Ushers and Front of House staff
Want to work in theatre?
The ASB Waterfront Theatre is Auckland’s newest, most exciting live venue. We are looking to welcome new ushers into our front of house team in preparation for the Auckland Arts Festival in March 2019, with the possibility of joining the core team for our year-round programme.
Our ushers are the face of the ASB Waterfront Theatre, and therefore need to have the ability to communicate confidently and effectively with people from all walks of life, while also being approachable, professional and well-presented.
Reliability, a proactive approach to problem solving, punctuality and the ability to follow instructions under pressure are also highly valued.
Previous experience of ushering or working with an awareness of health & safety is useful but not a requirement as full training will be provided. Shifts are predominantly in the evenings and weekends.
Applicants must be 18 years old or older and have the right to work in New Zealand.
To apply, please send your CV and a brief cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org or you can drop it off in person to the ASB Waterfront Theatre at 138 Halsey Street, Wynyard Quarter (note: we are closed from 4pm Fri 21 Dec 2018 – 9am 7 Jan 2019). Applications must be received by midnight, Wed 16 January 2019.
Group interviews will take place on Wednesday 23 January.
Successful candidates will also need to be available for essential training on Wednesday 30 January from 5pm.
Training and standard shifts will begin from 7 February with the beginning of Auckland Theatre Company's 2019 season.
