Job opportunities with Reading Borough Council

Contract Manager (Leisure)

Reading Borough Council
Salary: £35,394 to £38,813 pa
Job location: Reading, UK
Closing date: 23 Feb 2020
Reading Borough Council is transforming its leisure offer. We are creating a range of modern and state of the art facilities, including, a new flagship leisure centre at Rivermead (competition swimming, diving, gym and sports hall), a new swimming pool at Palmer Park Sports Stadium, and improvements to our other two sports centres. This equates to a £40m investment over 3 years into this high-profile transformational project.

This significant investment into facilities is part of a new 25 year contract with Greenwich Leisure Ltd. Service delivery will be overseen and moulded by two new posts, a Contract Manager and Contract Officer. Together these posts will manage and develop this partnership ensuring the service meets the needs of Reading’s community, delivering high quality and inclusive services.

About the role
Being the first Contract Manager to oversee this service, you will have the opportunity to set standards and establish the partnership as a dynamic service and model of good practice meeting the needs of the town. You will take the lead in the development, management and administration of the Council’s leisure contract, ensuring both contractual and statutory compliance. Through the contract we will achieve excellent results including continuous improvement in areas of customer satisfaction and the delivery of corporate priorities. This includes increasing rates of participation in physical activities and provision of services to vulnerable groups.

You will also participate in and support the project teams developing and building new leisure facilities to ensure we maximise the resources and opportunities available, reflecting the aspirations of the Council.

About you
As Contract Manager you will play a fundamental role in shaping the management of the leisure contract into the future, requiring a clear vision of what our service will provide.

• Proactive, determined and positive, you will lead on the development of partnership working, contract management and monitoring systems.
• With a high degree of organisational and leadership skills you will, through the contract, deliver the best quality of service with our leisure partner.
• You will need a track record of successful leisure centre contract management and collaborative partnership working. You will be part of a team applying for Sport England Strategic facilities funding and subsequent other funding for further service development.
• The role, alongside the contract officer, will include monitoring service standards requiring a knowledge of relevant Health and Safety legislation and quality assurance systems such as Quest.
• Strong and varied communication and interpersonal skills will be needed to develop constructive relations with facility and senior managers, customers, stake holders and other partners within the council.
• The ability to negotiate will also be required to maximise the benefits derived from, and future improvements to, the partnership.

Our offer
We offer a supportive environment to grow and develop your career with the opportunity to put your ideas across. Innovation and ambition is strongly encouraged, and you’ll get a great feel for that working in our friendly and collaborative environment.

A competitive salary alongside a range of benefits including:

• Generous holiday entitlement  - 24 days holiday each year plus bank holidays - rising to 32 days after 10 years' service, with the option to buy additional leave
• Maternity, adoption, parental and sick pay
• A wide range of flexible working opportunities 
• Access to a range of training and learning opportunities to help you develop
• Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS)
• Life Assurance - three times your annual salary (for members of the LGPS)
• Season Ticket Loan - a loan to help with the cost of your rail or bus journey, to and from work
• Cycle salary sacrifice scheme
• Lease car salary sacrifice scheme allowing you to lease a brand new, greener car for three years.  The monthly fee includes insurance, servicing and road tax
• Salary sacrifice scheme for Additional Voluntary Contributions (AVCs) to help you save for your retirement
• 'Your Reading Passport' scheme - competitive rates for local gyms
• Shopping vouchers and money off deals
• Staff Club - organises events such as pub quizzes and theatre trips
• Eye care - help towards an eye test and glasses, if you use a computer at work
