The role of the Conference Producer, or sometimes called Content Managers, is varied and intellectually challenging. It suits bright, quick thinking, naturally curious people as you will be researching complex subjects in all sorts of areas –finance, telecoms, the environment and much more. You will need to be comfortable interviewing senior directors and analysing and assimilating a wide range of information. You’ll work on multiple projects and need to be organised, commercially focused and passionate about producing top quality events.
Unlike many graduate roles, you'll be quickly encouraged to take on responsibilities for events which have their own budgets and timelines. Producers have the opportunity to progress their careers rapidly and there are frequently opportunities to travel or work overseas.
