Friendly Museum Staff wanted - Tour Guides - Retail Sales Manager/ess - Personal Assistant to the Curator - Retail jobs in London for graduates or mature staff looking for exciting career prospects. Charity workers who need to earn some money also welcome!

The Sherlock Holmes Museum is a popular London attraction with an international clientelle from all walks of life who share a common interest in the "Life and Times of Sherlock Holmes".

We are a quirky crowd of people who love to have fun and applicants should have an interest in the late Victorian period, be out-going and friendly and must have well-spoken English. You will be required to meet and greet people at the house (mainly overseas tourists) and to be in attendance to answer any queries. We also have a large heritage gift shop on the ground floor where you will be needed to assist with the selling of memorabilia to the Museum visitors and we have a library where visitors can put their feet up and read a book (silence please!).

If you have creative ideas and the ability to speak to the media on the Museum's behalf, so much the better!  A costume consisting of a long blue dress and white apron is provided to our younger female employees in keeping with the Victorian period and men wear a waistcoat and cravat. Senior staff wear ordinary clothing.

There are many groups visiting the Museum consisting of 30 or more young people, so you will need to be able to organise these groups and if necessary plan events for them.

It's a fun and versatile job requiring charisma and sometimes diplomacy!

These are character positions so you would need to have a specific look for 'Mrs Hudson', a 'Victorian Maid', 'Victorian Policeman' of "English Butler.'  

There is the option to work part-time or full-time. Apply to work a paid trial day or paid week's trial and see what you think! - YES YOU CAN!

Please email your CV as a Word document + JPG PHOTO. Please state when you can start work, the days of the week you are available and let us know your ambition.
