Box Office Assistant
This is a full-time position on a temporary contract. This seasonal employment contract will run from September 2018 to mid-January 2019, with the potential to extend to an annual contract.
You are the first point of contact for our customers, who are the most important people in our business. You will be selling tickets for a wide range of events both over the phone and in person. These tickets might be for a birthday present, anniversary, date night, catch up with old school friends. It could be a fan going to see the band that he or she has listened to for years, whose songs really mean something to them. It could be parents bringing their child to see Santa for the very first time. Whatever the reason, it’s a big deal for the customer so it’s a VERY big deal for us.

- Managing seating plans, extraordinary bookings and VIP tickets.
- Dealing with customer ticketing queries.
- Other general duties including cleaning the box office, maintaining information and display material at the front of house and in the box office area.
- Assisting the marketing department when required.
Desired qualifications, skills and experience:
- Fluent written and spoken English. Other languages are considered an advantage.
- Excellent computer skills including email, excel and word.
