Discover a day in the life of our staff

If you have ever wondered what it might be like to work for The Royal Ballet School, take a look at what some of our staff have to say.

Emily Cordy – Front of House Coordinator

Working on front of house, no day is the same. We work in the ‘here and now’ and can rarely plan how our day will go.

My day will normally start with catching up on my emails. I usually spend a lot of my day answering the phone and dealing with all enquiries that come in. The Front of House team are the first people you see walking into The Royal Ballet School, so we are also responsible for signing in all guests and visitors and making sure they are met by the relevant person.

Each day, we ensure the students are registered in the morning and afternoon. We are also responsible for ordering all of the School’s stationery and other supplies, and ensuring staff are happy by keeping on top of stocks of tea and coffee!

We also assist all departments from across the School with any overflow work they have; from admin tasks to helping organise and run events.

The Front of House team are the first point of call for anything and we are always happy to help.
