An exceptional opportunity has arisen to join our Duty Managers team overseeing the Deptford Lounge, a landmark building with excellent educational, cultural and community facilities in Deptford, Southeast London.
Salary: £21,216 p.a. pro-rata
Contract: 4 days per week (average of 29 hours).
Apply by: 25 September
Interview date: 3 October
Based in Deptford, London, the Albany is a pioneering, multi-use performing arts venue with a strong focus on working with diverse communities. The Albany’s programmes and venue management also extend to two external sites, Deptford Lounge and Canada Water Theatre.
The Duty Manager has a lead role in the day-to-day management of the building, its facilities, safety, security, activities and events as well as the coordination of the wider team. So, if you’re looking for a desk job, this isn’t for you – as there’s no such thing as a typical day as Duty Manager at Deptford Lounge. This role is an excellent opportunity for an ambitious, independent thinking candidate pursuing a career in venue and customer service management. It will require a confident individual with strong leadership skills and a background in operational and facilities management as well as solid communication, administrative and coordination skills. Previous experience in a security role would be desirable.
The Albany aims to encourage a culture where people can be themselves and be valued for their strengths and we want our team to represent the same diversity of audiences and artists we welcome into our venues every day. We therefore are keen to hear from a diverse range of candidates from all backgrounds drawing on different perspectives, experience and knowledge. We particularly welcome interest from Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic and disabled candidates to work here. The Albany will offer an interview to anyone with a disability* who meets the essential criteria.
