Brighton & Hove City Council are recruiting for an Assistant Seafront Operations Manager.
About the role
This is a fantastic opportunity to work within a dedicated and committed team. The focus of the Seafront Service is to ensure all those visiting and enjoying this famous and diverse stretch of coastline, will experience a safe, clean and controlled environment. You will work alongside the Seafront Operations Manager, being responsible for the entire 8 miles of coastline and team in their absence. A challenging but extremely rewarding role.
The successful candidate will need to demonstrate excellent decision making skills under difficult and potentially life threatening situations. Experience of managing a dynamic and diverse team is essential; you will need to lead by example, show resilience and compassion. Be an outstanding communicator, motivating a large team of full-time staff and seasonal beach lifeguards. The post holder will need to demonstrate a comprehensive working knowledge within a seafront or leisure environment and hold a current UK recognised Beach Lifeguard qualification. You will have a thorough understanding of the importance of comprehensive health and safety systems, to protect both employees and the public visiting the seafront.
If you have a passion to help others, take on challenges with a positive and professional approach, with a genuine interest in the sea and foreshore, this is an outstanding opportunity to be part of the Seafront Team.
