We are open every day growing our vibrant community with great climbing, great experiences and fantastic locally sourced food and drinks in a spacious, energised and super friendly environment.

The position of General Manager is not for the faint hearted. You will be commercially astute, customer-focused, and full of ideas to evolve the site, obsessive about nurturing the right culture and dedicated to creating a sustainable and socially minded business.

The UK climbing market is growing rapidly, almost entirely driven by bouldering. With no clear market leader, our plans for the business put us in a great position to take up that position and our General Managers are absolutely key to our success.

Who is our perfect person?

  • Our vision is to inspire happier, healthier more connected people – so you will be responsible for ensuring the Hangar has a positive impact on people’s lives and driving our commercial success by helping both crew and customers feel great.
  • Hangar General Managers have a natural gift for hospitality and inspirational leadership demonstrated through passion, leading by example and their commitment to building happy, thoughtful and engaged teams.
  • General managers are masters of many trades with a tireless focus on small details. You already understand why incredible coffee and cake are as important as delivering incredible climbing.
  • Faultless service and immaculate facilities are your baseline expectations, and little gives you more joy than seeing your team and customers grow and succeed under your guidance.
  • A calm and systematic individual with experience of managing costs, maximising revenues and a test and learn approach to innovation.
  • You believe deeply in the positive power of diversity and inclusion as well as physical activity in transforming lives

Salary: £28000 - £35000 depending on experience
