The town's new leisure complex, which is set to open this month, is looking to recruit 40 people before it opens its doors.
The Light, which is part of the Spirit of Sittingbourne's multi-million pound regeneration, will welcome customers at the end of May.
A special launch event will be held before people can return with mayor Cllr Paul Stephen set to attend.
The event which will showcasing all the areas of the Bourne Place venue, including it's retro arcade, nine lane bowling alleys, diner and eight screen cinema.
Before the opening The Light wants to bring in 40 fresh faces from the area to work for them.
It will be holding recruitment day for a number of jobs, including cinema staff, bar staff, floor team members, hosts, chefs, kitchen assistants, bowling staff and managerial roles, on Tuesday, May 4, Wednesday, May 5 and Thursday, May 6.
The opening of the new development has been delayed multiple times over the past year due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Earlier this year deputy chairman Keith Pullinger opened up about the "frustrating year".
He said: "It’ been a frustrating year for us as we’ve had no income for 12 months really and no cinema has been open since Boxing Day.
“It’s been a very unusual project, but despite this our excitement has never waived and we think this is a really good opportunity in the town and wider area and I think excitement is building.
“We’ve stuck with the project and have had great support from the council, who are our landlords, who have been understanding to all our problems and really believe in the project.”
“There were moments where our business was very difficult to plan through because of the uncertainty around how long Covid was going to go on for, but the opening has been helped with Hollywood reopening and a good slate of films coming.
“We’re expecting Black Widow, Peter Rabbit, the Fast and Furious film, Top Gun and James Bond... finally."
The Light's senior business manager Mil Gjoni said: “We are looking for enthusiastic team members who want to be part of something new.
"We want our guests to be as excited on their 100th visit as they are on the first, that means working here isn’t just about knowledge, qualifications or even skills - it’s about heart, character and personality.”
