You'll no doubt do the obvious research on the web about Hollywood Bowl Group or see the Original Careers Facebook page and you may be surprised how much it's changed over the last 2-3 years.
I'm from a purely Health and Fitness background, having done 20 years as a Health club manager I felt the time had come to do something different. That's how I came to manage the centre in Milton Keynes and now Watford. The best way to understand it is to experience yourself by spending a few hours in a centre on a Friday night shift. That's when you can experience what Hollywood Bowl Group offers you and how vibrant bowling is for a leisure management career. What you also discover when you're here is a huge amount of autonomy where you can express yourself as a manager but with a huge level of control centrally – but in the right places around the stock and audit process. I'm looking forward to progressing my career here, I'm positive you would too.

We look after everyone who works at Hollywood Bowl Group. That's how we attract and reward the type of people we're looking for.
The best people who like interacting with customers. Take our Centre receptions, it's like being on the front desk of a hotel in the fact that you need to be super organised. For a Lane Host, your larger-than-life personality is key. And as for our Managers, we look for all sorts of expertise and they come from all sorts of backgrounds - soft play areas, branded restaurants, health clubs – it's all about a variety of experiences. We ask for a lot people here. But that's why we like to reward you for all your efforts.

We're in the Fun business. We have fantastic Team Members and Managers (and customers) around the country.
I get a chance to help their careers by giving them the opportunity to grow – such as promoting a Team Leader to a management role or making someone a Centre Manager for the first time. It's a great feeling. We can offer this because we are growing as a business and can create more opportunities. Hollywood Bowl Group is very much about innovation, that's why can create new roles. (Mine didn't exist until 6 months ago.) So as we develop, we can develop our team. It can be a challenge working here but it gives you the ideal opportunity to become a better Team Member or Manager with us.

This is the best bowling company I've worked for. It's so friendly and so helpful, everything they do leads to a better career for yourself. It's all to do with how they deal with you.
You really couldn't ask for much more in the way they treat you as an equal. It's about working together to get a good result. I'm proud to work for Hollywood Bowl Watford because it's a great place to work. I didn't know much about Hollywood Bowl Group to start with but in the first few days of joining, they let you know everything you need to know. The great thing about doing this job is that you learn so much so quickly here. It's such a fantastic feeling knowing that you can do something and what you're doing here is effectively making customers happy.
