Front of House Staff and Supervisors
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 work closely with the Box Office team and, like them, meet lots of people and therefore must be strong communicators. 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 venues are 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 no sitting at desks involved in the job so you should be good on your feet, have a confident manner, a big voice, and be willing to scramble to action at a moments’ notice.
Dates of work: Most jobs will be 30th July to 30th August inclusive, some postions may start/finish earlier.
Pay is minimum wage (£7.50 for 25yrs+, £7.05 per hour for 21 yr - 24 yr olds and £5.60 per hour for 18 – 20 yr olds) and shifts vary from day to day. You will be expected to be able to work everyday throughout the Fringe, and will be given a minimum of two days off. You will be required to attend 4 hours of orientation and training which is unpaid.
