Responsibilities of an event manager

An events manager job is incredibly varied and the responsibilities depend largely on the position and the industry you work in. However, as the title suggests, events managers are generally in charge of overseeing and executing all elements of an event, including planning, research, logistics and follow-up, acting as the go-to person should any stakeholders have questions or concerns.  With strict deadlines and many moving parts, it is a high-pressure job that requires a flexible and calm approach at all times.

What are the qualities of a great events manager?

Those looking for an event project manager job need to have exceptional organisational and communication skills, as well an outstanding eye for detail.

As there is a propensity for things to go wrong at every turn, a great events manager should always take a flexible approach, be able to think on their feet, remain calm under pressure and act proactively, recognising and adapting to potential problems before they arise.

As an events manager will often work in a team environment, they need to be able to collaborate and delegate easily.

How do I become an events manager?

Most administrative professionals looking to move into an events manager position will start in an events assistant job. You may then move into an events administrator job, or jump straight to an events manager role, dependent on the size of the company. From there, there may be an opportunity to progress into an event director job in a larger organisation, taking on a senior leadership position.

As event management is a transferable skill, there is also potential to become an international events manager, overseeing conferences, parties, roadshows and other types of large events globally.

How much does an events manager earn?

In the not-for-profit sector, events managers can expect to earn anywhere between £30,000-£45,000, while in the creative sector, the upper band increases to be £50,000.

In professional services, the salary of an events manager can range from £40,000-£60,000. In financial services, the band increases slightly to be £45,000-£70,000.

However, these numbers should act as a guide only – an events manager salary will depend on the industry they are working in and the responsibilities of the role.
