Salary: £38,950 to £42,686 dependent on experience

Location: Glenrothes

Eden Scott is delighted to be working with OnFife, an ambitious Public Sector Trust, Fife’s largest cultural organisation who specialise in making jaws drop, hearts warm, eyes light up and imaginations run wild. 

They work with a huge range of partners, artists and creatives and their spaces are some of Fife’s favourite places. They’re built on strong values, and those values make them who they are – Fearless, Inviting, Fair and Exciting. As their organisation continues to grow and develop, they’re committed to keeping the needs of their customers at the forefront of their thinking.

Due to some internal movement a fantastic opportunity has arisen to join their team of Venue Managers, they operate four multifunctional theatre venues across Fife, all with their own unique character and product offering.  

The vacant Venue Manager position is at Rothes Halls in Glenrothes and the well known venue plays host to a vast range of local, national and international shows; world-famous names, popular music acts, and amateur societies have all added to the venue’s history, and helped keep it an important part of local life. The popular library is a regular draw for young families attending Book Bug sessions, students using public access PCs and avid readers looking for that next book by their favourite author.

There’s a constant flow of delegates attending meetings and events and local community groups are busy teaching guitar, karate and plenty more. Their thriving café is a welcoming space for a leisurely cuppa and a natter for groups of friends; when night falls it’s a busy bar serving theatre goers looking forward to singing along to some classic tunes.

As the leader and face of the venue you’ll need to be an excellent communicator working collaboratively with colleagues, embracing an equitable and co-ordinated approach to service delivery and development, demonstrating the vision, empathy, and agility to contribute at the highest level.
