Inspirational Jobs – Volunteers, The Nomad Cinema

“Doing something charitable isn’t always just about putting money in a collection box. Giving your time could help raise a lot more than what you could do on your own” 

Tatjana, previous volunteer

The Nomad Cinema is the roaming pop-up that gives back: since 2010, The Nomad has earned the reputation as ‘London’s best outdoor cinema’ [Evening Standard], popping up at an inspiring range of beautiful, unique and intriguing screening locations across London and beyond.

The Nomad is about community: our sister cinema is the acclaimed and much-loved independent boutique cinema The Lexi in Kensal Rise, London NW10. Both cinemas are partly run by dedicated volunteers and have developed partnerships with a diverse range of kindred cultural organisations, ethical companies and fairtrade suppliers.

Nomad film events embrace and enhance each venue, offering new ways of experiencing an uplifting range of films, from classics, cult and indie to mainstream guilty pleasures. With its low impact set up, The Nomad wanders into town, unpacks cinema magic, then disappears into the night, leaving no trace.

The Nomad is the pop-up cinema with a difference: a very special festival atmosphere, and that little bit of Nomad magic make our events memorable and unique. More than just providing screenings of great films in appropriately great locations, Nomad events immerse you in the flavour of the film, with quality catering, goodie bags, and a warm friendly welcome…

About the role:

Each of our fantastic volunteers will join the Nomad (and our mascot Lewis The Camel!) on the road, helping us to run the Front of House. You will help bring the magic of cinema to audiences of up to 1500, as the sun sets on some stunning London scenery. This is a great chance to learn from experienced and innovative arts professionals running the UK’s only social enterprise cinema (our beloved cine-sister The Lexi Cinema) and the UK’s first social enterprise pop-up cinema business. You will get real, transferable hands-on experience in hospitality and events management, and gain some extremely valuable skills. Oh, and you’ll get some free tickets to another Nomad or Lexi screening later in the summer.
