Roc-Bloc is an exciting new bouldering centre in Cardiff. Currently under construction, we are planning for a mid-October opening with the focus on creating a spacious and modern centre with great route setting that is suitable for beginners to competition climbers.
We are now ready to recruit a core team of Duty Managers.
Whilst the Duty Managers will work under, and report to, the Centre Manager, they also need the ability and maturity to work independently, look after the centre in the CM's absence and manage more junior staff.
Experience working in the climbing wall industry
Passion for climbing
Enthusiastic with great customer skills
Ability to work in a small tight knit team
Confident using IT systems (ideally Rock Gym Pro)
Admin skills to be able to deal efficiently with bookings and enquiries
Attention to detail
Willingness to work evenings and weekends as required
Willingness to get stuck into whatever jobs need doing
We expect different Duty Managers to arrive with different skills and knowledge enabling them to take on responsibility for different aspects of Roc-Bloc's offering. We are looking for some or all of the following skills in the make up of the Duty Manager team:
Cafe Roc-Bloc will have a basic food offering and of course great quality coffee. Cafe / barista experience would be beneficial as well as ideally some supervisory experience in this area.
Coaching A strong coaching offer is a priority - from helping beginners get the best out of the centre through to elite performance coaching. The Roc-Bloc coaching offer will be overseen by the Centre Manager but a strong interest / qualifications in coaching amongst other staff will help promote this ethos through everything that happens in the centre.
Climbing hold sales Roc-Bloc have taken on the sales of 'Beacon Holds' and we hope that one of the Duty Managers will take on responsibility for promoting the holds, dealing with enquiries and general admin.
Route setting Excellent route setting is another big priority and we feel that all staff should be involved to some degree and previous experience/training in setting would be advantageous.
If you are interested in being part of the Roc-Bloc team please send a CV and covering letter to Emily and Steve: firstname.lastname@example.org
Salary: Approx £10-12 per hour based on previous experience / qualifications. Closing date for applications: 6th September Interviews: 13th-15th September Anticipated start date: 14th October
