Here, we advertise available positions that may arise in our cinemas or head office. All applications require submission of a current CV. Please note that while cinemas may hold CV's for front of house positions, we do not accept speculative applications for cinema managers or technicians.

 

Our Roles

Cinema Managers are responsible for the complete operation of a cinema. No two days are ever the same, and it's your responsibility to make sure each and every customer has the best possible experience, as well as making sure your cinema operates safely and in compliance with all head office and local authority requirements. You will have the opportunity to undertake off-site training before you take up your post, and we offer competitive salaries.

Apprenticeships

The cinema industry — like any other — relies on the talent and capabilities of all who work within in it.
