As a Centre Supervisor you will work alongside a manager and deck crew to make sure the day to day running of the centre is looked after. This includes ensuring the boat hire operation runs smoothly and safely, the shop is stocked and looked after, customer enquiries are dealt with quickly and professionally and to keep the business clean, tidy and presentable. The role is a physical job and you will need to be fit and strong.
