Delivering extraordinary experiences and events for our clients is the heart of our mission at , proudly managed by . Our people are instrumental in building and maintaining this world class brand, and we’re thinking deeply about how we continue to invest in the future pathways and professionals of this rapidly evolving business events industry.
Partnering with the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) and TAFE NSW has opened doors for brilliant talent to develop their knowledge, skillsets and readiness for a career in our dynamic business events industry. We recently hosted the annual Careers Insights event on Thursday 20 April, attended by students from UTS’s event management school, who heard from ICC Sydney’s leaders, professionals and UTS alumni working at the venue on building long-term careers not just at ICC Sydney, but throughout the industry at large. These career pathways may include event services, culinary services, audio visual services, information technology, human resources, finance, business development, communications, and administration, amongst others.
Our relationship with TAFE NSW has seen hundreds of ICC Sydney team members, trainees and apprentices receive quality training from industry experts tailormade to meet our gold standard service benchmarks and expectations, like the Professional Growth Traineeship Program – granting participants a unique opportunity to work while studying in areas including audio visual, event management, business service, risk management, culinary and customer service. We are also proud to have developed pre-employment training programs for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students, which has enabled participants to secure employment with ICC Sydney, along with cultural awareness and education training being delivered to employees. Fostering learning opportunities for up-and-coming professionals is integral to future-proofing our standard of event delivery, enabling emerging talent to build rich career journeys across our services.
