With over 25 years’ experience in events, we have close working relationships (and friendships) with many senior players in the industry. This gives us a powerful referral network, extending the reach of our search services.

Thank you so much for your professionalism and good humour. You are truly a talented recruiter and I enjoyed working with you very much.

Jon has been an absolute rockstar of a recruiter in helping me secure my latest role in my career progression. I had the pleasure of working with Jon when a mutual friend introduced us in regards to a vacancy that he had. In comparison to other recruiters that I’ve used in the past I felt that Jon was extremely dedicated, with great knowledge about the events industry. From our first conversation all the way through to securing me an offer, Jon was always extremely helpful, transparent and positive. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a job in the events industry.

Owen has successfully placed me twice in my career. First looking after a Saudi operation and now heading up a recent acquisition in Indonesia. From learning of the opportunity to receiving an offer took around three to four weeks. I really appreciate everything and I’m loving it here.

Jon was extremely supportive in helping me find my new position. He didn’t waste my time by sending me roles which weren’t right for me, and he took the time to really find out what I was looking for in my career. It is clear that he is truly invested in his candidates. He coached me from my pre-interview wobbles through how to hand in my notice and even kept in touch in once I started my new job – a level of service I never experienced from another recruiter. If you are looking for your next step in the event industry, give him a call!

InEvexco have been providing Telegraph Events with insurance services since their inception and the level of service and attentiveness we have received has been unsurpassed. Their specialist knowledge of the needs and requirements of the Events Industry is second to none, which coupled with their enthusiasm and conscientiousness has made them a pleasure to work with.

I would highly recommend Jon to any candidate looking to secure a new role within the events sector. Jon is reliable and shows a genuine interest in candidates and the whole event sector and it has been a pleasure getting to know him.

tfconnect listened to what I was looking for, didn’t waste my time with inappropriate vacancies and placed me with exactly the right company…

Thanks for all your help this year. Your informality makes your business a pleasure to work with…

I have been approached by multiple recruiters and I can safely say that Jon is by far the best in my experience. He is very detailed in his approach and provided all the relevant information which helped me immensely in making up my mind. During entire process he was very helpful and understanding, always prompt with follow ups and kept me updated on status. Thanks again, Jon, and I wish you all the best for the future.
