Create and develop daily check sheets to ensure that the building run well and is kept safe for customers a staff.
Ensure that DMs have methods to check and resupply the consumables required on a daily basis (toilet roll, light bulbs, first aid kit, etc)
Moderate the DMs to ensure they are completing their jobs to a good standard. Bring disciplinary issues to the line manager for this role (the Centre Manager) and be part of the discussion to improve their performance as necessary.
All the equipment in the centre needs to be regularly inspected and maintained to ensure it is safe for use. This includes the trampolines, boulder wall, ninja, soft play, etc. You will create and develop a system for checking these areas on weekly, monthly or yearly basis depending on what is required.
PPE inspections must be carried out even in your absence. So staff training and process organisation is a key part of your roll.
Work with the team to maintain the building. Develop and monitor a method of communicating building related issues. A DM must know if an issue is in hand and have a way to move on problems that they cannot reasonably deal with during their shift.
Monitor building issues and deal with them prioritising issues regarding safety (eg: faulty stair noses) over issues of aesthetics (eg painting).
Point of contact for the external contractors (including cleaners), ensuring the quality of their work.
You will still be expected to carry out “all-rounder” duties as rota’d or reasonably requested by the management. This may include reception, instructing, duty management and any other jobs the centre requires.
