I have been managing and assisting at events for the past 5 years, ranging from small functions to large scale international events all over the UK. Throughout this time I have focused on and enjoyed the recognition by clients of hospitality that has enhanced their reputation. I am now looking to become part of a more broad events team with the opportunity to develop and manage events for both established and new clients. I started out as a waiter in the summer of first year of university and began supervising for Splendid Events' Manchester team in my 3rd year. This senior role included the supporting and training of new staff and writing their appraisals for senior management. During this time the company trained me in silver service, cocktail bar work and team support.
