Maybe you have recently been to a concert or festival which has made you realise you're in the wrong job and your future is in the events industry. There are many specialist recruitment companies you could enlist the help from but like any job, experience is vital. So how do you get experience in a job you have never done before?

Well quite simply the best way into any industry that you have no experience in is to simply offer your services as a volunteer. You will gain a wealth of experience through volunteering at live venues. With the event industry you will be working with large groups of people, solving problems, have to be organised and motivated, all of which would be great experience and look great on your CV. If you're keen and work hard you could even get yourself a reference. Having voluntary work on your CV shows potential employers you're keen to work and serious about working in the industry.

So where to you start? There are many concert halls, conventions, clubs, sporting events around the country that you could approach. The types of jobs are very varied. Jobs such as security, catering, runners, AV (audio visual) crew, technical crew, sales, managers, directors, talent bookers, waiters, managers and directors... I could go on. You could start off as a runner, and in a few years be running the whole show!

If you're thinking of working at music festivals and the like because you think it's a great way of going to all the events without paying.

Did You Know!
Although the town is often thought of as a relatively recent settlement without much history, the name Middlesbrough can be traced back a long way. Mydilsburgh is the earliest recorded form of the name. The element '-burgh', from the Old English burh (meaning 'fort') denotes an ancient fort or settlement of pre-Anglian origin. The spelling brough sets Middlesbrough apart from other English towns, which typically use the spelling borough.

Middlesbrough is a very large town in the northeast of England, in the county of north Yorkshire. It has a population of almost 150,000 and is located approximately 250 miles away from London due north. Due to is rapidly growing population, a number of towns and villages which were once outlying settlements are now suburbs of the town itself.

The town is located on the southern shores of the River Tees which is only a few miles away from the national park, North York Moors.
The second largest port in the United Kingdom is also located in the area, about 3 miles due east of the town itself. There is also an airport nearby, The Durham Tees Valley Airport.

Middlesbrough is now home to a university which was established in 1992. As a result, the town has developed a lively student atmosphere and a significant nightlife. There is also a growing arts scene with a local institute of modern art which opened a few years ago. Areas of the town are currently being redeveloped in an extremely expensive investment programme.
