About us

We have all read the many stories published in 2020 about how many jobs have been made redundant in our industry.  This has led to an excessive number of event professionals at all levels from our industry workforce, out of work.  As no financial support seems forthcoming from the government, as leading industry recruiters for this sector, we couldn’t just stand by without trying to make a difference.

esprecruitment and tfconnect have joined forces to lead an initiative to help event professionals whose jobs have been made redundant due to COVID-19, by providing a “one-stop-shop” of services.

We are hoping to offer the following services for the unemployed during the pandemic.

 

  •  Outplacement webinars –Practical workshops to equip people with the skills needed to maximise their chances of securing the right next move.
  •  One-to-one support - Personal coaching and support from one of our professional consultants for more senior event professionals.
  •  Job search toolkit - A comprehensive Job Search Toolkit to support those candidates who can’t attend webinars.
  •  CV review - Our consultants will review the CV’s of those facing redundancy and provide constructive feedback and assistance on preparing your CV for the events market.
  •  Keeping in-touch and engaged with the events industry - A regular industry newsletter/podcast to keep those out of work from our industry abreast of what is going on in the industry and engaged in the market.
  •  Online training - A series of online training modules created by us and external suppliers to upskill those who are waiting for their next exhibition/event opportunity – IT skills, sales skills, online marketing skills, strategy sessions and developing digital skills. Provided for free or subsidised, if from external suppliers.
  •  An online presence – we will create a database of employees ready to work on a freelance or permanent basis which employers looking to recruit will have access to directly.
  •  Online socials – time to network and keep in touch with event professionals in the same boat.

 

esprecruitment and tfconnect have over 35 years of event recruitment experience between them, as well as many years working hands on in the industry.  We have all the contacts and expertise to ensure that these services are delivered efficiently and professionally and will try to ensure that we all try and support each other.
