We are looking for an enthusiastic and committed person who has experience in working in a busy and demanding multi-functional leisure facility.

The post has a dual function of managing a diverse events programme, as well as being responsible for effective duty management. This incorporates the health and safety of the facility, as well as the welfare for staff and visitors, whether in general day to day sporting activities mode or delivering a major event.

The ability to plan, communicate and prioritise effectively is of high importance for this role.

The post holder will be responsible for directly managing an onsite events team as well as working with cross departmental teams to ensure continuous improvement and successful event delivery.

Additionally, the post holder will look at attracting new events to the venue.

If you have a keen interest in the events industry and enjoy working with a desire to exceed customer expectations and a drive to improve services, we would like to hear from you.

You should ideally possess an event management qualification or be able to demonstrate experience in event management and have a good understanding of Health and Safety within an event environment.
