Part-time – up to 20 hours per week

Deadline for applications: Friday 8th October
Interviews will take place from Monday 11th October.
We are looking for an experienced marketing executive to join our team as we prepare for the opening of our cinema and then to take care of marketing and sales opportunities once we are operational. This is very much a hands-on/on the ground role rather than a strategic one, and you will be able to get involved in many aspects of the business as we grow. This is an exciting opportunity to help shape something from the ground up, within a growing team.
The successful candidate will need to be able to work independently, plan effectively, set their own deadlines and prioritise their own workload. They will need to embody the company’s brand values and always represent the company in the best possible light.
This is initially a part-time position, and the hours will increase the closer the cinema is to the opening date. There will be a degree of flexibility over the location of the role which will be based partly in cinema, partly off-site meeting partners and attending events, and remote working is also possible. All applicants should be prepared to work some evenings and weekends as required.
