organisation and interpersonal skills and thrive in a fast-paced environment, consider a career as an event manager


· Event managers plan and organise promotional, business and social events. They're responsible for running a range of events, ensuring the target audience is engaged and the message of the event is marketed properly. Events play a huge part in the success of a brand or an organisation.
