About You

You’ll ideally come from a visitor/customer service background, but it’ll be your enthusiasm for helping others and devotion to customer care that makes you really stand out. Naturally good with people, you’ll be able to put customers of all ages and backgrounds at ease, whilst helping to promote the venue, its activities and events. Your passion for history, culture and community engagement will be apparent. You will be organised, efficient and thrive on variety. It goes without saying you’ll need excellent numeracy, literacy and communication skills, but you’ll also need excellent administration skills, and the processes involved with ensuring the security and operation of the venue.
