Managing the day to day operation of a leisure facility.
The role of a Leisure Duty Manager is to manage the effective day to day ‘front line’
operation of a leisure facility. These facilities will vary in size and the services available
such as swimming pools, multi-functional sports hall, fitness suites, crèche, children’s
soft play, health suites, climbing walls and outdoor sports tracks. It is the responsibility
of the Leisure Duty Manager to ensure the facility is prepared for use in accordance with
the planned activity programme and that all areas are maintained to the highest possible
standards of safety, cleanliness, security and operational effectiveness.
Typically, the Leisure Duty Manager will provide visible leadership to a diverse range
of staff such as lifeguards, receptionists, sports coaches, fitness teams and crèche
workers. Their responsibility is to manage staff performance and on-going
development to ensure staff are motivated, efficient and operate at a high standard.
