  • An enthusiastic and passionate attitude with a positive and collaborative approach.

  • Confidence in working with team members of varying levels of seniority.

  • The ability to work and thrive under pressure.

Research shows that men apply to jobs if they meet ~60% of criteria, but women and those in marginalised communities tend to apply only if they check all the boxes.

If you feel you’ve got what it takes but don’t meet all the requirements we’ve listed above, we’d still love to see your application!

We want to make cinema accessible to everyone. We believe people from different backgrounds bring different ideas that foster innovation and engagement, allowing us to attract great people to develop the best experience for our users.
