Job Title: Evening Front of House & Facilities Manager

Working For: Pushkin House

Location: London

Salary: £10.35 per hour

Job Details

Pushkin House is the most active independent centre for Russian culture in London, welcoming thousands of people through its doors every year. We have 65 years of history as a gathering-place for everyone with an interest in Russia and Russian culture, from all different viewpoints, in a beautiful old house in the heart of Bloomsbury.

We are looking for a charismatic, resourceful, people-person to join our core team as an Evening Front of House & Facilities Manager.

What we’re looking for

You will be full of energy, with an organised approach, a clear communication style and an understanding of what makes events run smoothly.

You will be a real people-person, able to engage with and relate to people from diverse backgrounds. We need someone equally comfortable discussing their favourite book, as well as navigating people to the cloakrooms.

Day to day, you will be working on the smooth delivery of our cultural programme and helping with any other events that take place in the House with the ability to think on your feet. When the House is quieter, you will be keeping our facilities in check.

You will be motivated by providing a great visitor experience and being the first point of contact for most people coming through our doors and phoning or emailing to inquire about our work.

The ideal candidate will be self-motivated and have the ability of working independently. They will be confident in dealing with volunteers and not feel overwhelmed solving a technical problem under pressure (setting up mics, projectors, presentations). The job involves lifting and moving furniture and equipment, so having a good level of physical fitness (enough to feel comfortable spending a few hours a day setting up/clearing up around events) is essential.
