Job description | Application and Equal Opportunities Form


We are always looking for lively folks to join our team. Are you an enthusiastic, committed and reliable individual who is willing to work early mornings and lots of weekends with a big smile and a friendly face?

Our Ushers are a small team of busy bees who cover all Front of House responsibilities from ripping tickets, selling ices, giving backstage tours to watering the plants. Our Unicornershop Assistants are a dedicated team who run our small theatre shop and cafe. Located in the foyer, the Unicornershop is our one-stop destination for hand-picked and ethically sourced food, toys and books, all at pocket money prices. We also offer a range of items and packages online – take a look here. 

Every season at the Unicorn promises to be a lot of fun and a lot of hard work. With up to five shows a day in three separate spaces your ability to keep calm under pressure will be tested! We need you to be a team player with excellent interpersonal skills and a passion for young people and their enjoyment.

You need to be committed to providing the highest level of customer service to all our visitors both the children and their grown-ups. Previous usher, cafe and shop work is desirable but not essential; however to apply for a Unicornershop Assistant position you must have cash-handling experience and be at least 18-years-old.

How to apply: If you would like to apply for either role, and feel you have the skills we are looking for, please send a covering letter and CV to or by post to Front of House Manager, Unicorn Theatre, 147 Tooley Street, SE1 2HZ and we will be in touch very soon.
