Burgh House is a Queen Anne Grade-I listed mansion house set in a beautiful terrace garden and is a registered charity. It is located at the heart of Hampstead Village close to Hampstead Heath.

Event Supervisors are key holders, responsible for the security of the building including setting and un-setting the alarms, and ensuring that events run smoothly.

We are looking for problem solvers with fantastic customer care and an interest in historic, cultural or arts buildings.
