The Head of Business Services will have overall responsibility for ensuring the highly effective and efficient operation of all indoor, outdoor and off-site sports facilities to deliver a consistently high customer experience. You will oversee the marketing and communication of our programmes and services and ensure that we reach as many of our University community as we can, providing an inclusive and accessible service. You will identify trends, analyse data and produce reports which may have an impact on the service and plan and implement strategic approaches to address these.
