Casual Duty Officer
Closing date for applications 10 November 2014
About the job
This is a casual 'as and when required' post.
The London Borough of Hillingdon Arts Service is looking for new recruits to join our team of Duty Officers.
Duty Officers are responsible for managing the public, buildings and assets during events. Based at the Compass Theatre in Ickenham and Manor Farm Site in Ruislip, the role has a strong customer facing element, taking responsibility for the safety and management of audiences. Hours are flexible and can be arranged around the most demanding work or family schedules.
This role includes evening and weekend work.
About the person
This challenging, varied and rewarding position is ideally suited to people with experience in events, security or hospitality looking to supplement their income with casual work. Successful candidates will have excellent verbal communication and customer care skills, high standards of appearance, and an ability to take a supervisory role with volunteer staff who work on our bars and box office. Furthermore, this role will require extensive unsupervised working; therefore an ability to use your own initiative to think and act decisively will be essential.
Postholders will need to be confident in undertaking First Aid and Fire Warden duties, for which training will be provided if there is no previous qualification.
If you wish to be involved in the theatre environment there are voluntarily roles that we offer and more information can be found on our Volunteer Roles page
