Front Of House Assistants (Seasonal)

Seasonal, Part-Time (8.5 hours per week)
£9 per hour

The Marlowe, Canterbury is one of this country’s most successful large-scale independent theatres, with a 1,200-seat Theatre, a 150-seat Studio and The Marlowe Kit, an 800 year-old building which we plan to transform into a learning centre and heritage experience.

We present a year-round programme of national touring productions across a range of artforms including theatre, dance, opera and music. Since becoming a self-funding independent charitable trust in 2018 we have begun to develop a more mixed economy, with a 5-year plan to commission and produce work at all scales alongside the presented programme. Supporting artists and developing the creative lives of the next generation are central to our mission to be the engine house for the performing arts in our region and to shape the spirit of Kent.

We are seeking friendly, empathetic and enthusiastic Front of House Assistants (8.5-hours) to join our customer-facing team for our busy seasonal programme, including our pantomime Jack And The Beanstalk. This fixed-term contract will run from Monday 1 November 2021 to Sunday 9 January 2022. You will work 8.5 hours a week, with the potential for overtime, and will be required to work either Boxing Day or New Year’s Day, and either Christmas Eve or New Year’s Eve.

You will be approachable, adaptable, and enthusiastic, having pride in delivering excellent customer service standards.

We want to work with people who are passionate about their work, resilient in the face of any challenge that comes their way and supportive of their colleagues.

The Marlowe is an inclusive employer. We value difference and recruit by merit based on fair and open competition. We welcome candidates from all backgrounds and from all sectors. We are particularly keen to hear from Black and Asian candidates, candidates from a diverse range of backgrounds, and those who identify as D/deaf or disabled.

We are a Creative Green organisation and are committed to taking action on climate change and environmental sustainability.
