An award-winning Cornish event management company is celebrating its first successful year in business by recruiting some home-grown talent.
Event Cornwall enjoyed a busy 12 months since being established in early 2008 and has taken on Cornish graduate Amy Weeks to support its growing client base.
Since starting up, Event Cornwall has gained many sought after clients including the BBC, Cornwall College, University College Falmouth, Totally Truro Business Improvement District and the City of Lights parade.
Weeks, aged 23 from Truro, has joined the team as project administrator, working closely with director Claire Eason-Bassett.
She said: “At the moment, it doesn’t feel like a job because I’m enjoying it so much.
“It’s a real inspiration to work with the team. Claire has so much energy and knows so much about the industry, so I’m certainly learning from the best.
“It’s great to be with a company that is keen to nurture young talent.”
Event Cornwall specialises in art and community events, exhibitions, productions and training, pulling together a strong network of contacts and experience.
Weeks’s role is supported by Unlocking Cornish Potential, the Combined Universities in Cornwall graduate placement scheme.
Steve Bough, UCP’s business development manager for the creative sector, said: “Event Cornwall is a flourishing company that has had early success, and wants to build on that success by recruiting a graduate through the Unlocking Cornish Potential Scheme.
“We are pleased to be able to help growing businesses, like this, through a complete support package, which can also include a wage subsidy and we wish Event Cornwall every success.”
