Aspire Jobs are delighted to be working exclusively with our client who are a well-established business with their H/O in Bournemouth but with multiple sites across the UK.
They are now looking to strengthen their team by recruiting an experienced Area Manager to oversee the day to day running of sites within their geographical area. Travel between various locations will be required. .
Due to expansion and the imminent onboarding of 2 new sites in and around London, including Central London. They are now looking for an experienced Senior Area Manager to strengthen their team. Working alongside a team of 6 other Area Managers covering the UK, you will be responsible for the day-to-day operations of all sites within your portfolio. You will report into a Senior Operations Manager and ultimately the Operations Director.
This is an important role and as such it's vital that you are visible at those sites being responsible for H&S, facilities management, staff welfare and recruitment, cleanliness and security, occupancy levels and commercialisation of those sites as well as other duties.
Due to the nature of the industry our client works within, it should be noted that a high degree of flexibility is required, both in terms of timing of work and the duties involved.

Some of the new sites coming on board will TUPE over staff, so any experience of this would be an advantage but is not essential.
The ability to plan ahead, as well as organise work on a daily basis, is essential, as is the ability to manage conflict and take necessary action if needed.
The Area Manager will have the ability to work under pressure within set guidelines and procedures and also ensure that the standards of quality and customer care are achieved. There will be multiple, ever-changing priorities that need juggling but still delivering excellent customer service in a fast moving customer facing environment.
