Description

We are a 17 yr. old company that has produced and managed over 980 events nationwide. We are based in Grand Blanc, Michigan. We have produced, timed and consulted on everything from a fun run to a marathon, a kids triathlon to Half Ironman Triathlons, Duathlons, Mountain bike and Road bike races to Kayak and Stand up Paddleboard events. We do it all and we do it right. We have had several outdoor recreation and event management majors intern with us over the years. If you are looking for hands on experience with a first class event management company that produces events for the right reasons we have a full summer schedule from April thru October. You will travel with the crew to some of the top tourist destinations in the mid-west and beyond. We have 35 events on the schedule for 2016. Weekly work will show you the behind the scenes from marketing to customer service answering athletes emails, to getting EMS, Police, Food, DPW, etc. all set for our arrival in their cities each week. Come and learn from the best. We have opportunities for anyone willing to learn and has a passion for this type of career, so email us and we can work something out. We have worked with pretty much any type of schedule.

Responsibilities

There are literally hundreds of things to do to keep the ship moving, or as we like to say, keep the cogs turning. You will learn everything from the inside out, the weekly jobs getting ready for the next weekends events. The on location jobs from setting up a venue to setting a swim course for triathlon to working intersections on roads to taking 20-30 support crew volunteers out race morning to their positions and training them to do a great job. You will get to learn about driving trucks and trailers, waverunners, paddle boards, customer service, emergency protocols and planning and how to deal with hundreds, sometimes thousands of people at one time.

Requirements

Passion! we do not cut corners, we don't sacrifice the event safety to save a buck, and the outdoor event management business of producing first class triathlon, duathlon and running events is hard work. One day it is sunny and 75, over night the winds are 50 mph. and rain and we still have to put on a first class event in the morning. You need a great attitude all the time with a smile on your face and passion for event management.

Can be full time, part time, will start as an unpaid internship during the week, may lead into paid internship as experience is gained during the week. Weekends AFTER TRAINING will be paid as a crew member like everyone else. Most events are on weekends. We have had both full and part time interns work with us in the past from all over the country. We can take interns all year long. The athletes, their friends, family and spectators as well as cities, parks are all counting on us to put on a first class event so being prepared to be the best person you can be and have a passion about making a great event for the athletes is a big requirement. Please contact us ASAP if you are interested in this great opportunity.
