Rate of pay: £11.10 p/h (up to 7 hours a week – ie. one shift a week)

Contract: Part time role (Permanent)

Purpose of job: As a one-screen cinema the success of our film screenings relies on the smooth running of our daily film schedule and the welcoming nature of our cinema.

You may not have worked in a cinema before, or in an organisation like The UPP. Perhaps you have worked in a public venue or attraction, conference or events department at a university or within a company – which are very transferable contexts. If you are from a background that is underrepresented in the culture sector (for example you are from a community that experiences racism or you are a person with a disability, or you did not go to University or had free school meals as a child), and you would like support to articulate how your experience is transferable to this role, you can book time with us (we will ensure the person you meet is not involved in the recruitment process). They would be pleased to help you think this through. Please request this by emailing Tom Jowett, tom@uppcinema.com, we will not ask you to disclose your background.


If you are interested in applying for this position you will find the job description, letter and the extra information below, read these and then download the application form here which should be emailed to kit@uppcinema.com

Upon receiving your application you will be asked to complete an anonymous online equal opportunities monitoring form. Please note we do not accept CVs.
