The Gilded Balloon, one of Edinburgh’s big four venues, which this year celebrates 75 years on the scene, is looking for more than a hundred staff for the summer.

Gilded Balloon is a living wage and equal opportunity employer looking for people who love the arts and can work under pressure in a buzzy atmosphere. Taking on a short term Festival-length contract is rewarded with free passes to shows, networking opportunities and discounts on food and drink.
