24hrs per week contracted - with overtime available during busy periods - £11.50 per hour
Hexham Abbey Trading manages the commercial operations of the Abbey – including the café, gift shop and suite of function rooms.
Our range of function rooms are hired out for a variety of uses, from wedding receptions, parties, meetings and physical activities/classes. The Abbey itself also hosts numerous events each year, including concerts, large scale services and exhibitions. We are looking for an energetic and ambitious person who isn’t afraid of a challenge, and is happy to work some unsociable hours where needed. This is not a ‘9-5’ role and no two days will be the same!
In the spring through to autumn the work will involve a minimum of two Saturday day and/or evening shifts per month, as one of the main duties of the role will be working on our wedding reception business where events typically take place over the weekend. Outside of live event work, the role will include 2 fixed days per week in the office covering administration and management of our daily room hire operations and preparations for wedding events/parties and celebrations which can be quite intensive and require excellent attention to detail.
We are looking to hire someone who wants to be part of a growing business, and who will hence grow with it.

Working Hours & Benefits
We are always looking for Volunteers who would like to help out here at Hexham Abbey. This could be guiding and stewarding visiting groups, for those with an interest in history who enjoy helping and interacting with people. The Gift Shop and Cafe are also partially staffed with volunteers who simply enjoy keeping busy and giving people a warm welcome as they visit our site.
