ON the day support

If you are just looking for an extra pair of hands on the day, Southcoast Conferences can provide a specialised event team for events taking place on and off University sites to ensure your delegates and guests get a friendly and professional welcome to your event.

We engage with students across the University of Brighton and offer them the chance to join our dedicated Events Team where they are offered training and are supervised to provide them with professional work experience that they can add to their CV.

Each event, depending on size will require at least one Event Supervisor to oversee the staff. The amount of staff required will be subject to a number of factors like size of the venue, number of delegates, nature of the event. The final number of staff required will be decided by the Southcoast Event Support Manager upon initial scoping meeting with the client.

Southcoast Event Supervisor       £240.00 per day

Southcoast Event Student            £180.00 per day
