Regular Help

Are you a people person who enjoys the buzz of a live event? If so why not join our friendly team of event ushers who play an integral role at MK Gallery by welcoming and orienting visitors at our live events. Most events take place in The Sky Room auditorium which offers stunning views over Campbell Park and beyond while bringing the best contemporary film, music, performance, thought provoking lectures and a range of comedy nights to the city centre.  

What's involved?

  • Welcome guests to the events space, check tickets, guide visitors to their seats and provide directions to our facilities
  • Maintain up to date knowledge of our events programme in order to answer visitor enquiries
  • Help set up, pack away and tidy up after events and activities 
  • At quieter moments make a difference to a visitor’s experience by asking them what they thought of the show or by recommending upcoming events.
  • Manage difficult situations such as complaints and late arrivals, liaising with the Duty Manager when necessary. 
  • In the event of an emergency support the Fire Wardens with evacuation of the building
  • Ensure that health and safety is maintained at all times
