Birmingham’s famous Frankfurt Christmas Market is set to return for its 22nd year in the city - and staff and musicians are needed.
The city’s popular Christmas Market will once again bring some festive cheer back to the city centre in the run up to Christmas, with stalls selling a tempting array of food and drink, traditional toys, ornaments and gifts.
The market will open on Thursday 3 November 2022, bringing with it the festive aroma of hot gluhwein, schnitzel and spicy sausage, which will fill New Street and Victoria Square for seven weeks.
The event’s organisers – Frankfurt Christmas Market Ltd – are looking to fill a range of customer-facing and behind the scenes roles ranging from bar staff, catering assistants and salespeople on gift stalls, to kitchen assistants and porters.
There is a mix of part-time and full-time roles working alongside the German stallholders and their core team of staff, with hourly rates starting at £10 per hour.
New open mic sessions
New for 2022 will be Monday ‘open mic’ sessions between 5pm and 7pm to give young, up and coming performers and musicians in the city a chance to showcase their talents – with the best two acts performing in a primetime December slot.
The market’s community music programme will also feature choirs from local schools, charity and community groups between 10am and 12pm on Saturdays and Sundays.
How can I apply?
Applications for all vacancies are now open on the market’s official website, here.
Interviews will take place on a rolling basis and continue in the run up until the market opens on 3 November 2022.
Organisers are also reinstating the community group performances to the Victoria Square bandstand when the Frankfurt Christmas Market returns this year.
