With a natural gravitas and excellent communication skills, you will support and lead a team of event managers, service managers, duty managers and the wider support team to ensure the Box that Rocks continues to innovate and produce a wide variety of events. In recent times, we have hosted a Dizzee Rascal concert, the World Taekwondo Grand Prix, BBC Sport Relief, the Invictus Games, the International Table Tennis Federation World Cup and also community and school sports days. Naturally, you will need a strong background in running high-profile major venues and a track-record of leading a team with an excellent customer service ethos. Expertly handling a budget, your current knowledge of the leisure, fitness and lifestyle worlds will be just as key as your passion for ensuring the local community have access to a healthy lifestyle and employment opportunities.

In return, we will provide you with all the support and benefits that you would expect from a national business as well as a career in one of the most exciting venues to open in the UK in recent times.
