Prospectus is pleased to be collaborating with Greenhouse Sports, a London based charity who believe that every child deserves a fair chance to succeed. They develop life skills for young people in London's most disadvantaged communities and have recently acquired a very fine disused church in Marylebone. They are currently in the process of refurbishment with the vision to create a prestigious sports facility for local neighbourhoods and wider London communities.

Following the recent successful recruitment of the Centre Director, they are now looking for a motivated and hands-on Centre Manager who will be responsible for managing the day-to-day operations of the centre, as well as all aspects of Health & Safety across the charity. With significant involvement in the strategy and planning, facilities management and the service delivery of the Centre, you will be responsible for establishing and managing local and London-wide partnerships, as well as recruiting and building a talented team who will empower them as a charity to make their vision a reality.

To be considered, you will have significant specialist knowledge of property and facilities management, including the statutory requirements for managing hard and soft services as well as experience of liaising and negotiating with contractors and suppliers. Given the early life cycle of the Centre, you will possess previous experience of contributing to the strategic vision of a project combined with the ability to recruit, train and manage talented staff. The commitment to and passion for enabling disadvantaged communities is essential as is the knowledge and understanding of the safeguarding of vulnerable children and adults.

This is an exciting opportunity for someone who is passionate about the influence sport can have on wider communities.
