The Sherlock Holmes Museum.


Friendly Museum Staff wanted - Front Office Staff, Tour Guides and Retail Sales positions.   with exciting career prospects. Charity workers who need to earn extra money are also welcome.

The Sherlock Holmes Museum is a popular London attraction with international visitors from all over the world who share an interest in the "Life and Times of Sherlock Holmes".

We are a quirky crowd of people who love to have fun and applicants should have an interest in the late Victorian period, be out-going and friendly and must have well-spoken English. You will be required to meet and greet people at the house (mainly overseas tourists) and to be in attendance to answer any queries. We also have a large heritage gift shop on the ground floor where you will also assist with the selling of memorabilia to the Museum visitors; and we have a library where visitors can put their feet up and read a book (silence please!).

If you have creative ideas, so much the better!  A costume consisting of a long black dress and white apron is provided to our younger female employees in keeping with the Victorian period and men wear a waistcoat and cravat. Senior staff wear ordinary clothing. If you are at least 6' tall you could play the part of our Victorian policeman. Why not give it a go? You only live once.

You do not need acting skills for this work, but only the ability to get on with people in a friendly way.

Working at the museum is fun - all you need is enthusiasm, charisma and sometimes diplomacy!

For character positions you would need to have a specific look for 'Mrs Hudson', a 'Victorian Maid', 'Victorian Policeman' of "English Butler.'  

We offer part-time or full-time work.
