Business description

The leisure unit operates and manages sports and leisure facilities within Gällivare municipality. The aim of our activities is to provide the conditions for meaningful and active leisure time for both municipal citizens and visitors. We offer opportunities for activities of various kinds through our various sports and wellness facilities. We are also responsible for grants and other support to associations. The position will have its main location at the new ice and events arena but work at several facilities within the unit will occur.

Job duties

In the position, you perform operation and maintenance work primarily on ice and the event arena, but there is also work at other sports facilities such as athletics facilities, soccer fields, shooting facilities and facilities in outdoor life. The facilities host a wide variety of sports and events, which are used by both associations, the public and schools.

The tasks vary depending on the season and you will drive vehicles such as ice machines, pallet stackers and ice scrapers. Minor maintenance and repairs of machinery and equipment occur. The work is carried out with a high degree of independence. Our new facilities have developed technology which requires special knowledge in these areas. Most of the training takes place on site, but in some cases further training will be carried out in other locations.

You will be part of a work team of three arena technicians who also staff other facilities during certain parts of the year if needed. Together, the work team has a shared responsibility for ensuring that our new sports facility maintains a high standard both outdoors and indoors. A large part of the work is patrolling, maintenance and care of the company's equipment in the ice and event arena, but also maintenance, cleaning and maintenance of other leisure facilities. As an arena technician, you are the face of our business and deliver the highest level of service to our visitors to the sports facilities. You will have great opportunities to be part of the development of our facilities, by specializing and deepening your knowledge of high-standard sports and technical equipment. In order to offer our citizens good accessibility, we staff the facilities 7 days a week, which means that we work in shifts with duty even during evenings and weekends.

The work is carried out in close contact with various employees at our facilities, and therefore you must have easy social contacts and be able to create trusting relationships. Your ability to collaborate and adapt to different working conditions are important.

We offer you varied and stimulating work with many contacts inside and outside our organization. You will be involved in an organization that works with positive issues such as sports and meaningful leisure time. As an employee of Gällivare municipality, you take part in the municipality's wellness benefits.


It is advantageous if you have machine experience, authorization for forklifts and pallet stackers, EL authorization, carpentry or mechanical knowledge. Competence in ice rinks or sports facilities is also meritorious. B driving license is a requirement.

We also look positively on if you have experience from association life. You work independently and see yourself as a good problem solver. Of course, you have a good attitude and cooperate well with both visitors and colleagues. You can easily adapt to changing circumstances and have a flexible way of working. Great emphasis is placed on personal suitability.
