Developing the next generation of event professionals.
During the COVID pandemic, we watched as experienced and talented people were forced to leave our industry, and new events students and grads with tremendous potential struggled to find and create pathways into our industry.
Frustrated, we wanted to do something to support events when the recovery began and, at the same time, help create a stronger and even more diverse generation of professionals with the energy, passion, and self-belief to build a vibrant events industry in a new world.
So, we started Event People – focused on providing event providers with efficient, reliable and motivated temporary staff looking to enhance and build their careers within the industry.
Event People is more than an event staffing agency. We are committed to the legacy of the events industry, and to its future. We are creating a community of people with energy passion and drive to be part of building a stronger, diverse and more vibrant events industry, providing people with opportunities to learn, develop new skills, and build the experience they need to carve out a career in events.
So far, we’ve partnered with 25 universities across the country offering event management and related courses. We’re working with leading figures from the industry to share insights into what they do, how they got there, and how to succeed in events. We provide our community with a programme, filled with training, advice, and support to track their development, and improve the skills they can offer to future employers and Event People clients.
We’re asking everyone who is committed to the legacy of the events industry to support us as we build the next generation of event managers.
If you’re already established in the industry and are willing to share some of your expertise and experience with our community or you’re an event organiser and there is an opportunity to offer work at your events to students and grads get in touch.
