Hill made his Broadway debut in Marie Jones' Stones in His Pockets.

Hill played German professor Max Staefel in a 2002 television adaptation of Goodbye, Mr Chips (2002). He played "Mum" to Peter Kay's character "Geraldine McQueen" in Peter Kay's Britain's Got the Pop Factor... and Possibly a New Celebrity Jesus Christ Soapstar Superstar Strictly on Ice, a spoof on the talent show genre of programmes.

Since April 2011, he has appeared as Lord Varys in the television series Game of Thrones, based on the novel series A Song of Ice and Fire by George R. R. Martin. Martin hinted, in a February 2013 post on his website, that he thought Hill would be a good choice to play the title character in a TV show based on Martin's science fiction novel Tuf Voyaging.
