You’ll be working as part of our Street Team to distribute flyers and sell shows to the public for a select number of shows at Underbelly. You will be reporting directly to our Street Team Manager. Previous experience is not essential, although an interest and passion for theatre, comedy, circus and all forms of the arts are, as well as a top-notch personality. You must be a good communicator, extremely friendly and confident and be comfortable chatting with anyone. You will be out on the streets of Edinburgh 7 hours a day, rain, hail or shine, day or night promoting some of the best shows on the Fringe. You will meet lots of great people as well as having some bizarre Fringe experiences and it's a great way to experience the Festival.
Dates of work: Most jobs will be 28th July to 31st August inclusive, some postions may start/finish earlier.
Pay is £8.21 per hour 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 get free entrance to all our shows and discounts in our bars.
You will need to be over 18 and find your own accommodation within Edinburgh as we do not provide any staff accommodation.
On average shift lengths are between 6-8 hours, with longer days during the beginning and end of the festival.
