What we need in a nutshell

We are looking for someone who is a strong leader and can champion our brand and our unique workplace culture.

You will be a role model to your team, someone they can look up to and have the ability to inspire them. You will have bags of energy and be fun to be around. You will have an eye for detail and this will be visible in the Leisure Department under your leadership. You will have the ability to communicate effectively in an emergency and keep calm.

You will be pro-active in your approach to your work, always thinking ahead, and thinking of new ways to do things.

The nitty-gritty of what you’ll be doing

- You will be supporting the Leisure Manager leading a small team to deliver to our guests the very best leisure experience.
- Our leisure department consists of an indoor pool, an outdoor pool, high ropes, climbing, abseiling and also a range of activities.
- You will be responsible for ensuring the department has safety at the forefront of its mind at all times, making sure we follow the health and safety and pool safety policies at all times.
- You will be responsible for planning activities to ensure we execute them to the highest standards at all times. You will lead, guide and coach a small team to ensure they are able to develop under the leadership of you and the Leisure Manager.
- One more thing…holidays happen at holiday times, so you will need to work your magic on bank holidays too.

Skills, experience and qualities you’ll need

- A valid NPNQ (National Pool Lifeguard Qualification) – although we can provide training, you will need to pass our swimming tests first.
- Fantastic interpersonal skills – you’ll need to be assertive as well as friendly
- To be naturally vigilant and helpful - guests come first, so you need to be alert to their needs as well as their safety
- 1 years experience at a supervisory level in a similar role

If your application is successful, you’ll have to apply for an Enhanced DBS. We need to be happy that this, together with other information we may request, is all in order before you can join the team.

Nice to have but not essential

It would be great if you tick some of these boxes too (but we won’t hold it against you if you don’t).

- High ropes, climbing and abseiling relevant qualifications desirable
- Pool Plant Operator certificate
