Carlile Swimming has been teaching children to swim well for 65 years. The organisation was founded by Forbes and Ursula Carlile, who were pioneers of Australian swimming education. Forbes and Ursula, together with Carlile Directors John Coutts, and Richard Cahalan, created a system of innovative teaching methods and operating systems that have made Carlile a leading swim school, not only in Sydney, but across the world.

Carlile Swimming’s goal is to teach children to be confident and proficient swimmers and to instil in them a lifelong love of the water. They achieve this goal through the operation of nine swim schools across Sydney, teaching over 20,000 children each week.

Reporting to the Board of Directors, the General Manager will lead and manage the delivery of all strategic and operational requirements of Carlile Swimming and its nine swim schools.

The Directors have developed a clearly defined strategic and operational plan for the business as it recovers from the COVID period. The General Manager will be tasked with the execution of these plans over the initial 24 months, delivering on a set of clearly defined goals and metrics to ensure Carlile Swimming continues to achieve its core business goals within what is regarded as a highly competitive market place.

As the General Manager sets the tone and culture of the Head Office and operations, we’re seeking a dynamic manager with proven team leadership skills and experience and the ability to develop staff within an environment that facilitates great team performance.

To be considered for this leadership role you must have a demonstrated track record in managing and growing like-sized businesses with proven strength and experience across the core functional responsibilities of leadership, governance, relationship management, business development, financial accountability and commercial management.

This is an exciting opportunity to work with one of the most respected organisations in the global aquatics industry. Previous experience in the swimming or leisure industry is not required, however you must be passionate about the role and what Carlile Swimming can do for its customers.

Applications Close: 5pm Wednesday 2 June, 2021 - Please APPLY NOW as we reserve the right to close applications early if sufficient interest is received.
