Further Information

Darlington Gymnastics Club is a large Community Amateur Sports Club situated on the outskirts of the town. Our aim is to promote gymnastics to the local community, giving access to everyone who wants to be involved.

We run classes for all ages and abilities of gymnast – whether they’re just starting, or are heading to regional competitions, and everything in between.

We have capacity for:

• 144 pre-school gymnasts;
• 700 recreational gymnasts;
• 125 competitive gymnasts;
• 24 gymnasts with a diagnosis of ASD in dedicated classes.

We also have a successful schools-development program where some schools visit us as part of their PE curriculum, and where some of our coaches go out into the community to provide coaching in schools.

The club is governed by a committee of volunteers, who support the staff in developing the strategic direction for the club. We have a core team of senior coaches, permanent coaching staff, and a number of casual coaching staff (typically college students).

Job Purpose:

The newly-created position of General Manager is key to further development of the club. Reporting to the committee, the post holder will be responsible for all aspects of running the club, with responsibility for the club’s finances, HR, operations, and fundraising.

This includes being a point of contact for the public using the service and the committee, ensuring policies, procedures and risk assessments are fully implemented, budgeting and finance, facilities management and staff recruitment, management and development.

As an individual you will have a management background and be willing to champion exemplary standards at all times. You might not have experience in all of the areas required but will be willing to learn from our supportive committee, coaches and volunteers.

The club is going through a period of change so we are keen to find someone who will provide a stable base for the club to develop further.

The post is initially part time (including evening and weekend hours) with the potential to develop to full time (if combined with other duties across the club). We are open to discussing a working pattern with the successful candidate that works for both the post holder and the club.
