We’re looking for an ambitious, high energy General Manager to lead our flagship Liverpool climbing centre as we take centre stage in one of the UK’s fastest growing lifestyle sports.
If you’re passionate about creating opportunities for people to come together in an atmosphere that is obsessive about exceptional service, professionalism, an amazing work culture and lots of fun, we’re very keen to hear from you.
We are open every day supporting our vibrant community with great climbing, great experiences and great quality, locally sourced food and drink in a welcoming, relaxed environment.
The position of General Manager is not for the faint hearted. You’ll be commercially astute, customer-focused and full of ideas to evolve the site and our company whilst supporting your friendly, passionate crew.
The UK climbing marketing is growing rapidly, almost entirely driven by bouldering. With no clear market leader, our plans for the business put us in a great position to take up that position and our General Managers are absolutely key to our success.
We love what climbing is; the travel, the mental challenge, physicality but at least as much, the social side, craft beers, great coffee and good food!
Who is our perfect person?
• Our vision is to ‘help people feel good about themselves and each other through their shared experience of climbing’ – you’ll be responsible for ensuring the Hangar has a positive impact on people’s lives and therefore driving our commercial success. Hangar General Managers have a natural gift for hospitality and inspirational leadership demonstrated through passion, their example and their commitment.
• General managers are masters of many trades with a tireless focus on the detail. You already understand why incredible coffee and cake are as important as delivering incredible climbing. Faultless service and immaculate facilities are your baseline expectations, and little gives you more joy than seeing your team and customers grow and succeed under your guidance.
• A calm and systematic individual with experience of managing costs, maximising revenues and a test and learn approach to innovation.
Competitive salary and package including an attractive bonus scheme
