Local Authority Controlled Company (LACC)

Package: Very generous Annual Leave allowance, Option to join Government Pension Scheme, Staff Discounts, Flexible and Agile Working.

With its high quality built and natural environment and enviable quality of life, the Harrogate District is a sparkling gem in the heart of Yorkshire. Since it’s early beginnings as a 16th century spa town, health and wellbeing has always played a key part in Harrogate’s prosperity – you could even say it’s something in the waters!

Over 450 years later, health is very much at the heart of Brimhams Active - a new Local Authority Controlled Company (LACC) created by Harrogate Borough Council specifically to manage its leisure and physical activity facilities and services.

We are now seeking a Managing Director to lead this exciting new company and make a lasting impact on the future health of Harrogate’s residents and communities; creating a distinctive future physical activity offer, implementing our newly adopted Sport and Leisure Strategy and delivering outcomes for “a healthier more active population living longer, more independent and happier lives”. You will also have responsibility for a range of associated operations, including ‘Little Exporers’, our children’s day nursery and the iconic Turkish Baths.

As Managing Director you will have a range of strategic and operational responsibilities for the development of the company, to ensure that the Brimhams Active’s corporate plans and aspirations are effectively delivered. It is a transformational role in increasing participation in physical activity across the District, and in managing the significant investment planned for both facilities and services.

Reporting directly to the LACC Board, you will provide strategic leadership of Brimhams Active and implementation of the operational partnership within the authority delegated by the Board. You will maintain regular and effective liaison with the Board of Directors and Harrogate Borough Council’s representatives, including the preparation of regular performance outcome reports, informing and advising the Board in its decisions.

You will have a strong understanding of the physical activity, health, wellbeing and leisure sector and be financially and commercially astute, with strong analytical skills and a creative approach to both income generation and cost reduction. You will also be an inspiring and motivational leader and an effective communicator who is determined, positive and approachable, with strong ambassadorial and networking skills.

This is an opportunity for a driven and visionary Leader to grow a new and emerging venture and play a prominent part in it.

Closing date for applications: 11 August 2020
