Cinema Managers: notes for applicants
We have relatively low turnover at management level and so opportunities do not arise often. However, when vacancies arise we almost always turn first to the CVs that have been emailed to us and so we encourage you to send in your CV for our consideration.
Cinema managers have to have a wide range of skills including people management, customer service, marketing & promotion, building maintenance, film projection, and food & beverage service. We do, of course, provide in-house training and support in all areas but the more experience you can bring (not necessarily in a cinema or theatre environment) the stronger your chances will be.
We look for people with exceptional organisational skills, flexibility about locations, a readiness to work unsocial hours, ideas about marketing, and a willingness to be completely hands-on. Experience of management is essential and you must, of course, have an interest in film.
Each cinema recruits its own Front of House staff (Front of House Assistants, Supervisors, Duty Managers, Bar and Catering staff). If you are interested in being considered for one of these positions please send your CV to your local cinema (see the "Contact Us" page on your cinema for address details).
Applications for any Cinema Management, Projectionist or Head Office positions can be made by emailing your CV to [email protected]
