The Duty Manager role is heavily operational and will support the Leisure Supervisor – Operations, with health and safety duties and building management.

Communication is paramount as the Duty Manager will report on building faults and 1st aid to other departments within the University.

The postholder will be required to open & close the building, work on a Monday – Sunday rota, which will also include bank holidays.


The postholder will have experience of working within a leisure facility and ideally some leadership or Duty Management experience. They will need good attention to detail, a flexible approach and the ability to work using their own initiative.
