Associate Training

Would you like to work with a forward thinking small business that likes to do things differently?

If you have experience of working in sustainability, or working in the events industry, you could become an Associate for our sister company Sustainable Events Ltd.

In keeping with our values of collaboration and leadership, Sustainable Events ltd. want to work with other people to create change in the events industry and to support other like-minded individuals who want to grow their businesses, expand their skills, gain new work and learn about sustainability in the events industry. Associates work on a freelance basis, delivering workshops and education for clients who want to produce sustainable events.

Payment rates are transparent and there are lots of opportunities to increase workloads and earn more money for those who are motivated and committed.  All materials, support and training are provided, for a one off cost (which you can make back in just a day of work with us). To become an Associate, you will be required to complete an application and attend a day training course, which includes a short assessment.  Associate membership cost is £500 +VAT (excluding any travel or accommodation costs) and training sessions take place approximately twice per year.

If you’re not from the UK, this is no problem. We are a global organisation meaning we want to build a community of associates all over the world. Therefore, we have online associate training plus a call with the associate manager to ensure you are comfortable with what you’ve learnt.

Interested? Apply online via Sustainable Events Ltd, or email us on and we’ll be in touch very soon!

I do thank you all for all your support and guidance during my time as an Associate. I learnt a lot and the whole experience was very worthwhile.
