Arcade Supervisor 36hrs+(as a result of retirement)
: Job Details :

Company : Derwent Amusements

Job Location : Matlock, UK

Job Description :

Please note that as a result of operational demands during the school holidays we may not be able to reply to applications as quickly as we would like, and it is feasible that we may not be able to fully progress with our recruitment plans until schools re-open in September. We thank you in advance for your patience if you are considering applying for this role.

As a result of retirement, we are looking to appoint a further full time Supervisor to help run our busy Amusement Arcades in Matlock Bath. Whilst not a technical role as such, part of the role will to be involved in the repair, upkeep and maintenance of our arcade machines, so experience repairing electronic or electrical machinery would be a distinct advantage (although not essential). Mature candidates are most welcome.
It is anticipated that when we are fully staffed, there will typically be in the region of 36 hours per week split across five shifts, although there will be more hours available during periods of staff holidays etc.

We are a long established business with more than 50 years of operating in Matlock Bath. We are open 10am-10pm daily, and require someone who is capable of working within a small team and is flexible enough to work a variety of 6hr and 12hr shifts including day shifts, evenings and weekends until 10pm (and sometimes later), so it is important that candidates are able to get to & from Matlock Bath in line with our opening & closing hours. It is envisaged that a typical 'base' week (before overtime to cover colleagues etc) would typically consist of one 12hr or two 12hr shifts, and two to four 6hr shifts (although again, this may change if there are holidays etc to cover).

This is a 'hands on' role based on the shop floor and the successful candidate will often be the person in charge of running the shift at one of our businesses when they are on duty. If you have key-holder / supervisory experience in other businesses such as shops or pubs then this may be similar. It involves making sure that we open on time and ensuring that the business is continually clean and well stocked, as well as helping our customers with any problems and dealing with cash to keep our machines and cash desk running. As amusement / gaming machines are a fundamental part of our business, part of the role is dealing with basic problems as they arise, and then in time learning how to tackle more complex repairs, and getting involved in machine maintenance and setting up new machines before customers play them for the first time. Any experience of dealing with electrical and/or electronic equipment would therefore be a distinct advantage, and we would especially welcome applications from more mature candidates who may have these skills.

Due to the seasonality of custom in Matlock Bath we can often be either extremely busy or extremely quiet. Ideally we are looking for someone with energy who is able to adapt to both scenarios with ease by working well under pressure during our busy periods, and is able to 'roll their sleeves up' and identify / get on with other housekeeping or building/machine maintenance jobs that need completing during our quieter off peak times.

Please note that the law requires we employ someone 18+, and we will only consider applications from candidates that live within reasonable commuting distance of Matlock Bath.
