Relief/casual to cover annual leave and sickness

An exciting opportunity has arisen to join our dynamic and enthusiastic operations management team.  The operations manager will work across all four of our leisure centres at Blidworth, Dukeries, Newark and Southwell, predominantly working at Newark and Dukeries. 

We’re looking for an individual who has experience of working in a customer focussed and fast paced environment, which could have been achieved through another sector, not necessarily leisure.  The individual needs to be passionate about providing great service and has a genuine interest in the sport and leisure industry.

This is a key role in the operations of our business, supporting customers to enjoy their visit and receive a high quality and positive experience, whilst being able to work as part of a team to manage the facilities and staff and ensuring that everyone is kept safe. 

The postholder will also be responsible for managing a team of staff in the business, for example, swimming teachers or leisure attendants which includes their recruitment, working times, ongoing training and performance. 

In return, we offer excellent terms and conditions which include:

  • Discounted access to the Company fitness and children’s membership packages
  • Contributory pension scheme
  • An employee training programme that gives everyone the opportunity to learn the skills they need to unlock and fulfil their potential
  • Available courses include leisure duty manager level 3. For further information about our training programmes visit Empowered Skills Training | Lifetime Training
