After 24 years servicing an ever-evolving events industry and, in turn, fulfilling the recruitment needs of a diverse client base along with the many talented candidates seeking new career & work opportunities, the time has come to call it a day, put my feet up, “smell the roses” (and find the time to catch a few more waves!)

I would like to thank all those who have sought our assistance over the past few decades in building their internal events teams, staffing a specific event planning project or providing a workforce to facilitate the successful delivery of events onsite, as well as the many job seekers from around Australia and overseas seeking their next permanent, contract or temporary event management opportunity. It has been a pleasure to work with all of you and I wish you the very best into the future.

Event Recruitment is a specialist staffing, job placement & talent management consultancy, offering a distinctive and highly targeted service to organisations across the Meetings & Events industry, encompassing event management agencies, PCOs, corporate, government, association and not for profit entities, commercial conference and exhibition organisers.

With an extensive and expanding database of specialist event management staff from across Australia, Event Recruitment can quickly and effectively respond to your employment needs through sourcing and recruiting experienced and capable candidates available for contract, temporary or permanent work.

Established in 1999 by Andrena Clark, Event Recruitment was born out of a need to fill a void in the rapidly growing events industry. Over this time we have made a significant contribution to the ongoing growth and success of organisations in this industry across Australia.

Whilst there are hundreds of recruitment agencies, none specialise nor have the networks and first-hand knowledge of this unique industry that we do. Our knowledge of the events industry comes from both years of working within the industry and recruiting for it.  This means we have a unique insight and understanding of your needs.

We are more than just recruitment consultants.  We are also active participants in the events industry.  We are members of MEA, we regularly write for industry journals, we survey the market to identify industry and salary trends and every day we talk to decision makers in the industry about the issues they are facing and to candidates who seek guidance and support as they navigate the next step in their event career.

This all adds up to an informed and dedicated approach to resolving your recruitment and staffing needs and genuine support in the creation of effective and lasting relationships between candidates and clients within this vibrant industry sector.
