Community Pools Manager

If strategy and collaboration are the two things you enjoy most in a management role, then Wellington City Council could well be your next career move.

We're starting the year with some big changes to how we manage our recreational facilities. We want to create a more consistent customer experience across all our facilities in line with our commitment to continuous improvement, so we've reorganised to foster stronger relationships between them. And that's where you come in.

As Community Pools Manager, you'll be in charge of six of our pool facilities. You'll use your strategic planning and people development skills to support operational staff, who'll take care of the general running of the pools.

We've already got a positive, collaborative culture, but as a seasoned people manager you'll understand how to harness that to grow a team's capabilities. After all, happy frontline staff make for happy customers. There's a real focus on health and safety and customer experience here, as well as business and asset management.

This is a big opportunity to show us what you can do and prove yourself. You'll start by developing a business plan for the community pools, so your fresh and innovative ideas will be welcomed from day one.

What about your life in Wellington? You won't find a vibe like it anywhere else - there's lots to see and do every day. With great food, even better coffee and loads of outdoor activities within minutes of the CBD, it has everything that makes a city great to live in.

No doubt, this is a great time to join us. You'll help to make an already well-regarded set of facilities even better, share your expertise with other managers, and take a lead role in your team's personal and professional growth. What an opportunity.
