Each candidate will be assigned a mentor to guide and support them through the programme, passing on vital knowledge and facilitating development.

The roles candidates will undertake whilst on the programme will vary between placements but we will try and give each candidate one placement in their preferred role.

There are many different event roles, so take a look through the role descriptions below to help you understand what each role entails.

There are 20 candidate spots up for grabs, and we are looking for individuals who are positive, enthusiastic and can think on their feet.

Events are fast paced and there is always lots going on, so we will select those who thrive in this environment and who are able to make quick decisions and solve problems.

16th & 17th November 2013 Selection Days
