The Exchange is a well-established arts and community centre in Sturminster Newton, Dorset, based in state of the art, purpose built accommodation. With a calendar bursting with live music performances, film, theatrical and literary offerings, we also have a variety of function rooms available for hire, an art gallery and a very popular café. We are home to a number of community groups and a thriving Learning Centre.
We are now looking for someone very special to join us as our General Manager to guide us through the next part of what has been a very exciting journey so far. Could you be that special person?
You will need experience of managing and leading employees as well as volunteers and ideally will have worked or volunteered in the Community or Charity sectors. Strong management skills will be essential of course as will plenty of drive, determination and commitment. As The Exchange is open Mondays to Saturdays from 8.30am until very late on the nights we have live performances, the person we’re looking for will have to be happy working late nights sometimes and will need their own transport. Knowledge of the performing arts sector would be very useful but is not essential.
We can promise you that there will never be a dull moment in this full-on and exciting role. You will be responsible for the commercial success of The Exchange with involvement in programme planning and marketing, management of the café, room hire and finances.
