FAQs on our Wedding Planner Internship

Jake, m

 

Do I have to be studying Event Planning at University?
No. Although many interns are or have studied at University, it is not a requirement for the Wedding Planning Internship. You must be interested in the job, hard-working and enthusiastic to learn.    


Will there be an interview?
Due to the high volume of applications, we are not able to conduct interviews. Everyone who has attended our Life of  a Wedding Planner" Workshop is eligible to be short-listed for an Internship, should they wish to apply. 

All of our interns have attended our "The Life of a Wedding Planner" Workshop.  

   

How long is the internship?
The Internship lasts for 4 months - we have several cycles throughout the year and in 2019 these will be; 

February, April and September. 


How many days a week will I work?
We are very flexible on which days you can work but it must be for a minimum of three days per week. 

    

What are the normal working hours?
Your normal working hours will be 11.00 a.m. to 5.00 p.m.   On certain days you may be required to start earlier or finish later, such as if we have meetings outside of the office at venues or with clients. You will always have notice of when these days will be. 


Where will I be working?
Our office is in Canary Wharf, London E14. The nearest Tube is Canary Wharf on the the Jubilee Line or DLR.

   

What will I be doing?
You will be assisting Dominique to organise and plan weddings and events, which could include anything from attending meetings with clients, viewing venues, preparing reports and budgets, drafting letters and emails, designing table plans and other printed materials, telephone inquiries and general office work.  


It is very hands on and you will receive lots of training and experience in organising events. 

   

What is the Dress Code?
When you are working at the office it is casual dress code. When you are out at viewings or with clients it will be smart business.  Please note I work from a home office and I have a wonderful, friendly golden retriever, Jake. 


Do you cover Travel Expenses?
We will pay your London travel expenses to and from the office and any travel costs to attend meetings. 

You will be given an Oyster card for your use whilst you are with us. 


Will I be paid?
Internships are unpaid.    


Is there a charge to do work experience with you?
It should not cost you any money to work with us. There are no charges or costs involved.

    

What will I get at the end of my Internship?
At the end of your Internship Dominique will provide you with a Reference and a Certificate and assistance with your CV; which will hopefully help you get a head start in finding a full time job in event planning.    


Do you offer shorter work experience?
Opportunities are also available for one or two weeks work experience, but there is no schedule for this as it depends on when we have weddings. Anyone who has attended a course will also be eligible for short-term work experience if that suits them better.
