Lewes Football Club is looking to recruit a dedicated, outgoing and focused person to provide high standards facilities management at the Dripping Pan stadium.

The role entails both operational and administrative duties: delivery of quality customer service as well as the planning, organisation and implementation of repairs and maintenance, ground improvements and delivering compliance with ground regulation policies. You will be expected to carry out some basic repairs and maintenance yourself.

When on duty, you will be responsible for the security and health and safety of the facility, as well as ensuring that the facilities on matchdays and non-matchdays meet stakeholder expectations.

Along with excellent people skills and the ability to develop working relationships with a wide range of stakeholders, you should also have good organisational and financial management skills. The role will be located at Lewes Football Club, Mountfield Road, Lewes, BN7 2XA.

The role will include the requirement for you sometimes to work early mornings, evenings, weekends and Bank holidays and attend the ground quickly in the event of an emergency. A valid UK driving licence is desirable but not essential.

The main duties will include:

• Oversight of the repairs, maintenance and improvement, security and cleaning of the facility

• Being the point of contact for all matters relating to the venue

• Ensuring the facility meets its Health & Safety and ground regulation and safety obligations, with any issues reported to the club’s Board

• Oversight on matchday and non-matchday of club volunteers

• Planning and monitoring a repairs, maintenance and improvement schedule for the facility

• Applying for grants to improve the facility where applicable

These duties provide a framework for the role and should not be regarded as a definitive list. Other reasonable duties may be required consistent with the operation of the facility

What will you bring to the role?

• Experience of facilities / operational management

• Excellent organisational skills with the ability to work under limited supervision

• Administrative ability to proactively manage the various checklists required by our regulatory bodies and ensure that we are in compliance

• Comfortable with computers and basic office software (Word, Excel, email, etc)

• Can delegate effectively

• Good communication: ability to work with internal and external partners

• Strong leadership, interpersonal and relationship management skills

• The ability to be part of a team that delivers more than the sum of its parts

• Experience of forward thinking, anticipating potential problems, meeting critical deadlines and performing under pressure

• Excellent time management skills

• Willing to work at peak times including evenings and weekends

Start date: Immediate

Salary: £20,800 per annum

Hours: 40 hours per week
