State Cinemas is a complex in central Nelson. With 9 auditoriums, Stefano’s Cafe, plus the Suter Theatre at 208 Bridge St.
The role of GM is responsible for the full operation. Managing and rostering a team of approximately 30 staff, maintaining and developing the facilities and equipment, managing supplier relationships and contracts, overseeing promotions and advertising, overseeing financial reporting, reporting monthly to the Board and ensuring that each and every patron has a great cinema experience. Maintaining continuing positive performance with a focus on incremental improvement across all aspects. This is a broad and deep role and no one day is the same.
The ideal candidate will have led and managed a sizeable team in the past and be able to delegate and build strong and collaborative relationships. You will have taken responsibility for a similar operation in the past, possibly in the hospitality sector. You will need to be well organised to juggle the range of responsibilities but be flexible when the need arises and be able to think on your feet. Most importantly, you will love the diversity of the interactions (staff, patrons, suppliers, contractors and advertisers).
The hours are fairly regular and a couple of later evenings to overlap with evening staff are required. There is also an on-call requirement in case of emergencies.
This is a fantastic role for someone wanting to combine the complexity of a general management role with the magic of the movies in an iconic Nelson business.
