Bristol Zoological Society is recruiting with Leisure Opportunities
executive job
Job sector: attractions
Job description:
Our mission is to save wildlife through conservation action and engaging people with the natural world. We achieve this mission through operating two zoos; Bristol Zoo Gardens and the Wild Place Project, and through our formal and informal education, conservation and science programmes.

Established in 1836, Bristol Zoo Gardens is the fifth oldest zoo in the world. The Wild Place Project was launched in 2013 on a large, rural site in South Gloucestershire and has enjoyed rapid expansion since its inception.

As the largest visitor attraction in the South West, our zoos have welcomed over 90 million guests and through our national and international field conservation programmes, we have helped save a significant number of species from extinction. We offer popular undergraduate and postgraduate degree programmes in collaboration with local universities and our award-winning education team has taught generations of school children the value of nature, wildlife and the impact our society has on the world.

We are now seeking a new Chief Executive to lead the Society through its next phase of development. In partnership with the newly appointed Chief Zoological Officer, you will ensure that our mission is delivered via an amazing visitor experience and through high quality conservation, research and education.

Our new Chief Executive will have senior leadership experience gained in the leisure or visitor attraction sectors, ideally in organisations with multiple service lines. With strong commercial acumen, you will be able to articulate a clear vision and strategy to ensure increasing visitor numbers and financial sustainability for the Society. If you have the vision and passion to lead a values-based and committed team at this exciting point in our history, we very much look forward to hearing from you.

To find out more about this appointment, please visit For an informal confidential discussion, please contact our advising consultants, Katy Giddens, Juliet Taylor (020 7426 3973) or Helen Anderson (0207 426 3977). The closing date for applications is Monday 11th December 2017.

Do you want to earn an industry-leading salary, with great benefits?

Are you ambitious and driven?

Are you currently working as a General Manager - perhaps at a health club, sports centre, entertainment centre, arts centre or visitor attraction?

If so, then we want to hear from you!

The skills and experience you have as a general manager are exactly the skills and experience you need to become a general manager with Hollywood Bowl Group.

The Hollywood Bowl Group PLC is the place to be if you want to be a valued player in a real success story. With 58 centres across the UK, built on the market-leading Hollywood Bowl, AMF Bowling and Bowlplex brands and exciting expansion plans, there’s never been a better time to join us as a General Manager.

We have opportunities across the South West of England and are looking for excellent General Managers to come and meet us, explore our opportunities, have a tour of the centre, taste our menu, have an interview - and enjoy a game of bowling of course, at the #Place2B.

Be the Customer Service Champion.
Lead, motivate and inspire your team to deliver service that delights our customers and keeps them coming back for more - proactively managing service to create loyal fans for your business.

Be the Leader and People Developer.

Bring the sharp financial insight to manage a successful P&L and drive the outperformance of your centre on a consistent basis - understanding the wider business opportunities, shaping the needs of your diverse customer base and continually developing fan loyalty as well as new footfall.

Be a Dynamic Operator.
This is the place for your ideas - a place where you can develop business plans for your centre, work against your own personal, agreed objectives (as well as set KPI’s) - and measure the effectiveness of all expenditure to ensure a maximum return on your investment.

Be the complete Business Manager.
Your business will include a Cafe, lanes with a VIP area, bar, diner and amusements - so you’ll enjoy the freedom to make a real impact across sales and marketing, driving the optimum financial and commercial performance of your business, in the ever changing leisure sector.

And on top of that, you’ll receive a quarterly bonus scheme too.

Be Clever.
And be quick - if you’re a General Manager with the outstanding qualities above (and ideally your own car), don't miss out and apply today.
