- Rare opportunity
- Located on the Coral Coast
For the first time in 19 years, a rare opportunity will become available in early 2020 for a Club General Manager at the outstanding Brothers Sports Club in Bundaberg. Located only a short drive to the Southern Great Barrier Reef where the Coral Coast offers an idyllic beachside lifestyle, it’s not only the location that will excite you, but the opportunity to steer this club into an exciting future and stamp your personality and enthusiasm on the club’s culture.
Brothers Sports Club has been part of the sporting and social environment of Bundaberg for almost 50 years. The stewardship of the retiring General Manager and a stable professional board has created a club that is a force to be reckoned with in the regional sporting environment, and equally important, a cultural and social hub within the Bundaberg community.
As the General Manager, you’ll be responsible for ensuring the ongoing success and profitable operations which includes a beer garden, sports bar, 218 gaming machines, a variety of function rooms, events centre, 11 sporting clubs and three unique catering operations with White China, ONE30 Café and a Bistro.
The successful candidate must strike a balance between being a skilled and experienced professional practitioner and a corporate leader, capable of developing and driving a positive organisational culture in a friendly, relaxed regional environment.
A highly energetic and outgoing personality with a strong background in clubs/hotels or significant high-volume hospitality operations, whilst demonstrating an ability to deliver above-benchmark earnings results and operational standards over a sustained period is imperative. Your leadership, organisational capacity and inherent drive will naturally enable you to develop and drive a busy strategic agenda, whilst overseeing and delivering quality operational standards and performances. You will be a leader who has a passion for engaging and connecting with staff and members.
The role requires a level of understanding to liaise, report and work closely with the club’s Board and a capacity to implement their vision and follow their direction. Working with the Board to set a strategy, you will subsequently be afforded the resources and the latitude to implement strategies through a range of operational plans. You’ll be progressive in your thinking and pursue new technologies and innovations, so that the operations remain highly relevant to the changing demands of the business and consumers.
The successful candidate will also be able to demonstrate:
- Capacity for strategic thinking and implementation of strategic plans
- Demonstrated leadership within a complex and multi-faceted environment
- Strong business acumen and a high level of understanding of financial management
- An understanding of, and a proven track record in driving gaming revenue
- Demonstrated understanding and the ability to grow revenues in all areas through initiatives that result in strong profitability
- A passion for customer service demonstrated by managing positive culture through HR systems
- An understanding of the community club sector and sporting club operations
If you have the skills and experience to fulfil this role and you’re looking for a tropical lifestyle within a major regional centre with sandy beaches and national parks right on your doorstep, why not send our team your resume with a covering letter outlining how you meet the criteria for this position. Remuneration will be negotiated subject to the qualifications and experience of the successful candidate.
