What's it like working at Reed Exhibitions Australia?

We asked a few of our employees to describe their career development and their experiences in our work community. These are their stories.

FLYN ROBERTS, Event Manager, Retail Portfolio
Flyn Roberts
“I’ve been with Reed for 9 years, starting as a fresh-faced eager beaver back in 2007. I was employed as Production Supervisor and my role was the management of the trade guides for Reed Gift Fairs – back in the day when print advertising was king and digital was an unknown universe.

Over the years, in between all the fun, I learnt a lot about the world of events/exhibitions and moved into an Exhibition Coordinator role when Reed acquired Life Instyle. It was a giant leap for me as we had a very small team, a unique event and plenty of responsibility. We pulled it off in true Reed style and I continued in the Life Instyle team for 4 more years, being promoted to Senior Exhibition Coordinator along the way. In 2015, I returned to my Gift Fairs roots when the coordination for the retail portfolio was amalgamated into one super team – a team in which I now have the pleasure of overseeing as Event Manager.

I have too many awesome memories over the years to list but I think the overarching theme is always the fact that Reed Exhibitions truly is one big crazy family. We work hard but we play hard too and I wouldn’t want to do it anywhere else.”

JAMES GUERIN, Sales Executive
James Guerin
“Working at Reed Exhibitions has been a fantastic experience. Being part of such a reputable global brand gives me pride and confidence when communicating with clients. I’m a fresh face at RXA but in my 3 months here, it has been my experience that Reed genuinely strives to deliver on quality and valuable customer experience. It is both challenging and enjoyable working in this fast-paced sales environment. Working within a supportive and fun team makes me look forward to coming to work every day.”

ASHLEY DESIRA, Human Resources Co-ordinator
Ashley Desira
“I believe the company speaks for itself when you are working alongside wonderful individuals who have been with the company for over 8 years. You get the opportunity to work with other Reed Staff from around the world, witness the amazing efforts of each team when you go onsite, take in the atmosphere of the incredible event and see teams and individuals bring home industry award trophies!

Working at Reed is fast-paced yet everyone has time to stop and lend a hand. Everyone works, lives and breathes events.

As Human Resources Co-Ordinator, I am also Head of the Social Committee and it is one of my priorities to ensure staff get to have fun at work!”

BRAD WHEELER, Senior Operations Manager
Brad Wheeler
“Reed Exhibitions is a dynamic, exciting and energized company that focuses on continuous improvement of its people, process and delivery of our events.

It has a great focus on the success of our exhibitors and the successful experience of the visitors.

Personally, Reed Exhibitions has given me the opportunity to develop into a senior role of Operations Manager through the Emerging Leaders Program, internal training and the core value of promoting Reed Exhibition employees.

Reed Exhibitions has a strong set of company values focusing on Customer Service, Passion and Collaboration which allows me to expand and develop the way that I interact with my colleagues and our many customers”

Cory McCarrick
“I started my RXA career in 2010 at the age of 26, when I first arrived in Australia from the UK. I had been offered a data entry temporary position while I was in Sydney on my working holiday visa. I was lucky enough to work on several different teams/portfolios and was offered a permanent role as a Sales Executive on the Industrial Portfolio. The team was fantastic and I really loved working in the exhibitions industry, so I decided that I would stay in Australia permanently. The amazing coaching and leadership I received from my Manager lead me to being promoted to an account manager and subsequently to a new event as a Sales Manager.

RXA have provided me with fantastic opportunities, coaching, and the skills to help me grow into more senior positions within the business. I have recently applied for the RXA Emerging Leaders Program which is designed to develop employees and to provide career progression for aspiring leaders.

The exhibitions industry is a fun and rewarding industry to work in and I am excited about my future with the world’s leading exhibition organizer.”
