Life at the NEC Group

We’re famous for hosting world-class events in iconic venues. ‘Bringing Live to Life’ is what we do each day but it’s our people that make our business. If you join us, you’ll be part of a team working together to create unforgettable live experiences for our customers and our colleagues.

Diversity & inclusivity

We’re a diverse group, from all walks of life. Different interests and passions, different backgrounds and different personalities but we are united by our dedication to creating unforgettable live experiences.

We are continuing to build an inclusive and values led culture for our people, that reflects the rich diversity of our wider community.

Recognising our shining stars

We know how important it is to celebrate and reward the people that work in our business and live our values. That’s why we introduced our ‘Stars’ programme.

Our Stars programme is there to recognise those individuals who go above and beyond to deliver extraordinary service. It might be by helping out a colleague, accepting a challenge with spirited enthusiasm, or by setting the bar a little higher for a project and reaching it.

When we see our values being lived and we think a colleague deserves to be recognised, so have a number of different ways to say “thank you”.

Learning and development

At the NEC Group we have career paths and a clear vision for learning and development, all of which can lead to a rewarding working life.

We offer a wide range of development opportunities through work placements, apprenticeship programmes, interventions with local colleges and universities and an extensive in-house learning and development programme, and we provide tailored plans at every stage of your career whether it’s at your induction or on the job.

Our Learning and Development team are focused on making our people the best they can be now and in the future.

Gender pay gap report

We are committed to realising the potential of our people. Our approach to development - which is focused on making our people the best they can be - blends the need to provide all employees with the knowledge, skills and behaviours necessary to perform their current role with a focus on the future needs of the business and its people.

In 2017, the UK government introduced a requirement for all employers with 250 or more employees to publish and report specific figures about their gender pay gap annually. The Government Equalities Office (GEO) and the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) took the decision on 24th March 2020 to suspend enforcement of the gender pay gap deadlines for the reporting year 2019/20. The decision meant there was no requirement for employers to report their data and with major disruption due to the pandemic we took the decision not to produce a report for 2019/20.
