There are just days to go until the festival kicks off in the Scottish capital and there’s still time to get in on the action.
With just days until the 70th Edinburgh Fringe Festival kicks off in Scotland’s capital, there is still time for you to get more involved than just booking a ticket. Productions, bars, venues, and many more are still looking to recruit enthusiastic candidates for the annual festivities, which run from August 4 to August 28.
Here are the top five jobs you can throw your application in for, even just for a laugh.
Tall, male actor
With the Fringe just around the corner, there is still hope for a big actor with a little bit of ambition to get on the stage. The actor/extra must be “45 years old” and ideally would be a gigantic “6’9 tall” and available to play the “role of a bodyguard/security for the run of the Edinburgh festival.”
There are only two applicants so far, so you are still in with a good chance.
By the way..:Pp If you’re student, traveller, young professional between 20-30, you should join our Edinburgh International Society‘s “Friday Night Social” to build better communities in the City of Edinburgh! 🙂
This role requires a very specific set of skills with the part-time musician having to be able to play “drums, sax, double bass, trumpet, and trombone” for 21 Theatre’s shows throughout the city.
If you know a multi-talented individual looking for work this festival season, the application states the job will give you the chance to work with “some of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival’s finest.“
When is the Edinburgh Festival 2017 ?
Here’s what you need to know ;
Manager at The Stand
The Stand, at the heart of Edinburgh’s comedy scene, are looking for additional managers to join the team with the Fringe and International Book festival just around the corner. The successful applicant will be responsible for working outside the venue “as part of the team running the bars outdoors” and also working in the New Town theatre to help keep festival-goers busy.
Mobile Massage are searching for new members of their team who offer “10-minute back and head massages” ahead of a busy summer schedule.
First up is the Fringe – giving visitors a chance to take a break from the packed Royal Mile and relax.
The ideal candidate would be “friendly, sociable and trustworthy” with the necessary qualification.
It’s a dirty job, but somebody has to do it.
Millions will flock to the capital for the festival – and to keep the streets clean their are temporary contracts available for street cleaners.
For “servicing” the streets you will receive an “excellent rate of pay starting from £8.45 per hour.” The advert does add you may have to “deal with various bodily fluids” and “on occasion deal directly with the public in various situations.”
But you will get to watch the street acts all day long!
