Big Picture Show Screening Managers

Freelance contract (part-time), own transport essential

£/hour + mileage allowance (call for information)

Live & Local is recruiting a pool of screening managers to transport and set up our portable screening equipment and manage screening events for our rural cinema scheme – BIG PICTURE SHOW - delivered in partnership with community groups. Applicants should be able to demonstrate appropriate technical skills as well as effective and confident communication skills in liaising with voluntary local groups and managing screening events.

Engagements will be mostly evenings and weekends and managers will generally be responsible for transporting our equipment in their own vehicles.

In the first instance we are interested in people who can service our Warwickshire network. However we are now expanding our network into Staffordshire so would like to hear from people who can cover either or both counties.
