The House and Events Supervisor’s role is to look after Burgh House & Hampstead Museum during out-of-hours events such as local society meetings, private views, talks and classical concerts, usually held on weekday and Sunday evenings as well as occasional private functions including weddings.  They may also be required to open the House to the public at weekends. House Supervisors are key-holders, responsible for the security of the building including setting and un-setting the alarms, and ensuring that events run smoothly.  On occasion they may also be asked to provide office support.

Over 75% of Burgh House’s funding is derived from hire.  The main job of the House Supervisor is to provide a competent, professional and welcoming service to our clients as well as look after the welfare of our 300-year-old building.
