Hospo venues are looking for front of house faces. There’s also a bit of creative variety sprinkled in, with fitspo fashion design, social media marketing, and women killing it in law a few of the openings we’ve come across. Read on and see if any of this month’s jobs are your cup of tea (or coffee).


If you’re a South Australian business that’s hiring, let us know.


If the ‘lights’ part of ‘lights, camera, action!’ is your thing, Adelaide Festival Centre has got not one but two vacant spotlights for two full-time lighting technicians.

As they continue to roll out their jam-packed 2024 program across the Festival Theatre, Dunstan Playhouse, Space Theatre and Her Majesty’s Theatre, it’s all hands on deck.

These full-time roles require experience and offer a three-year fixed-term contract, 40 hours a week with a base salary plus overtime and penalties.

Email all enquiries to the head of the lighting department or find more information and application details here.

Applications close 4pm Friday, May 24.

Adelaide Venue Management (AVM) operates the Adelaide Convention Centre, Adelaide Entertainment Centre and Coopers Stadium. Now they are looking for an expert planner and multi-tasker to slot into their exhibition planning services team as exhibitions coordinator.

The role — as the name suggests — requires the coordination of a range of national and international exhibitions, and a large part of this will be overseeing the Cellar Door Fest and its winter counterpart.

Find out more information and apply here.


South Australian hospitality management and consulting company EMBR Hospitality is hiring bartenders and wedding coordinators.

If the company doesn’t sound familiar, they’re the name behind Adelaide hot spots Spread, Dolly, Don’s Deli, Fettle and Bar Lune. Ring any bells?

A point of difference from some of the other jobs available this month: nothing is mentioned about experience needed. That isn’t to say it isn’t a requirement, but you can try your luck.

Hello Sarnie pioneered sando-on-the-go long before the sando trend made its way to Adelaide. Now the locally-owned, fresh daily-packaged sandwich visionaries are looking for FOH staff.

A barista/customer service role is up for grabs, and so is store leader. Both positions are casual, require experience and offer varied hours Monday to Friday.

Find out more information on these roles on their website. To apply, email your resume and cover letter to

Adelaide’s own slice of the city of love is looking for the perfect match for their FOH. French bistro and bar La Louisiane is looking for a full-time duty manager who loves champagne, live jazz and perhaps the occasional snail (not a requirement).

They aren’t too snobby in their selections, but the position does require a valid responsible service of alcohol (RSA) and previous experience in section waiting and cocktail bartending.

If this sounds like your kind of rendezvous you can apply here, or email host Pierre at

Don’t let the title fool you — this isn’t another hospo gig. Local craft brewery Little Bang Brewing Company aren’t on the hunt for any FOH staff, or BOH for that matter.

Instead, they are after a marketing and creative manager to help build the Little Bang brand. If you have a knack for creating engaging content with a creative flare and are familiar with all things online marketing this job might be the brew for you. Just as long as you have experience.

Head here for the specifics and application details.

Longplay Bistro are on the hunt for a full-time duty manager to head up their front of house.

They are looking for someone who knows how to walk the line between fun and professional and can do a mix of lunch and dinner shifts spanning across the week from Wednesday to Sunday.

It’s a salaried position with super and overtime and a flexible start date. Flick them a DM on Instagram to apply.


If you know good coffee and don’t mind close quarters, Gilles Street coffee spot Paddy Barry’s are looking for a barista and FOH guru.

A coffee spot of few words, they have left the gory details of the position out of their Instagram call out; however, experience is necessary.

For extra info on the position, or to apply DM them on Instagram.

A local opportunity for Adelaide fashionistas is available, but this one’s a little more ‘fitspo’ oriented. South Australian fitness brand Ryderwear is after a fashion designer to help create and deliver new collections.

While having a sound understanding of fashion, of course, you need to have a decent understanding of the fitness industry as well. The position is full-time and, like most, requires experience. However, this experience is a little more niche: they want someone with two to five years of fashion design experience specifically within the gym/fitness apparel industry.

If this sounds like you, hop, skip, jump (or whatever it is you do at the gym) over to the application page before they close on May 27.


If you’ve got style and flair and are looking to break into fashion, Serafina could be your big break. The South Australian family-owned women’s fashion brand is on the prowl for an assistant designer.

The position is based at Serafina’s head office in Norwood and they’re looking for someone to start around the beginning of July. It’s full-time for six months while the current assistant designer is on maternity leave, but they are open to contract extensions.

For the full list of requirements, more information and to apply visit the LinkedIn advertisement.


If you’re well versed in legal jargon or passionate about supporting women, the Working Women’s Centre SA have multiple roles up for grabs. They’re looking for a legal assistant, an education and training manager and a principal solicitor.

The Working Women’s Centre specialises in offering legal advice, information and advocacy services. Each role has different requirements, but generally want experience. Head to their Instagram or the following links to find out more information about each role and to apply.

Applications for Principal Solicitor close 12pm May 23.
