Events Industry Benefits

Event Industry Benefits

With talent in the events industry having never been in such short supply, businesses have become more inventive in how they create the most attractive working environment for their employees.

There is huge upward pressure on salaries throughout the industry, although most businesses have held back from awarding large “across the business” pay rises – instead preferring to offer greater flexibility and broader career opportunities.

One of the growing trends is flexible / home working – with this now seen as a normal working practice by most employees.

Other benefits offered include;

  • Car or car allowance

  • Holidays that can be flexed up or built upon with additional year’s service

  • Company related bonus

  • Days off for your birthday

  • Free fruit

  • Subsidised gym membership

  • Cycle to work scheme

  • Eye care

  • Annual personal development vouchers

  • Duvet days

  • Rewards such as high street vouchers

  • Childcare vouchers

  • Time off (fully paid) to complete charity work

Often a missed “benefit” is the working culture within an organisation, but this is cited as one of the most important factors when a candidate is deliberating on numerous offers.


Culture is hard to quantify, but interviewers who present their company in the most positive way (explaining the benefits / career opportunity / culture etc) and conduct the interview in a more “conversational manner” often have the greatest success in securing candidates they offer roles to.


If you would like more detailed feedback on how your salaries and benefits compare with the rest of the market please feel free to call one of our team.

  • RECRUITMENT ACCOUNT MANAGER - EVENTS SECTOR

    Posted 13 days ago

    No pointless KPI's | Great team ethos | Exciting event sector | Fabulous earning opportunity | Active clients. It doesn't get much better!

    Who are we?
    We're an award winning recruitment agency that started small, has grown substantially and is now on a fast track trajectory to even greater heights! We're a business full of passionate, hardworking and fun-loving people who work for some of the best creative, event, experiential, AV, Exhibition and corporate clients. With a stellar year behind us we're busy, we're hiring, and we've got an awesome opportunity for a talented person to join our team.

    Why join us?
    The jobs market is bouyant so there will be lots of options to consider, but we think we offer something different, and here's just a few of them;

    A great team: Everyone says it, but we truly do work as one team, everyone supporting each other and celebrating successes in an honest and genuine way. Everyone has a part to play in what we do and how we develop as a business, so open forums and idea sharing are integral to our success.

    Advertising / reputation: We have built a great name in the industry which means that we're now the "go to" people for clients and candidates. New clients contact us all of the time and great candidates come to us for their next career move. On top of that we also outperform all of our competitors in the sector with a very well resourced (and financed) advertising budget.

    Career opportunity: We trust and develop our team, that's why almost everyone in the business has been promoted at least once during their time with us. For example, two of our Directors joined us as Account Managers, and five of our Account Managers joined us as Resourcers. If you have the talent and drive we will support and develop you in every way we can.

    Hours: We treat people in a grown up way - that's why we offer flexible hours. Want to come in late - no problem, want to leave early, again no problem. It's all about the work being done.

    Social stuff: We do all kinds of things, lunches, dinners, awards (cheesy but fun), team outings, feel good Fridays (we finish at 4:30pm and have a beer), quarterly incentives (the last one was a day out at the Polo - the next is the Crystal Maze) amongst many other things. Just because it's a good thing to do.

    Benefits: 26 days holiday + bank holidays + the option to take another 3 unpaid, season ticket loan, guaranteed bonus, flexi time, etc etc. Not bad we think..

    The environment: Yes there are bean bags, music playing, fresh fruit, random tea flavours and all the other stuff you'll find in a modern office, but what really makes it special is the positive vibe and supportive / happy team.

    The role
    This is an end to end recruitment role, but with a very limited focus on sales (there's already lots of existing clients who need looking after), including;

    - Taking a detailed brief, really understanding the clients business
    - Searching for candidates through our network
    - Advertising and managing the responses
    - Briefing in resourcers
    - Interviewing candidates
    - Preparing the shortlist
    - Liaising and consulting with the client throughout the process
    - Managing offers

    What do we look for? First it's about chemistry, we have a tight team so you'll need to be a sociable person who doesn't take themselves too seriously and can enjoy the friendly office vibe. Second is experience. There are two routes for anyone joining us - those from a recruitment background and those from the events industry. If your experience is within recruitment then you will need to have specialised in permanent recruitment (at a reasonably senior level) and be able to demonstrate success.

    If you're from the events industry we find that the easiest transition is for someone from an events / production / experiential or exhibition background - as these are the areas we tend to focus on.
