Box Office Team at Southbank Festivals
You’ll be working as part of our box office team and reporting to our Box Office Managers. Previous experience is not essential, but you must be a good communicator, extremely friendly and be able to stay calm in sometimes busy and difficult situations.
You will be working on two box office systems - Tessitura and VIA - and experience of either of these systems would be desirable but not essential. You will have had experience handling cash.
As the box office system is computerised, you should be able to work a computer without feeling the need to jump out of a window, though detailed computer literacy is not essential.
You must have excellent customer service skills and be able to keep your cool under pressure. You should also have a keen interest in our programme and the shows we put on, whether it be comedy, theatre or music in the Udderbelly or circus, cabaret or burlesque in London Wonderground. We're looking for people that enjoy working in small teams but are also confident, independent workers. You'll enjoy talking about our shows and be happy upselling and recommending shows. Any previous experience in sales would be an advantage.
We're looking for some full time staff and some that would be happy just working evenings and weekends.
