Welcome Desk Staff

The Dartmouth Sportsplex, built in 1982, is a family-focused health, fitness, and recreation complex that serves Dartmouth’s communities and all regions of the Halifax Regional Municipality. The former Dartmouth Sportsplex offered an arena, running track, racquetball and squash courts, full fitness centre, two swimming pools, and various meeting spaces. In November 2018, the facility will complete a major $25 million revitalization project, re-opening with new features such as a double gymnasium, new fitness centres and equipment, new welcoming community spaces, and so much more. In addition to the physical renovations, the facility is also launching a large-scale community outreach and accessibility program to reduce barriers and ensure that everyone in our community can play at the Sportsplex.

Diversity is a primary value of the Dartmouth Sportsplex. As an equal opportunity employer, we consider individual talents, skills, and unique perspectives to provide the best service to our vibrant community. Currently, the Dartmouth Sportsplex is seeking several energetic people to serve as our Welcome Desk representatives, serving customers and potential customers at our Welcome Desk. This position involves:

  • Welcoming customers to the facility and answering phones.
  • Sales tasks (including processing registrations for facility passes, programs, products and services) and taking payments.
  • Conducting facility tours.
  • Delivering a high quality, friendly, and welcoming customer experience.
  • Good organizational, cash handling and balancing, and administrative skills.
  • Monitoring of the parking lot.

We’re looking for individuals who:

  • Are passionate about recreation and the impact it has on our community’s health.
  • Have experience and are competent in using computer programs (such as e-mail, word processing programs, web based software, and spreadsheets).
  • Have excellent communication and customer service skills (including written, in person, and over the phone).
  • Thrive when multi-tasking.
  • Understand the skill it takes to deliver stellar customer service.
  • Can work a minimum of 2 shifts per week (flexible hours including morning, evening and weekend shifts).
  • Are efficient, detail oriented, and enjoy working with the public.
  • Enjoy and thrive when working with people with diverse backgrounds and abilities.

Certification in CPR, AED, first aid, and WHIMIS are considered an asset (however we can provide this training to those who require it). Bilingualism (English along with Arabic, French, Swahili, or Mandarin) is considered an asset but is not a requirement.

This is a hands-on position and the successful candidates will work as part of the Welcome Desk team to create a diverse and superior customer experience. We offer a supportive work environment, flexible working schedules, and a staff facility access pass benefit. Please contact Michelle Harris - Welcome Desk Coordinator.
