This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced and creative person to manage one of Wiltshire’s newest and exciting venues, The Neeld Community and Arts Centre.
This exciting multi-use venue was opened by GBBO’s Mel Giedroyc following a £750,000 improvement scheme in October 2015. In its first 18 months it has established itself as a busy professional receiving house on a national and regional scale. It is also a flexible venue for corporate and private functions and community events and activities.

Our aim is to build on our reputation as a premier venue for Chippenham and the surrounding areas, a quality historical destination for residents and visitors.
Your role will be to:
• Co-ordinate and promote a vibrant, diverse and ambitious programme appealing to a wide range of different audiences – arts and entertainment, educational, sporting, social activities to ensure maximum use by the widest range of people.
• Ensure a safe and high quality customer service experience for all venue visitors and service users.
• Position the Neeld as the venue of choice for community events, private functions, weddings, conferences and markets.
