Venue Assistant

The Bush Theatre is looking for organised and enthusiastic Venue Assistants to work as part of the operations team in order to provide the best possible visitor experience and maximize revenue.

This is a casual role and we are looking for Venue Assistants to work evenings and weekends with a particular focus on Thursdays – Saturdays, and occasionally Sundays. You will need to provide regular availability on these days.

In this role you will:

  • be a working member of our Bar and Front of House team.
  • run service – meeting, greeting and seating in line with the Bush Welcome, providing a warm and friendly community focussed service.
  • welcome patrons, check ticket stubs, usher patrons to seats and act as the point of contact for enquiries.
  • be trained in food service operations and carry out kitchen duties when required.

The value of equal opportunities runs through the heart of the organisation. Our diverse team and their range of experiences are vital to the Bush’s success, but we still have work to do to make sure that Bush staff represent the communities we serve. We actively encourage people with different backgrounds to join us. We are particularly keen to receive applications from people of colour and disabled people who are currently underrepresented in our team. All disabled candidates who meet the minimum criteria will be invited to interview.

We will be recruiting for Venue Assistant positions over the coming months, and are accepting applications until Monday 13 December 2021.

Successful applicants will be invited to interview and will be asked to complete a paid trial shift with the team. Please note that this position requires working on site.
