Cineworld is to create 30 new jobs in Ely when it opens at the city’s Leisure Village later this year.

Bosses at the six-screen cinema are looking to fill those vacancies by hosting an open day for prospective employees at the Maltings on March 11 from 10am until 5pm.

Roles available include supervisor and team member, both on either a part-time or full-time basis.

Matthew Shaw, Cineworld Ely general manager, said: “I am very excited to be part of this new project and am looking forward to bringing a new multiplex cinema to Ely.

“Cineworld has fantastic career prospects and is a brilliant company to work for. We encourage local people and those with a passion for film to come down to the open day.”

Councillor Ian Lindsay, Mayor and chairman of Ely City Council, said: “This is a hugely exciting time for everyone living in Ely.

“Not only will the opening of Cineworld really improve the entertainment offering, but it is also generating employment for local residents. We can’t wait for the doors to open in May.”
