Trainee Assistant Manager at New Soft Play Business

East Lothian Leisure Ltd will shortly open an innovative and alternative new soft play, party and café facility in the centre of the town of Haddington, 18 miles east of Edinburgh. Two assistant manager posts are available, starting autumn 2014. 

Location: Haddington, East Lothian
£7.65 per hour. Full-time, permanent position.
Early October start.

This is an excellent opportunity to be involved from the start of an exciting and enjoyable new business that is keenly awaited within the area.

Reporting to the manager, day to day duties will include interaction with customers of all ages, using IT systems, obtaining party bookings, updating the website and social media to include news and events, reception/cafe duties, PR and marketing and organising special events. In the development phase, assistance with updating the website would be a strong advantage.

As the facility will be open 7 days a week, shift duties and weekend work will be involved, including before and after opening hours.


The ideal candidate will have very strong interpersonal and communication skills with all ages, be confident and comfortable working around young children, have excellent IT and website skills and a commitment to excellent customer care.

All posts will be subject to a successful Disclosure Scotland check and membership of the PVG scheme.
