£30k - £35k per annum (dependent upon experience)
We are looking for a dynamic and highly motivated Park Operations Manager to lead our team in the continued pursuit of excellence.
Banham Zoo, which is part of the Zoological Society of East Anglia, is situated in South Norfolk and has an excellent reputation as an award winning, high quality tourist attraction so is therefore looking for someone with a strong business awareness of the attractions industry.
The successful candidate is likely to already hold a management position in a visitor attraction or similar with extensive experience in a multi-outlet commercial environment and have the passion, dedication, vision and drive to ensure that every single guest of the zoo has the very best visitor experience possible.
This person will be responsible for inspiring and coaching team members under their report and will require first class communication skills at all levels to ensure that staff remain motivated and engaged whilst working in this exciting yet challenging environment. This is a hands-on role which would suit an individual with a good eye for detail and who can ensure that standards of presentation within the park are maintained, whilst achieving financial control.
This role requires a flexible approach to hours and the days worked, as it will entail weekend and public holiday working commensurate with the leisure and tourism sector.
We offer a highly competitive salary, plus benefits, together with the opportunity to contribute towards the success of a charitable organisation.
If this opportunity appeals to you please apply, downloading an application form and together with a CV and covering letter, forward to: Martin Dupée, Director of Operations, Zoological Society of East Anglia, The Grove, Kenninghall Road, Banham, Norfolk NR16 2HE or email to:- firstname.lastname@example.org
