Finding German-Speaking Events Jobs in the UK
Sprechen sie Deutsch? Work in the events industry? You’re in demand!
Bringing a successful show to the German market is popular practice for UK event organisers. Being just a short hop onto the continent and with similar (often larger) target communities, Germany is a destination of choice for geo-cloning events, particularly if it’s a smaller organiser’s first foray into international markets.
The increasing number of ‘Germanised’ shows has created a substantial job market for German-speakers here in the UK, as the shows are so often managed and sold from London offices.
The scale of this practice is such that organisers are now struggling to find German-speaking events talent, based in the UK.
The roles on offer are diverse, spanning a range of industry sectors from manufacturing to agriculture to consumer food and health shows. Despite the limited number of German-speakers, organisers tend only to accept quality applicants with relevant experience. A background in exhibitions or publishing is often necessary and at the very least, we would look for a strong, proven sales history.
If you have the right skillset, you have an excellent opportunity to land a standout role.
If you’re a German-speaking salesperson with events experience, now is a great time to take a look at what’s out there, as you are officially in demand!
