We are seeking a Front of House Assistant to bring their experience and enthusiasm to ensure a positive first experience of CFCCA for our weekend visitors. Working Saturdays, the candidate will maintain excellent visitor services through supporting the Volunteer Project Coordinator and front of house volunteer team to carry out reception duties, including meeting and greeting visitors, answering telephone calls and responding to enquiries. The role will also support the Operations team to ensure CFCCA’s venue is clean, safe and welcoming for audiences, artists, contractors and staff.
