We are looking for someone who can cover duties on Friday and Saturday evenings 6.00 pm to 11.00 pm.

Due to the early opening and late closing of the Centre, the situation would probably be best suited for someone who lives within a 3-mile radius and has easy transport to the Centre. The applicant needs to be adaptable and willing to adjust hours/days when necessary.

The successful applicant will be expected to

a) assist hirers in preparing rooms (this may entail lifting heavy tables),

b) be able to operate the heavy cleaning and polishing machinery used at the Centre,

c) ensure that toilets and kitchens are hygienically clean before and after events,

d) ensure the safety and security of the Centre at all times,

e) comply with the current ‘dress code’.

The Shirley Community Association pays the National Minimum Wage which currently stands at £9.50 per hour for those over 23 years of age.

Please apply in writing giving details of past work experience to Chairman, Shirley Community Centre, 274, Stratford Road,  Shirley,  B90 3AD.

Unfortunately, due to low ticket sales, we are sorry to announce that we have had to postpone the Platinum Jubilee Party due to take place at the Shirley Community Centre on the 4th of June.

Tickets for the event will be £12 for adults, and £6 for children

Platinum Jubilee Party

Why not come and join us as we celebrate the 70th year of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s reign?

With entertainment provided by the members of Centre Stage Theatre, a buffet supper and a licensed bar, starting at 7.30pm on the 4th June at the Shirley Centre.

Tickets only £20 per head.


Great news! Funding received from Heart Of England Community Foundation has been added to the total raised so far and work has been able to start on the ladies toilets.

New tiles and a hand drier will make a start to smartening up the facilities and making them fit for purpose.

Please bear with us whilst the renovations are under way and if you’d like to help with a spot of painting and decorating then please get in touch.
