Building on our continued growth, we’re now the UK’s largest leisure social enterprise – and set for even greater success. So, if you have plenty of energy, ambition and expertise, join us as a Fitness Instructor at Blackbrook Leisure Centre & Spa in Taunton, Somerset and play a key role in the next step of our journey. Bringing ambition to match ours, this is your chance to help people to achieve their fitness potential with a leisure sector leader.

If you love variety, you’ll thrive here, as you never know who you’ll be supporting next. A typical day could be anything from providing a personal service in the gym and offering workout advice to checking the equipment and even teaching classes. That means we’re looking for a Fitness Instructor with physical fitness, combined with a can-do attitude and the eye for detail needed for paperwork. An obvious passion for all things fitness will need to shine through all you do too, so that you can make a positive difference to people’s lives.

As a Fitness Instructor, part of your role is to inspire people to train independently and keep coming back. So, it all starts with an induction, for you to understand someone’s ability and ambitions – and ultimately, devise a bespoke programme that suits their needs. As a real people-person, this will come naturally as you quickly build people’s trust and confidence. Of course, you’ll also need knowledge of health and safety legislation and experience gained in a busy leisure/fitness centre and the following qualifications: NVQ level 2 Fitness Instructor, Emergency First Aid at Work and REPS Registration Level 2 or above.

In return, we offer a range of benefits that you’d expect from the UK’s largest leisure provider:

  • Pension schemes
  • Discounted membership at our leisure centres
  • Career pathways
  • Ongoing training and development to help you to be the best

If you have the passion and skills for this role, apply now.

All pay rates are subject to skills, experience, qualifications, age and location.

GLL is an equal opportunities employer.
