Postings for roles in the events industry as a whole are up 172% compared to this time last year, according to jobs site Indeed.
Postings have risen 29% between May and July alone, while postings still lag 32% behind where they were in 2019, experts said that based on the current trajectory they could reach their pre-pandemic levels by November.
Roles in the events sector currently being advertised on the site include event managers, visitor experience managers and event hosts at some of the UK’s major tourist attractions. Venues are also hiring stewards, security managers, ticket salespeople and audio-visual technical assistants as they scale up their operations.
Jack Kennedy (UK economist, Indeed) said: “The full reopening of the economy across Britain spells good news for the events sector, which has spent much of the pandemic stuck in a deep freeze.
“Job postings are now well on their way to reaching pre-pandemic levels.
“Jobseekers have also leapt at the chance to start work in the sectors that have been all but closed since March 2020. Some workers may have switched to another industry while festivals were cancelled and sporting events were held behind closed doors, but are now flocking back to their previous roles as stewards and in nightclubs.”
