Leisure centres attract around 800,000 visits take place every year, with income levels exceeding £2million, says the council.

The new business manager, says a recruitment advert published this week, will be “a forward thinking, performance focused individual”.

The ad says: “This role is initially being offered as a fixed term post, whilst a project is completed that may replace the current in-house management of the service with another management arrangement.

“Reducing the current deficit of the leisure service towards a zero cost, whilst maintaining community leisure facilities, is a short term goal of the council.”

The council adds: “This is a high profile role that will focus on the continued development of customer service to increase income levels through the effective performance management of the operational management team.”
