Working at the Brewery

The Brewery Arts Centre is a dynamic hub for visual and performing arts in Kendal and the surrounding areas, and we are often on the look-out for new members to join our close-knit team.  Due to the wide range of roles, we have people on a variety of different contracts from full time staff to flexible casual workers as well as unpaid volunteers.  A strong staff team is essential for the success and future of the centre in delivering the artistic programme, events, functions and catering facilities.  All our roles are demanding and we need people who are willing to work hard to ensure our customer’s expectations are exceeded.

We welcome applications from everyone and value diversity in our workforce.  Our policy is to treat all job applicants and employees fairly and equally.

Apart from the buzz of being part of the Brewery, we offer our staff some great benefits:

  • FREE Cinema and Event tickets for staff plus one
  • Discount on food for staff
  • FREE Parking while at work
  • Six weeks’ holiday
  • Auto enrolment pension scheme


Volunteer for us

The Brewery Arts Centre also advertises volunteer posts.  If you are keen to gain experience for your CV, have any spare time or you would like to give something back, then take a look at our current volunteer vacancies!

We offer a variety of opportunities for you to share your knowledge for the benefit of the arts community and we value your expertise.  In return for your valuable time, you’ll meet new people, enjoy new experiences and gain insight into how The Brewery Arts Centre operates ‘behind the scenes.’

Gift Vouchers

Gift Vouchers are a wonderful way to treat someone to a memorable experience at The Brewery. They can be used to purchase tickets for the cinema and live events, or exchanged for food and drink vouchers to be used in the VATs bar or Grainstore restaurant.
