Front of House
Front of House
The front of house team are responsible for getting audiences to the right theatre, troubleshooting, making sure shows start on time, ushering and being friendly to all members of the public. You will work closely with the box office team and like them, meet lots of people and therefore must be a strong communicator.
Front of house are the eyes and ears of the venue. They patrol all areas to make sure audiences are getting to where they need to be on time and ensure the venue is clean and running smoothly. As well as this, you are there to answer any questions that either public or performers may have. You should be friendly, confident, good with people and able to organise large numbers of people. There’s not any sitting at desks involved in the job so you should be good on your feet, have a confident manner and big voice, and be willing to scramble to action at a moments notice.
You must have excellent customer service skills and be able to keep your cool under pressure. You should also have an interest in our programme and the shows we put on, whether it be circus, comedy, theatre or music.
Shifts are arranged around our programme, therefore you must be happy to work evenings and weekends!
Dates of work are approximately 28th July - 31st of August 2019
CONDITIONS: Pay is hourly at £8.21 per hour and shifts vary from day to day. You should be able to work for the entire period. On average shift lengths are between 6-8 hours, with longer days during the beginning and end of the festival.
