Back in July we first told you Harry Potter, the Exhibition would be moving to the next stop on the tour to Boston. Now we can report that Museum of Science in Boston, Massachusetts is hiring workers specifically for the traveling exhibition of props and costumes from the Harry Potter films which will open next month on October 25th. However the six positions open require workers to use an authentic British Accent, as the Museum job listing says:

"Six (6) positions must be in the exhibit at all times. The staff in these six positions must have an authentic British accent at all times! Ideal candidates will have some familiarity of the Harry Potter™ films, and work well in direct contact with the general public. The Exhibit Host will work in all six positions, rotating about every hour or so into another position. Again, all six positions must be in place whenever the exhibit is open; an authentic British accent will be used at all times."

"Both full-time (35+ hrs/wk) and part-time (10 to 16 hrs/wk) temporary Exhibit Hosts are needed to provide the necessary coverage in this exhibition. The Museum of Science will be hiring for 20+ total temporary positions.The ideal candidate will have as much schedule flexibility as possible to work mornings, afternoons, and some evenings, on any days of the week and weekends, from mid October 2009 through late February 2010. The exhibit is open every day except Thanksgiving and Christmas."

I think it’s really funny that you have to fake a British accent to work there. Don’t they know that even Dan said all Americans are crap at British accents? But anyway, it would be an amazing job. You’d get to be around the props and talk about Harry Potter day after day all in a British accent…and get paid for it!

If only I could do a British accent, I would definitely apply. Since I can’t, I will have to settle for attending multiple times and telling whoever will listen all I know! ;)

They’re asking for British accents? I’m from Scotland, which is in Britain, yet I doubt they would hire me because of my Scottish (and hence British) accent. I’m sure what they actually mean is an English accent, from England, which is also a seperate country in Britain. Unless they’re willing to hire Scottish, northern Irish and Welsh people too, then they should refer to their desired accent as ENGLISH!
Sorry! I’ll get off my soapbox now :-P
