GLL is looking for an Events Duty Manager to ensure the smooth day-to-day running of Bath Pavilion in Bath, Somerset. The position sits within Better Venues – part of our new and growing GLL Events division.

You’ll thrive on making our clients and guests feel special whether they’re high-profile, public figures or not. This is a largely hands-on role where you’ll provide support to the wider events team, as well as to clients before, during and after events with the view to retaining their business on the back of our excellent service. You’ll be part of a team that you’ll inspire with your accuracy around health and safety procedures, security and sales. Your previous experience working in events will have taught you that this isn’t a 9-5 job. With events running late into the night, you could be working shifts that don’t finish until 3am where you’ll be expected to close the building.

With a venue such as this, it goes without saying that your attention to detail and customer service skills will be excellent. Friendly and likeable but able to command respect, you’ll be confident giving tours of the venue to potential clients / customers, answering phones, managing a team of porters and planning duty rotas. Ideally you’ll have a mix of operational and sales experience from an events background. It would be beneficial, although not crucial, for you to be a Personal Licence holder and have a First Aid at Work qualification.

In return, we offer a range of benefits that you’d expect from the UK’s largest leisure provider:

  • Pension
  • Childcare vouchers
  • Ride to work scheme
  • Discounted membership at our leisure centres
  • The opportunity to join the GLL Society and have a say in how we’re run plus associated social events
  • Career Pathways
  • On going training and development

All pay rates are subject to skills, experience, qualifications, age and location.

To be shortlisted for the role, internal applicants will need to demonstrate their commitment to GLL by becoming a Society member where eligible.
