London Tourist Attraction requires Staff with Personality

A landmark London tourist attraction is looking to increase its pool of casual workers for ad-hoc daytime work throughout the year. The world famous attraction which is open 7 days a week has good transport links in and around the City of London and attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors a year.

The Role

Informative, Engaging, Enthusiastic and Consistent

This rewarding role involves attracting even more visitors to come inside and experience everything this attraction has to offer. You will be part of a small diverse team giving information to members of the public about the attraction and the surrounding area but most importantly – enticing visitors from all over the world into the attraction itself as a ‘must see’ icon in London.

Working as part of the team you will spend a lot of time outside engaging with the public. You will be given a distinctive uniform and may also be located in busy areas close by to the attraction at tube and rail stations. Additional duties will include welcoming and directing visitors though the attraction and answering basic questions about the history of the building and its facilities.

The key purpose of the role is to ensure that as many people as possible get the chance to visit the attraction and potential visitors are aware of what we have to offer; you therefore need to be comfortable in proactively approaching and engaging members of the public.

You will need to be:

  • Engaging and Enthusiastic
  • Have clear spoken English (another language beneficial but not essential)
  • Confident talking to the public individually or in groups
  • Comfortable working outdoors in different types of weather
  • Good general fitness
  • Flexible and reliable

Training and basic uniform will be provided and payment will be GBP 10.93 p/h weekly in arrears. There is no guarantee of regular work.

NB – if you are asked to attend a selection day you will be required to provide Photographic ID in the form of a legal government document – i.e. passport. This will be checked by staff trained by City of London Police upon arrival. Failure to provide this will result in non-admission to the selection day.

If you are successful at the first stage you will also be required to provide proof of your right to work in the UK and proof of address at a later date.

The closing date for this position is Friday 2 March 2018 at 12 noon.

Selection Day will be held on Tuesday 6 March 2018 at 11 am.
