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

I could do that so easily. You know, being an English Potter fan and that.
Totally jealous of whoever got that job!
hahaha, “authentic british accent”!!! that would be soo funny to hear! No affence to americans, but as whole you usually have pretty lame british accents :P lol
Me too Kirk, me too. Maybe they’ll come to Orlando, that’s where everything else Harry Potter seems to be coming and then at least I can see it.
Oh…I will freely admit, my British accent is terrible! LOL OK…so if one of you wants to stay with me during the exhibit, you can work there! JK! But i am only about 15 minutes from the Boston MOS.
OMG I want to do it! I hope the exhibition comes to New York and asks for the same thing! Talk about a dream job! I always speak in a British accent anyway just for the fun of it. XD I’ve never had a dream in an American accent, actually. HP has made me think in a British accent. I want them to come to NY next summer, I need a summer job anyway. I would pay to work for that!
“an authentic British accent at all times!!” :D I’m sorry, that just made me laugh so much! But, then again, I can understand it..it is all about presenting the Harry Potter exhibition in the best way possible, right? Good luck to those who get the job!! And remember.. “an authentic British accent is to be used at all times!!” :D
It took me a while to understand the British accent. There were lots of parts I missed and head to rewind to understand when I first started watching HP movies. But it didn’t take long. For years now, even when I watch a new movie, I can understand it all perfectly well.
