I joined Southbank Centre as a Visitor Experience Host in 2008, with the aim of working for a month or so as a summer job, whilst I was at college. I was told about the job from a friend who was also working as a Host at Southbank Centre. A month soon turned into eight years, working throughout university as a Host, and then moving to Development in 2015.
There is no such thing as a typical day at Southbank Centre. Our artistic offering is so diverse that you never know what might come up. As a result, the people we engage with on a day to day basis are also diverse.
It’s a beautiful destination. So many people travel from far and wide to spend a day here, but we get paid to be here. And there are endless numbers of opportunities to enjoy what’s here – from staff tickets to discounts in the restaurants.
As I have got more and more confident in my role, my team have encouraged me to take more and more ownership of my work. With the support of my team, I have been given the freedom to make my role my own.
Definitely go for it! No matter what you are into, there will definitely be something at Southbank Centre that you love.
