Ōtaki Pool Manager - Ref 44
Are you up for something new? If you’re an experienced leader, looking for an opportunity to inspire and support a team every day, it’s time to take the plunge!
Right now, at Kāpiti Coast DC, we’re looking for the right person to lead from the front managing our dedicated team at Ōtaki Pool. Sound like you?
Your new role
Opportunities like this don’t come around every day. The chance to lead a fun group of people who love what they do, matched with satisfaction of being hands on, playing a key role in your community. As our Pool Manager, you’re essential to ensuring the kids (and bigger kids!) of Ōtaki can enjoy a safe, clean, and happy place to swim, every day of the year, and you’ll have some autonomy to do so, your way. That means doing all the planning and rostering to see that there’s always a committed group on hand to oversee the pool, and even carrying out lifeguard duties yourself from time to time too. You’ll also make sure the facilities are in tip top shape, and liaise with staff and contractors when needed, so that they stay that way. As the supportive team leader, you’ll ensure everyone feels seen and heard and, helping to train and support staff when they need it. For a natural leader who loves a tight-knit team environment, you’ll be right at home!
What you’ll bring
It goes without saying you’ll need to be a lifeguard yourself to run this team, but if you’re not already trained up, we’ll soon get you there! What we’re really after is a leader with experience managing a team of 10 + that includes a variety of roles, all customer facing. Someone with oodles of enthusiasm who’ll be passionate about keeping pool operations in the best shape to be enjoyed to their fullest! If you’re a true people-person, who can communicate with people from all walks and talks, love interacting with customers and helping others, you’ll thrive. You’ll also be across the MS suite, and handy with a spreadsheet, ready to get stuck into our roster system, and be comfortable managing budgets. Plus, you’ll be able to multitask with the best of them, and keep a cool, confident head under pressure.
The best bits
You’ll soon find out there’s nothing quite like doing a job that brings out the best of your skills, all the while knowing you’re playing a part in making your community a better place. And if that wasn’t enough, you’ll join a unique bunch who make work fun, and be empowered to grow your skills and progress your career wherever opportunities present.
If you’re looking for a fresh start where you’ll feel satisfaction in your role, have your ideas heard, and begin, and end the day with a smile, this is truly it.
