You will be responsible for shaping and influencing the business to drive its success, so the following skills are essential

Do you genuinely love people and instinctively know how to bring the best out in them? Do you have an inquisitive, analytical, and organised mind and love working in a fast-paced environment?, You will have extensive experience of working within operations at a management level, preferably in the sports or leisure industry.
