A dynamic role within Guest Services - the department responsible for organising guest's travel, accommodation and schedules - you will be vital a link between behind-the-scenes office based staff in the Filmhouse and the front line welcome desk in the Festival Delegate Centre.
Your duties will vary from day to day, and hour to hour ... you're likely to help delivering messages and information, meeting and greeting guests, briefing guests on the Festival and their schedule, helping guests to find their way between venues, and generally helping to ensure our guest services run as smoothly as possible.
You'll be confident, able to use your own initiative and great at responding quickly to changing priorities. A great memory for names and faces will be really helpful in this role. As you can spend lengthy periods of one on one time with visiting filmmakers a knowledge of or enthusiasm for film is important.
Prior the Festival you'll be assisting during office hours, but during the Festival fortnight, duties can take place between 11am through to the early hours of the morning. You'll be on duty for 5-7 hours each day but this can be spread across the day so the ability to work flexibly, coming and going as tasks require, is essential.
