Regional Manager

Job Description and Benefits

As part of the Kings Camps management team, the Regional Manager has overall responsibility for the delivery of a high-quality Kings Camps experience, across a number of camps in a specified region. The Regional Manager’s primary role is to travel and visit each venue at least once a week, which may involve overnight stays, flexible working and being on-call to react to the unexpected.

Reporting to the Head of Operations, Regional Managers are the link between our central office and Site Managers. You’ll oversee, support and audit programmes and teams in your region, helping them to ensure children are active, having fun and learning together.

About the Role

Regional Managers are the first point of contact for a number of Site Managers in a region. You are responsible for contributing to successful camps via troubleshooting, resolving staff issues, responding swiftly to incidents, and providing advice for safeguarding, health and safety and behaviour management.

Before programmes start, Regional Managers attend and support induction training days (usually the weekend prior to a season starting), ensure essential administration is completed, and liaise with our venues.

During a season, Regional Managers liaise with Site Managers daily or weekly, referring to child and parent feedback and taking appropriate action. We use well-proven programme audit, and staff evaluation processes as important factors in our quality assurance.
