If you’re detail-oriented, love organisation, aren’t scared of multitasking and get a thrill every time you see an event go off without a hitch, then you’ve found your calling – you’re destined to be an events manager.

Is event planning a fun career?

While everyone’s different, it’s safe to say that event planning is definitely a fun career! No two days are ever the same, and there are few things more satisfying than watching an event you’ve planned run without a hitch and seeing the attendees having a fantastic time. It makes sense then that event planners consistently rate themselves as being happy in their careers.

What do event planners earn?

Typical entry-level event planner roles start at around £20,000 a year. Once you gain a little more experience you can expect to earn £22,000 to £25,000, while salaries for event manager roles go up to £40,000.

It’s not unusual however for event planners to work as freelancers, or to launch their own companies, at which point the sky’s pretty much the limit when it comes to your earning potential!

What does an event planner do?

There’s a lot more to event management than you might imagine. Whether it’s weddings, sports or corporate conferences, a tremendous amount of work goes into planning events and making sure they go off without a hitch.

An event planner’s exact role will vary depending on the industry they are operating in. Essentially, they are responsible for the organising and execution of a variety of functions. There may also be a requirement to manage a team of people and third-party companies to ensure all events are a roaring success.

Be prepared for the unexpected, keep your cool, and you’ll be a successful, highly sought-after event manager.
