Business Manager

Aldeburgh Cinema


Salary: Competitive

Aldeburgh Cinema is a much-loved, independent cinema which has been at the heart of the community since 1919. It offers a rich programme of mainstream and world cinema screenings, live transmissions and special events in two screens. It is also increasingly well-known for its annual Documentary Festival (now in its twenty-fourth year). Aldeburgh Cinema is run by a charitable trust, managed by a Board of Trustees and has a substantial Friends’ scheme, providing essential community support.

As we head towards our centenary, we have exciting and ambitious plans to strengthen the Cinema and widen its audience. This will include developing innovative local partnerships in our very active community and working in new ways to attract young people to films and film-making. We are now looking for an experienced, energetic Business Manager to oversee the operations of the Cinema and to help us bring this future to life.

Working with the Content Manager who is responsible for the selection, marketing and screening of the Cinema’s programme, the Business Manager is a key member of our small team responsible for delivering all administrative, financial and business-related operations, supported by a Front of House Supervisor, Finance Assistant, and Friends & Visitor Information Co-ordinator. Strong organisational abilities are essential together with a “can do” attitude and great people skills. Previous experience in a customer-facing and /or community engagement role is important, and you will be a confident user of IT and social media. Some experience of financial accounting software would also be helpful.

We are looking for someone who is genuinely interested in film/the arts and who can make an enthusiastic contribution to the continuing success of this wonderful cinema.

Further particulars are available from our HR Trustee or you can apply direct to her with a short statement of why you are interested in the post.
