The Jane Austen Centre in Bath are recruiting staff for their busy spring and summer seasons. The ideal candidate will be available to start part-time in April and then work increased hours during our peak summer months until after the Jane Austen Festival in September. Shift patterns are flexible and being able to work weekends is preferred.
About the role:
Set in an 18th Century Georgian town house the Jane Austen Centre is one of Bath’s busiest visitor attractions. All our staff wear Regency-period costume and our Guides tell the story of Jane Austen’s life, work, and her time in Bath. Guides take groups of visitors through the Exhibition after delivering an opening presentation talk, and are always on hand to add to the experience.
Our staff are integral to the visitor experience and so excellent people skills and customer-focused service are a must. The ideal candidate will be enthusiastic about ensuring visitors to the city of Bath and the Jane Austen Centre have the best possible time, making the experience both fun and informative. Being comfortable giving clear and consistent talks to groups of up to 30 tourists is essential and having a willingness to adapt the role of a character when ‘on stage’ is preferred.
