Area Manager (office based)
Working from our Head Office in the Midlands you will be responsible for looking after around 25 of our UK leagues. Knowledge of football is not essential but you must be organised, be able to prioritise and have an excellent telephone manner, and you will be speaking to your staff (in the field) on a daily basis.
Using our automated website you would monitor how your staff input results and fixtures and ensure that they do an effective job for you. Occasionally you will be required to visit them and you will need to think clearly and positively about how to get the maximum from your group of leagues.
Most of our Senior Executives and Senior Managers start as Area Managers doing this job. If you are good at it you can expect to be promoted and have the opportunity to do other roles within Leisure Leagues.
The salary range is between £16,000 and £30,000 per annum but our Area Managers have the opportunity to substantially increase their wage with an aggressive weekly bonus system. A general rule of thumb would be that if this is your first job out of university you can expect to be on our starting salary of £16,000 but if you’ve come from another job, and you are successful, we will often match your salary or beat it. Many of our Area Managers are on more than our top range and your salary is set according to your circumstances.
We have a smart casual dress code and a flexible hours system but we do expect you to work lates (until 7pm) on Mondays and Tuesday because they are the busiest days. Most of our Area Managers leave early on a Friday once they have completed their weekly tasks and this might be anywhere between 11am and 2pm on a Friday.
Applications received without a personal covering letter will not normally be responded to. You should always provide a personal covering letter along with an up to date CV. We respond to all applications who provide this. Applications should be submitted to [email protected]
International Training Executive
Based primarily in Pakistan, you will assist our international licensees in developing the Leisure Leagues brand across the world both by attending important events and training new Leisure Leagues staff in different countries.
This is a fantastic opportunity for someone looking perhaps to relocate, start afresh or use their experiences and skills in new countries. Family relocation packages are also available, if necessary.
Essentially you will be the face of the UK branch of Leisure Leagues abroad and help our international licensees with all aspects of developing the Leisure Leagues brand.
You need to be super flexible and open to new challenges and new ideas all of the time, as well as being smart, presentable and being able to deal with unexpected and new challenges such as media events or group training, as necessary. You need to be a quick learner and be able to understand the issues surrounding any given situation very quickly.
Salary range in the region of £30-£35,000 plus all expenses including travel, accommodation and other expenses including, if required, relocation expenses.
A significant opportunity for someone who enjoys travelling and enjoys meeting new people and experiencing new cultures.

Hard working entrepreneurs
We offer the opportunity for hard working potential entrepreneurs to develop their business skills within our forward thinking environment. You would be trained as an Area Manager for 6 months and then, if successful, you would be given an opportunity to take forward a particular new strand of the business and develop it in your image. You would therefore be responsible for marketing, getting the brand’s name out there and social media for the brand and with the possibility to obtain shares, directorships dependent on success.
You would need to be hard working, creatively thinking, a problem solver, be prepared to work long or unusual hours and have a burning will to succeed. Most importantly you would need to be a sticker and not someone who gives up at the first sign of trouble or difficulty.
Salary range is entirely dependent upon who you are, but generally we might be looking for University graduates or people who may be have the ambition to be more than what they are currently doing.
Referees and Match Night Supervisors
We have part time positions across the length of the UK for referees and match night supervisors to work across our leagues. You can work as many nights as you like and your pay will be anything between £10 per hour and £20 per hour, dependent on your experience, length of service, how good you are and how good a job you do. You are provided with a free kit, training and you’ll start off by being inducted at one of our leagues local to you. You should apply on our website www.leisureleagues.net/page/become-a-referee , providing as much information as possible.
To apply please send a copy of your CV and cover letter to [email protected].
