Sporting Penistone is a CIO, whose objects are “To work together with local people and organisations, without discrimination, to run Penistone Leisure Centre (PLC). To provide facilities for education and recreation, and improve the wellbeing of local people.” We have a gym, roller skating, classes, sports, rooms for hire and a café. There are 6 staff with regular, part time hours, 6 teenagers who help at parties, and 30-40 volunteers who do a wide variety of jobs from covering reception or skating sessions, doing gym inductions, admin, maintenance, gardening or running sessions. There are also over 30 coaches and regular hirers of our facility, as well as about 3000 unique centre users per year (600 per week). We have an annual turnover of around £200,000 which is mainly income from centre activities and grants for new projects or capital works. We also gain a smaller amount of money from fundraising events and donations.
THE CENTRE MANAGER ROLE
We are looking for a manager who will continue to run PLC as a friendly, accessible community facility. They will evaluate and improve our activities and the way we run, so we can better meet local needs. The centre needs to be self-sustaining, but profit is not the main motivation – additional money will be invested in reaching new people, to improve their health and wellbeing.
Our new manager will be a ‘people person’, able to form positive and productive relationships with the large number of people involved in the centre, and they will see this as an important part of their role. This will enable them to fully utilise the experience and skills of our volunteers, staff and users, both in day-to-day operations and in identifying and implementing improvement opportunities. Effective internal and external communications are vital to the success of PLC. They will be able to think on their feet and solve problems as they occur, finding effective and equitable solutions.
