Manchester Academy

Manchester Academy is an award winning, iconic music venue that is a part of Manchester Students’ Union, the largest SU in the country! The Academy has hosted some epic gigs, from Pink Floyd and Billie Eilish to intimate gigs by emerging local artists. We host hundreds of gigs a year, with over 300,000 fans coming through the doors – and we need a friendly, professional Front of House Manager to welcome our visitors!

A day in the life of a Front of House Manager is varied, with no two shifts the same. The role involves a week of early shifts (08:45-3:30 / midday-7.30pm) followed by a week of later gig shifts (3pm-close). You’ll set up the box office, arranging scanning equipment and managing your team of student staff. You support all MAV / SU Teams and act as the central hub of the Union. On a gig shift, you will liaise with Promoters, Reps and Operations Managers to ensure the smooth operation of events.

We offer a great range of benefits too! You’ll get 30 days of annual leave, an employer pension contribution up to 8%, enhanced sick/maternity/paternity/adoption pay, needs-based compassionate leave, travel loan scheme, staff discounts, free tickets to Manchester Academy gigs, access to an Employee Assistance Programme and access to our learning platform!
