If you’re interested in a new job engaging directly with the beating heart of Byron, this could be your lucky day.

The Byron Community Centre (BCC) is searching for three new skilled locals to join its team, including a new Manager for the Byron Theatre and a Venue Sales Manager for the Centre as a whole.

The not-for-profit social enterprise is also keen to welcome a volunteer to take on the role of treasurer on the centre’s board.

‘We are seeking a Byron Theatre Manager to oversee a premier theatre for live shows,
events and performances in the heart of Byron Bay,’ a BCC spokesperson said.

‘They will lead a professional, dedicated team, coordinating all theatre logistics and operations while aligning the creative direction and strategic vision for the cultural hub of Byron Bay.’

The new venue manager would manage the sales, marketing and events for every aspect of the entire venue other than Byron Theatre.

‘The BCC venue is made up of rooms and function areas for hire, hosting everything from conferences and workshops to private events and productions all in the heart of Byron Bay,’ the spokesperson said.

‘All profits go back to the BCC and feed into the community programs.’

Managing the finances of the BCC is a crucial, and the treasurer would have an important role in keeping the financial ship sailing in the right direction.

The volunteer role, which requires around 20 hours of dedicated time per month, would involve general financial oversight, financial planning and budgeting, financial reporting and control of fixed assets and stock.

If you feel that this role is for you – or know someone – please contact the President, Paul
Jameson on [email protected] or 0408 866 651.
