Panmure House Ambassador

Looking for a flexible part-time role while you are studying? The Panmure House Ambassador team might be for you. Ambassador roles can be varied but include ticketing and sales during Fringe shows, serving drinks at the bar, basic cleaning and tidying pre and post events, queue management and welcoming guests and VIPs. All of this within the historic Panmure House, the last home of the Enlightenment philosopher and economist Adam Smith. Located behind the Royal Mile and close to the Palace of Holyrood house and the Scottish Parliament, this building is not normally accessible to the public.
