Event Staff / Head Promoter

Dusk (Leeds)

Dusk was a student run events company that organised and hosted nightclub events around Leeds; I was lucky enough to secure a very active role within this company during my university placement year, which led to me gaining a wealth of valuable experience. 

My roles included: 

  • Head promoter: I was responsible for recruiting staff and building a team of promoters to raise awareness of the events, both online and offline, in order to attract as many attendees as possible.
  • Liaising with clients: I was always present at client meetings, such as meeting with venue managers and other event brands. I was also required to make sure that any DJ’s and performers that we had booked made it both into Leeds and to the venue with minimal problems.  
  • Venue preparation: Ensuring that the venue was set up with the necessary equipment and decoration for the various events that we organised.  

Being given the responsibility of recruiting and managing staff has given me valuable people management skills; attending meetings with venue managers has given me an insight into what it entails when booking a venue. Overall seeing an event progress from the initial proposal to a successful night has convinced me that being involved in event and entertainment management is a career that I want to pursue.
