Vacancy: Visitor Welcome Team

We're looking for people to join our Visitor Welcome Team on a casual basis

Are you looking for a job where no two days are the same? Do you love chatting about art? Can you make a mean coffee?

We’re always happy to hear from people if you’re interested in joining our Visitor Welcome Team. This would be a casual contract and you can apply anytime.

You’ll be required to provide an excellent visitor experience through the effective running of The Art House’s Front of House areas including our Welcome Desk, Coffee House and Shop. As one of the first faces that our customers meet, you will be warm and engaging, have great attention to detail, and play an essential role in making people feel welcomed and taken care of while they’re here.

The hours may include weekdays, evenings, and weekends. There is scope for the hours to increase in the future if you’d be interested.

The Art House is an Equal Opportunity employer and the ethos of inclusivity, respect, and compassion for each other and our community runs through everything we do. We know that creativity matters in a diverse world, and you will know that too.

We pay Real Living Wage, provide a Cycle to Work Scheme and a Staff Wellbeing programme. We are also fun, bring our dogs to work and no two days are ever the same. We think you’d enjoy it here.

Think you fit the bill? Then what are you waiting for?
