Is this job for you?
We’re looking for somebody with good experience of managing box office services. You don’t necessarily have to have worked in a large venue or in a very senior role, but you need to be used to administering all aspects of a ticketing operation end-to-end, and of dealing with an ever- changing variety of different shows and setups.
You need to have experience of ticketing system administration and dealing with promoters and agents and be comfortable being based in the ‘back office’ as this is not a front-of-house box office role (although you’ll also be expected to train and support staff in delivering high quality customer service).
You’ll be a confident and capable communicator, tech savvy with good people skills yet a self- sufficient self-starter. Tangible experience of managing a ticketing operation to drive sales, increase yield and increase venue revenue will be an advantage. You will also have experience of copy writing and creating content.
