Reaching The Summit

Edinburgh International Climbing Arena is one of Edinburgh Leisure’s flagship facilities. The venue manager is an important and high-profile role both internally within Edinburgh Leisure and externally with the City of Edinburgh Council and the local, national and international climbing community. So, as you would expect, we are seeking a person of the highest personal and professional standards to fill it. 

We need you to provide inspirational leadership to the staff at the venue enabling them to deliver a great service to our customers. You will need to achieve the venue’s KPIs particularly our income and usage targets, deliver international events and continue to develop and improve all aspects of the facility, including the fitness, soft play and café.  

Naturally, you have bags of experience of working in the sport and leisure industry and given the nature of the post we would expect the postholder to have a knowledge and understanding of climbing and bouldering.  

In return, we are offering one of the best rewards packages in the business, with generous pension, holidays and free membership of Edinburgh Leisure’s facilities.

less than £2400 a month?
Following an apprenticeship to completion would get you that money easily, not to mention a f*ck ton less stress.

This hobby/sport/activity/Industry is being bled dry, and Job roles of this level need to change to encourage ensuing change.

I don't pretend to know what to do, but surely a forum is the venue to discuss?

I did think it might be more. It's certainly a very very big job. 

Next time someone is grumbling about public sector goldplated jobs, you can point them at this - City of Edinburgh is being "very careful" indeed with the public purse, for good or bad.

All best wishes for this quite special climbing wall.
