How to become a cinema or theatre attendant
You can get into this job through:
- an apprenticeship
- applying directly
You may be able to start by doing a customer service practitioner intermediate apprenticeship.
You'll usually need:
- some GCSEs, usually including English and maths, or equivalent, for an intermediate apprenticeship
You can sometimes find voluntary work with community theatres or cinemas. Follow them on social media, look out for local announcements or search on Do IT.
You can apply directly to vacancies advertised by theatres and cinemas. Experience of dealing with the public, for example in retail or hospitality, may give you an advantage though it's not always essential.
An interest in film or the arts would be helpful.
