Marketing and Business Development Manager

The Lexi Cinema


Salary: £27,000 to £30,000

The Lexi Cinema is seeking an experienced, creative and enthusiastic marketing professional with a passion for audience development and a firm commercial focus on driving venue hire and increasing occupancy.

This is a new senior role, created at an exciting time of expansion and new ambition for the Lexi, as we launch our new Lexi Hub building which will house a second screen and allow our existing community projects to flourish. As we open the Hub you will lead on developing our brand – building on 12 years of being a fantastic community cinema and following a two-year fundraising campaign. You will also lead on the development of our new website.

This position will require you to work closely with the Cinema and Programme Director, to promote our film programme and support audience development. This is a hands-on role covering everything from writing our weekly newsletter to representing us at industry events. Your KPIs will be increased cinema occupancy, increased venue hire, and securing new sponsorship for the cinema.

As Lexi Marketing Manager, you will be responsible for developing and delivering the marketing strategy for our film programme and the Lexi Hub outreach, delivering innovative campaigns for a varied slate of film events. You will manage the Lexi marketing budget and have great communication skills which you can apply to all facets of the role. You will be highly cine-literate and have a great working knowledge of the exhibition and distribution sector.

All Lexi core team staff are also trained in digital projection and run two-three evening shifts a month as duty managers, as required.

We’re very keen to work with people from a range of backgrounds and lived experiences, and we encourage people from under-represented backgrounds – socio-economically diverse, D/deaf and disabled, Black, Asian and minority ethnicities, LGBTQIA+ – to apply.
