Job Description for Senior Center Manager
Senior center managers oversee facilities for senior citizens which may be privately-owned or run by the city. These managers usually oversee a fixed staff which runs the facility, so they are often responsible for delegating tasks, conducting employee evaluations, hiring and firing when necessary, and administering payroll.Read More...
Senior center managers often work with outside parties, such as teachers who provide classes for seniors and event service providers for special events. They also oversee a budget, so it is important to obtain the highest-quality supplies, activities, and classes available for a low price. There may be challenges in doing this, so problem-solving skills are also important. This is usually a full-time job, but may be part-time if the senior center does not have long hours.
Senior center managers should have good customer service skills, as it is often necessary to interact directly with members of the community. They should also understand what activities the seniors enjoy most and if the classes and activities provided are satisfactory. Making small talk with seniors is important in order to provide a comfortable environment for them and ensure that they will continue to visit the center. The manager will usually have an office, but may also walk around the center and participate personally in some activities. A bachelor’s degree and management experience are generally required for this position. (Copyright 2017 PayScale.com)
