ACE and the Southbank Centre


Two ACE participants work as ‘Visitor Experience Hosts’ at the iconic Southbank Centre.

ACE organised a tailored recruitment day in partnership with the Southbank Centre, a London living wage employer that delivers an internationally acclaimed programme of arts and culture. It was really special for participants to tour the Royal Festival Hall building including the 2,500 capacity auditorium and The Clore Ballroom. The following group scenario and interviews put participants through their paces and two individuals shone though. The front of house role will involve providing excellent customer service and will be an exciting experience for both participants who were previously unemployed.

ACE is funded by BBO. Building Better Opportunities brings together funding from the Big Lottery Fund and the European Social Fund (ESF) to help tackle poverty and promote social inclusion across
