We are once again running our Event Assistant summer placement scheme at Goodwood. Running from May through to the end of September, we will be offering the unique opportunity to join the Event Operations team at the heart of delivering our spectacular headline motorsport events; Festival of Speed and Goodwood Revival.

The scheme is open to event management students, recent graduates, and those with a passion for events, looking at this opportunity to build experience ahead of a career in events, potentially at Goodwood! 

In this exciting and fast-paced role, every day will be different.  You will join a fun and passionate team, supporting our permanent Event Planners to build the Festival of Speed, one of the largest greenfield event sites in the UK, before moving on to enjoy the build, theatrics and set dressing of the Goodwood Revival.  You will gain exposure into the operations and logistics involved with delivering world class events, and leave with an abundance of experience under your belt.

The role is fixed term from 1 May – 30 September (or for a period within that but at least 16 weeks from 28 May). 

Due to the nature of events and the requirements of this role, holiday will be restricted to between 18 July and 4 August during this period.  Unfortunately, we are unable to progress with any candidates who wish to take holiday outside of these dates. There may be exceptions made for individual date requests for graduation and other similar life events.  Please specify these requests in your application. 

The normal working hours are Monday to Friday 8.30am - 5.30pm, with extended hours and some weekend working required in the lead up to each of the events.
