Birmingham German Christmas Market jobs up for grabs

Frankfurt’s famous Birmingham Christmas Market is set to return for its 22nd year in the city – and staff and musicians are needed.

The town’s popular Christmas market will once again bring a festive mood back to the town center as Christmas approaches, with stalls selling a tempting range of food and drink, traditional toys, ornaments and gifts.

The market will open on Thursday November 3, 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 organizers – Frankfurt Christmas Market Ltd – are looking to fill a range of customer-facing and behind-the-scenes roles, from bar staff, catering assistants and salespeople at the gift stalls, to assistants kitchen and porters.

There is a mix of part-time and full-time roles alongside German Merchants and their core team, 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 the city’s up-and-coming young artists and musicians a chance to showcase their talents – with the top two acts performing in a December slot during prime time.

The market’s community music program will also feature local school choirs, charity and community groups between 10 a.m. and 12 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.

How can I apply?

Applications for all vacancies are now open on the official market website, here.

Interviews will take place on a rolling basis and will continue until the market opens on November 3, 2022.

Organizers are also reinstating the community group’s performances at the Bandstand in Victoria Square when the Frankfurt Christmas Market returns this year.
