ESSA, or the Event Services Supplier Association, has launched a portal online full of educational videos to convince young people to work in event planning.
"ESSA has invested in this initiative to help companies campaign and spread the word about the breadth and variety of the career paths in events," said Chris Criscione, ESSA chair, Events Industry Alliance (EIA) chair and managing director of Equinox Design. "Now everyone will have the material they need to make a compelling case for careers in the event industry."
Andrew Harrison, ESSA director, commented: "The Talent and Recruitment Hub is the culmination of a great deal of hard work, and it gives us a valuable springboard for our campaign to recruit young talent into event services. We’ll keep adding more content for everyone to use as part of their efforts to attract career starters into the industry."
As part of the launch, ESSA is also promoting its vacancies board to members, providing a resource for job-seekers, careers advisors and employment agencies, and helping them to match the right applicants to the right positions.
