We are currently recruiting for a Duty Manager based in the heart of Winchester at the award winning River Park Leisure Centre.  As one of our larger centres River Park offers a number of facilities ranging from a gym, swimming pools, studio classes, physiotherapy and sports injury clinics.

What your role will be

You will be responsible for all staff and customers within the centre and you will act as the main point of contact for any complaints or compliments, giving feedback to other managers and addressing these in a professional and efficient manner. On occasion there could be a maintenance issue that you may need to report to make sure that the centre adheres to both current Health and Safety Laws and Places for People Leisure standards.
Part of your new role will be assisting to cover holidays and sickness, so your role will vary from possibly covering the reception desk, or putting on your Chef’s whites and assisting in the kitchen.
This role is 40 hours per week, working on a rolling 4 week rota system. The 4 week rota will include a mix of shifts that could include earlies, lates, weekends and general working hours.

Your background

Places for People Leisure’s vision is ‘to create active places and healthy people’ and we are looking for someone to share that passion with us. You will be managing a large team, so previous experience in a management capacity within a leisure facility would be advantageous, as may also de dealing with investigation meetings and disciplinary hearings.
As a Duty manager you will become one of our registered first aiders and therefore first aid experience, particularly with a defibrillator, would set you part from other candidates.  We are looking for candidates who have an NPLQ qualification.

What we offer you

If you are looking for an organisation that you can develop and that you can grow within, progression is key for us within Places for People. In return we offer you a competitive salary, pension and many further benefits, related to improving your well-being and health such as free gym membership.
