We're looking for someone with a passion for hospitality and cinema to fill a permanent full-time position (35-40 hours per week) at our cinema in Petone. 

This position would suit someone who prides themselves on delivering exceptional customer service, can make a great coffee, and loves film. 


Start date is flexible, so this may suit someone wrapping up their studies who can begin part-time, and move into a full-time position from October. 

Hours will be worked across a 7 day roster - between 8am and midnight - and are usually a mix of opening and closing shifts.     


For this position you'll need to hold an LCQ and manager's certificate, but we'll provide training for the right candidate.

To obtain a manager's certificate you will need to be 20+ years of age, with 3 months experience in a licenced premise and have a clean criminal record. 


Supervisors monitor digital projection (training provided), lead a small team and are there to ensure everything on shift runs smoothly. 



Key qualities sought:


  • LCQ or Managers Certificate is advantageous, though we will provide training for the right applicant
  • Previous hospitality experience
  • An eager and fast learner
  • Willing to go the extra mile
  • Positive and friendly nature
  • Barista experience is a bonus
  • Ability to monitor digital projection (training provided) 


Experience working in a customer service position is preferred and you must:


  • Have an interest in film – staff are encouraged to watch the films and read reviews
  • Provide excellent customer service
  • Have great communication and organisational skills
