What’s new for April 2024 at the Roundhouse? A quick roundup

It’s been a busy couple of weeks up here at The Roundhouse. It’s constantly evolving as more of our facilities are completed and opened to the public.

Below are the latest updates to our fantastic community centre this month:-

We are recruiting Leisure Assistants at The Roundhouse!

Part time seasonal roles available.

Are you looking for a new challenge? Can you provide excellent customer service? Do you prefer having a variety of tasks? Then this may be the job for you.

Our leisure assistants will provide day to day care of the building and surroundings. Individuals need to have a strong customer focus with a passion for inclusion. They will access the booking system for soft play, sports hall and various functions and prepare relevant areas for usage.

The role requires cleaning and restocking of communal areas, toilets and changing facilities. Experience of Health & Safety, COSHH, First Aid and Fire procedures would be advantageous but full training will be given. As there is a requirement for staff members to complete similar tasks at other locations throughout the parish and transport equipment, a driving licence is essential to the role.

There is a mix of daytime, evening and weekend working on rotation with one in three weekends off. The hours of work are variable per week and attract an hourly rate of £12.01.

Interested candidates should request further information and full job description by emailing info@theroundhouse.im then submit their CV and covering letter explaining how their skills, experience and attributes make them suitable for the role.

The closing date for applications is Monday 29th April 2024.
