If you have a passion for climbing, and the skills and expertise to manage Parthian Climbing's first London mixed facility climbing centre, then we want to hear from you.

We are recruiting a Centre Manager for our brand-new centre on Wandsworth High Street, opening in July 2023. The Centre Manager will be responsible for the day-to-day running of Parthian Climbing's flagship London centre which will offer bouldering, rope climbing, gym, climbing equipment shop, kitchen and cafe.

As market leaders, we have a proven track record in delivering a fun, inclusive and rewarding indoor climbing experience since the opening of our first centre in Manchester, in 2005. In our existing 4 climbing centres we offer climbing for everyone; a passionate community that inspires and grows the next generation of climbers and this is what we're aiming to offer in Wandsworth. 

Our 25,000 sq ft Wandsworth facility will be state of the art and will include Paris 2024's Olympic bouldering wall "The Titan". We will provide a premium climbing experience, underpinned by the highest standards of safety, customer service and positive team engagement. Our customers will enjoy quality route-setting, excellent training and fitness facilities, delicious, locally sourced food and drinks from our café and the latest climbing merchandise and kit from our shop.

Open every day from morning until late evening, managing our centres requires an energetic and self-motivated person. Additionally, the commercially astute Centre Manager will be responsible for the profitability of the centre, development of the centre team and ensuring our customers have a fantastic and safe experience during every visit.

The Wandsworth Centre Manager will be well supported by an experienced company management team. We will provide training and development to ensure that the right candidate will flourish in the role and grow with the company.

As Centre Manager, you will be involved in a variety of exciting pre-opening projects such as recruitment and training of your team and engagement with the local community, so you'll join the Parthian team on Monday 1st May 2023.

Our ideal Candidate will have:

  • A proactive and positive attitude to customer service, staff well-being and developing business opportunities;

  • Current knowledge of the Indoor Climbing Industry and a forward-thinking attitude in progressing Parthian Climbing's status as an industry leader;
