Party animal: a person that enjoys socialising, staying out late and dancing until their feet hurt. Can always be found at the nearest social event .
Sound like you? If you got home at 3am this morning and already have the next night out planned then keep the party going by considering some of these careers... Shy and retiring wall flowers need not apply.
Sometimes the idea of organising a birthday, hen party or business function complete with free Champagne for everyone can be really daunting, so who better to plan it than a party animal?
From the personal to the professional, event managers organise things right down to the last detail - think venue, staff, guest list, drinks and everything in between. Just make sure you listen to what the employer wants. Stock traders expecting a 5 star meal won’t be impressed by a nightclub where their feet stick to the floor.

If you’ve ever gone to a wedding, you’ll know how much work it can be and often it's just too much to handle for the happy couple.
Flowers, venue, music, photographer, guest list and making sure that certain people aren’t invited (awkward)... it's no wonder bridezillas go on the rampage. The wedding planner’s job is to make it all look simple.
Get it wrong and you won't survive the bride’s wrath, get it right and your diary will start filling up quicker than you can say 'I do'.
Pounding music, flowing drinks and a room packed full of clubbers - sounds like your typical weekend, right? Except in these jobs you’re not just taking part in the evening's festivities, you’re creating it. And there are plenty of jobs to help you bring something to the party (well, it’d be rude not to).
Bartender: Supplying the necessary drinks to fellow party animals so they can build up the courage to dance with the person they’ve been staring at all night.
DJ: Get it right and you’re providing the soundtrack to their night, get it wrong and be prepared for lots of abuse and drunk people shouting 'Boooo!'
Bouncer: Chucking out the trouble makers and telling people wearing trainers to go and buy a decent pair of shoes in time for next week.
Club manager: Organising and hiring all of the above. Making sure the club is so full that no one can move and the queue outside takes over an hour.
Working as a holiday rep seems fairly simple: partying with tourists till the early hours and sleeping on the beach in your spare time.
While some of this job is partying or 'taking people on excursions', be warned, this isn’t a job for people wanting to kill time between tanning. From organising entertainment and dealing with holidaymaker’s problems, you’ll even have to do admin. That’s right, even if you’re working abroad there’s no escaping admin.

Good at shameless self promotion when you’re out on the town? Then PR could be for you. Trying to create as much publicity as possible for your employer, it’s all about getting noticed, which can mean plenty of parties to drum up interest.
Looking for guaranteed glamour? Then you may want to look somewhere else - you could work for a fancy fashion company organising a cocktail night to promote their latest clothes line or you could work for a construction company giving out free hard-hats to builders.
