Jobs at the glee clubs
Looking for jobs? Why do a boring job when you can work at the UK’s best comedy and live music venues?! Here are our current vacancies.
Glasgow Venue Manager
Job Title – Venue Manager
Location: Glasgow City Centre
To start: 2 January 2019
The Glee Clubs are unquestionably the leading group of small to medium sized comedy and music venues in the UK, now established for 24 years. As operators as well as promoters, our full-service clubs comprise revenues from ticket sales, food, drinks and hires, and range in sales from £1m to £1.7m per venue. We pride ourselves on having great shows and excellent customer service as well looking after our artists and venue users brilliantly.
An experienced 'manager-promoter' is now sought for the Glee Club’s latest new venue – Glasgow – which opens officially on 1 Feb 2019.
The candidate must be a fully rounded personal license holder and an experienced manager or deputy manager within the hospitality sphere.
Experience particularly sought in:
- Food & drinks
- Live entertainment
- Local promotion
To say you need to be a confident self-starter capable of taking complete responsibility would be an under-statement! You will have staff, customers and artists to look after every night, often simultaneously and under pressure.
This is a new venue for us and because it will initially only be open on Fridays and Saturdays, it will take time but we hope to build this club up to being open over 200 nights per year. Your initial remit will firstly involve the recruitment, training and onboarding of your entire team of part-time bar, floor, kitchen and tech staff, as well as lots of hands-on local promotion, and contributing to marketing and promotion initiatives throughout the group. Only later on the job will become more venue management orientated. You will be able (and expected) to travel to our other venues to see and learn how we do things at The Glee.
Salary commensurate with experience.
Please send a CV and covering letter via email to email@example.com – if you dare!
Bar team jobs
The Glee Club bars are a fast-paced working environment and we’re often looking for experienced bartenders to join our Bar Teams in Birmingham, Cardiff and Nottingham. Because our service is based on an interval model for most shows it is essential that candidates can show that they have experience in a comparable fast-paced, high-volume environment.
Friday and Saturday night availability is essential.
Starting rate £8 per hour. In addition, we offer a unique bonus scheme that can see the hourly rate rise to either £8.75, £9.50 or £10.25 depending on productivity for the night.
Floor team jobs
Great service is a massive part of The Glee Club experience, and at the very core of this are our Floor Teams. Waiting and/or ushering experience is preferable but not essential. All candidates must, however, be able to show that they can provide outstanding service in a hospitality or retail environment and have the personality and charisma to greet our customers the Glee way.
Positions are available periodically in Birmingham, Cardiff and Nottingham.
Friday and Saturday night availability is essential. Please note that this role requires lifting and moving of furniture.
Starting rate £8 per hour.
BENEFITS OF WORKING AT A GLEE
You get to see plenty of top comedy, music and entertainment whilst getting paid (some comedy names you will see on stage now started out in jobs behind our bars or on our floors!).
You need to be 18+ to work with us, but the good news is, we believe you should be paid the rate of £8 p/h, even if you are under 25 (unless position is salaried). Starting rate £8 per hour. We also offer a unique bonus scheme that can see the hourly rate rise to either £8.75, £9.50 or £10.25 depending on productivity for the night.
Many recognisable names pass through our doors, some of which you may well get to meet.
We pride ourselves on having friendly, helpful staff, so you will be working as part of a great team.
