Facility Manager – SLO

We’re a rock climbing gym looking for a Facilities Manager, but what we really want are people who recognize that stepping into our communities has the power to change lives.

Managers do not need to be peppy and upbeat 100% of the day, but they should exude a sense of warmth and be comfortable engaging diverse populations both at the front desk and on the floor.

Experience in climbing isn’t a requirement but it is recommended. We are a gym founded by outdoor climbers and we believe in getting outside to climb just as much as we believe in the indoor gym community. How hard you climb is not a factor in your job, but you should have enough experience to speak the lingo, make safety calls, be familiar with gear and equipment, and be confident in your ability to learn and adapt.

Above all else you need to have a strong desire to be part of The Pad community.

It is The Pad’s goal to provide and maintain a safe, clean and well kept facility for our members and staff. The ideal Facilities Manager will be well-organized and able to optimize the use of space and equipment while reducing operating costs.
