Maids & Butlers

Are you interested in experiencing J-Popcon from another angle?

If you want to apply as maid or butler for J-Popcon, you do this through our staff system, where you choose "maid" or "butler". The sign-up is not open yet.

The Maid Café are looking for forthcoming maids and butlers, who want to be a part of J-Popcon’s most versatile and extraordinary team.

In the Maid Café, you will among other things be:

  • Serving a selection of cake and beverages.
  • Socialising with our guests 
  • Taking care of tidying and cleaning of the café.

This year, we have four different shift types that you can freely choose between, but you are not bound by what you choose in your application:

  • Kitchen shift: You tasks consist, among other things, of brewing tea and coffee as well as putting cakes on the plates and keeping the kitchen nice and tidy.
  • Door shift: Here, your most important tasks are welcoming and saying goodbye to the guests nicely as well as being able of keeping good track of everything. Both of reservations, but also of distributing the guests evenly between your colleagues on the floor.
  • Service shift: Here, your tasks are taking and delivering orders to the kitchen, socialising a bit, while the guests wait for the order, as well as making food magic and cleaning off, when the guests have said goodbye again.
  • Table shift: As something new this year, we are introducing this new kind of service shift. Here, after the guests' request, you will sit with our guests and socialise, perhaps play a few easy boardgames. Besides this, you will have the same tasks as the service shift.

We have entire uniforms available for maids, but we expect butlers to bring their uniforms themselves. In addition to that, they will be given a tie to borrow.

What we expect of you:

  • You have turned 18 before the beginning of the convention.
  • That you can have shifts for a minimum of 10 hours during the weekend.
  • That you are helpful and responsible as well as have a positive attitude towards making J-Popcon an amazing experience for everyone.
  • We expect that you can provide a clean statement of no previous convictions in respect of children, which we will obtain in collaboration with you.
  • That you pay a deposit of 250 DKK, which will be paid back directly after the convention. (We're doing this to avoid issues with registered maids and butlers not showing up for their shifts.)

You are not accepted as a maid or butler until the deposit and the statement of no previous convictions in respect of children are approved. 

We in the Maid Café bring giving the best service to the individual guests into great focus, where there's also room for socialising and smalltalk. Because of this, we also expect that you're dedicated and willing to do the chores you're given and that everything is done with a smile. 

We would also greatly appreciate that all butlers and maids dress up nicely to ensure that we can be most forthcoming towards the guests. 

What you get for being a maid/butler:

  • Free admission to the entire convention.
  • Free sleeping facilities.
  • A free lunch Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
  • Access to the Staff Lounge.
  • This year's T-shirt for all eternity. (The same as the gopher T-shirt).
  • Free coffee and tea.
