Managing the Risks

Events don't just run themselves. If you want the best chance of success, you must be able to foresee everything that might possibly go wrong; and have a solution to these problems in place before they even happen. When you are in the middle of running an event; you won't have the time to conceive and implement a solution; unless that solution has already been put in place.
 
Part of managing risk in the modern world is providing security. Even private parties may well need some provision for security; to deal with unexpected developments, such as intoxicated guests or gate crashers.
 
Employing staff or a security firm to provide a low-key patrolling presence is the best way to deter various anti-social acts and vandalism and to ensure that nuisance and damage is prevented. This will also meet legal requirements to uphold by-laws relevant to public spaces and meet the requirements of all sections of the community as far as possible - with the minimum of intrusion. Staff used for patrolling should attend such training courses as ‘Dealing with the Public’ to learn how to deal with the general public and to handle difficult people without being injured.
 
Key requirements of a patrol officer would be multi-functional and include:
  1. Opening and closing the site in line with the local council by-laws.
  2. Walking and visually checking the site.
  3. Reporting incidents and any defects - by completing relevant forms.
  4. Upholding the By-Laws and liaising with police and others as and when necessary.
  5. Picking up litter.
  6. Assisting members of the public with site information.
 
 
 
 
Career Opportunities

Study alone can never guarantee career success; but a good education is an important starting point.

Success in a career depends upon many things. A course like this is an excellent starting point because it provides a foundation for continued learning, and the means of understanding and dealing with issues you encounter in the workplace.

When you have completed an ACS course, you will have not only learnt about the subject, but you will have been prompted to start networking with experts in the discipline and shown how to approach problems that confront you in this field.

This and every other industry in today’s world is developing in unforeseen ways; and while that is unsettling for anyone who wants to be guaranteed a particular job at the end of a particular course; for others, this rapidly changing career environment is offering new and exciting opportunities almost every month.

If you want to do the best that you can in this industry, you need to recognise that the opportunities that confront you at the end of a course, are probably different to anything that has even been thought of when you commence a course.
