Visitor Services Assistant - North London


Alexandra Palace is the iconic north London venue that offers everything you need for an extraordinary event or great day out with the benefit of some of the best panoramic views of London. Ally Pally, as it is lovingly known, hosts exhibitions, live music, live sport and corporate events throughout the year.

It is an exciting time to join us as we have just completed extensive restoration work to bring the Victorian Theatre back to life. The restoration process has breathed new life into a space that has been hidden for over 80 years. Preserved in a beautiful state of arrested decay and frozen in time, the complex work has created a space that retains the charm and character of the theatre while being fit to host contemporary productions.


The Visitor Service Assistants are primarily based within the East Court and support front of house operations within the Victorian Theatre and assist with the wider event programme, specifically covering information points during live music, sport, exhibitions, and park events. The Visitor Service Assistants also provide cover for the Ice Rink Reception as and when required.

The ideal candidate will have experience dealing with customers face to face along with strong verbal communication skills. Prior box office or front of house experience is advantageous along with knowledge of Alexandra Park and Palace events and operations.

Alexandra Palace East Court is open to the public daily from 09:00 to 17:00, 7 days a week. Shifts usually start at 08:45 and end at 17:15. Morning, afternoon and day shifts are available.

On event days the Visitor Services team will work across all areas of the building and start and finish times are dependent on the event calendar. This may include some late night working during concerts and theatre productions.

Alexandra Palace Ice Rink is open to the public daily. Start and finish times depend on the needs of the business but early morning (07:00 start), day (09:00 start) and evening (15:00 start) shifts are available.

We currently have casual work available whereby work is offered on an as and when needed basis however there are a number of shifts available weekly in line with our public events programme.

The hourly rate is £10.85
