Becoming a chat host will require you keeping an eye out on all your favourite bingo sites. It isn’t usual for them to put vacancies online and therefore it will be down to you, to ask each bingo site individually and see if they have any vacancies or hours to spare for you to take some side/full responsibility. We always suggest new bingo sites are the place to first start out, as they will be very much on the beginning processes of getting their pieces together, and chat hosts are very much more of an easier find there.
A great thing to try out, is by leaving your CV with the sites themselves. You will be then within a waiting list and therefore probably not find anything that quickly-yet you will be considered at some point, it is just a case of waiting your turn and letting the vacancies keep coming around again. You will usually receive a call to confirm your compatibility and that will entail a phone interview or a physical face to face one, depending on the location of the bingo sites headquarters etc. The process is usually short and not long winded, so you will find out fairy quickly if the bingo site finds you as the right fit for the bingo community that they have built.
