Hazel Francis - General Manager
I began my career with Kirklees Active Leisure in November 1995 (then Kirklees MC) as leisure attendant at Huddersfield Sports Centre. Throughout my years of employment, I progressed to Acting Duty Manager at Huddersfield Sports Centre, Scissett Baths and Holmfirth Pool.
In 2003 I became manager of three dual-use school facilities that Kirklees Active Leisure were asked to manage on behalf of Kirklees Council which were Royds Hall SC, Almondbury SC and Holmfirth SC.
I became Operations Manager at Whitcliffe Mount Sports Centre in November 2004 and moved to Batley Sports and Tennis Centre as Operations Manager in October 2007. I was promoted to the position of General Manager at Huddersfield Sports Centre in May 2009.
