Our Support Team
Our junior event co-ordinators are responsible for assisting us with much of the pre-event planning as well as the onsite logistics for our events. They form an integral part of our team and have all been personally selected by us for their professionalism, presentation and ability to think on their feet. We offer them an opportunity to learn about the industry and they work with us on all of our projects assisting us in ensuring we create the most successful and fantastic experience for all of our clients!
We also offer annual intern and training opportunities to students studying and needing experience and exposure in our vibrant industry.
And lastly, when the scope of a project requires additional expertise, we have a core team of senior contract coordinators, who work with us on a project by project basis. They have specialised skills in sponsorship, event planning, public relations, conference management and marketing. When we feel the brief requires these additional team members they are brought on as part of the Chocolate Orange Events team.
