Vacancies Manager and Assistant Manager

The best sports and leisure jobs in the country… we think so!

Lee Valley Regional Park White Water Canoe Centre
Manager & Assistant Manager 

Competitive salary: excellent benefits, including up to 30 days annual leave, final salary pension scheme and much much more!

Lee Valley Regional Park will shortly be opening the world class White Water Centre.  This will be one of three London 2012 Games venues we will own, fund and manage after the Games and the only brand new venue to be open to the public before the Games!

We’re now looking for unique people to manage the Centre, situated just north of the M25, near Waltham Cross in Hertfordshire in the heart of the 10,000 acre, 26 mile long Lee Valley Regional Park. We need two experienced leisure professionals to ensure its success as a must-do, must-see adrenalin filled attraction.

As the Manager you’ll be expected to deliver a programme which combines commercial white water rafting with a full range of canoeing activities.  You’ll need to show that you’ve had experience at a senior level managing leisure venues, an understanding of the commercial market, the skills to lead and inspire a team and commitment to achieve the highest standards in all that you do.

As the Assistant Manager you’ll support the Manager of this prestigious venue.  You’ll have operations management experience and be flexible in your approach as this centre will demand the highest level of “hands on” management. 

These are high profile jobs which will put you at the helm of a centre giving people the chance to raft the rapids ahead of the Olympians!  A knowledge and interest in water sports is a must alongside energy, passion and commitment.

We’re relying on you to make the White Water Centre the most exciting venue and ensure its programme achieves remarkable results making this the best centre of its type in the world!
