Careers rarely develop the way we plan them. Our career path often takes many twists and turns, with particular events, choices and people influencing our direction.

I would advise having a degree in Human Resource Management and Industrial Relations. Professional training in nursing is necessary in order to understand patient care and what standards are required to provide quality care in an acute hospital setting.

One would also have to understand the value of planning, implementing and evaluating work practices in order to get the best out of employees. The person coming into the job would need to be patient, able to negotiate and work under pressure, as well as work on their own initiative.

Administrative people are interested in work that offers security and a sense of being part of a larger process. They may be at their best operating under supervisors who give clear guidelines, and performing routine tasks in a methodical and reliable way.

They tend to enjoy clerical and most forms of office work, where they perform essential administrative duties. They often form the backbone of large and small organisations alike. They may enjoy being in charge of office filing systems, and using computers and other office equipment to keep things running smoothly. They usually like routine work hours and prefer comfortable indoor workplaces.

Event managers are needed to generate event ideas and facilitate them professionally. From a global event like the St. Patrick’s Festival to regional food and sport weekends, public celebrations and festivals, event management has evolved into big business. This growth nationally and internationally has been fuelled by the increase in the number, size and sophistication of events. Ireland has a thriving events sector which hosts exciting and varied events and festivals all throughout the year.

Studying this course will give you practical and theoretical skills in all aspects of event management. The event manager oversees and arranges all aspects of the event. Students become knowledgeable in areas such as event planning and design, marketing, sponsorship, staging and health and safety.

Students are equipped with knowledge, understanding and professional management skills needed to be successful in the exciting and vibrant events industry.

As well as event specific subjects such as Event Staging, Event Industry Studies and Event Risk Management, students follow a broad business course with subjects such as Management, Marketing and Finance and Law being some of the key areas studied to ensure that our graduates are well equipped to be successful in the sector.

European Languages are becoming ever-increasingly important in the world of work and therefore students also study one European language.

To ensure that our students hit the ground running, there are two hundred hours of work placement to complete in first year. Students on the programme will also undertake a six-month professional internship/placement in Year 3.
