Funke is to be found right in the heart of Ghent, in the lofty shadows of the picturesque St. Jacobs church. Funke started out as an idea on a piece of paper, but during the past two years, it developed into something very real: a creative incubator and culturally sound nightclub. Funke inhabits many rooms, spread over three floors in a 19th-century building. We host exhibitions, live shows, workshops, lectures, meetings, private dining events and of course: nightlife. We rarely get bored around here, as we’re steadily growing towards 150 events each year. That’s also part of why we’re looking for a club manager!

As our club manager you will be making sure that all of our night-time operations run smoothly - in close cooperation with our bar manager.

By instructing the rest of our crew - and jumping in when needed - you run a tight ship. In doing so, all of our visitors enjoy their night to the fullest and have a very pleasurable experience: from queue, to entrance, to bar, to the dancefloor - and back. You know the building like the back of your hand, you solve a problem when it arises and you are co-responsible (together with all the staff) to create an environment, in which everyone feels safe to express themselves. 

We are looking for an experienced and hospitable person who knows his/her/their way around. Someone who can take the lead when needed. Someone who can maintain a cool head in a dynamic, versatile - and sometimes quite hectic - work environment. 

In addition to a competitive salary package, Funke offers you a warm welcome to what is perhaps the closest family in Ghent.
