An exciting opportunity has arisen as we are looking to recruit an Operations Manager at the newly refurbished Crosby Lakeside. Consisting of a lake for water sports and activities, a health and fitness suite, two fitness studios, meeting rooms and the soon to be opened Bunk Barn, a residential unit for schools and organisations to stay in, as well as being connected to the recently opened Lake House, the facility is one of Sefton’s primary assets.

You will ensure that the centre operates to the highest standards, in the most efficient and effective way possible. To make this happen we want to attract self-motivated people who have vision, flair, and a desire to succeed. We want our managers to be leaders, to have inspirational personalities, to share our eye for attention to detail, and to be people for whom second best will not do!

You will motivate all of those around you and create a fun, happy and productive workplace. You will also work with your General Manager, management colleagues and the sport and recreation team, to help to implement a variety of council policies and procedures.
