Leader, or boss?

How’s your management style? Tell or show? Fast talker or ready listener? Know it all or ready to admit when you’ve made a mistake? Stress head or level-headed? True leaders are in a different class from the common or garden boss variety and we want the former, not the latter for this top notch role. After all, you’ll be responsible for the overall operation, performance and service delivery of Europe’s largest indoor climbing arena. Leading from the front as you maximise the effectiveness and efficiency of your colleagues and stakeholders. So if you have strong operations management experience in the sport & leisure or adventure sectors, climb aboard and make a difference.
