GLL is looking for a Health and Fitness Supervisor based at Waterfront Leisure Centre in Woolwich, South East London.

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 the passion, talent and ambition to join us as Health and Fitness Supervisor in one of London’s biggest leisure centres, there’s never been a more exciting time to progress with a sector leader. This is more than a job – it’s a career. Supporting the smooth running of a leisure centre, you’ll ensure the health, safety and enjoyment of customers and colleagues alike.

There’s no such thing as a typical day as a Health and Fitness Supervisor. That’s what makes this hands-on role so special. Here, you could be doing anything from welcoming new staff and dealing with customers to updating your Health and Fitness Manager and checking everything is running in the facility as it should. Essentially, you’ll be inspiring your fitness and sales teams to be the best they can be, hit sales targets and keep each and every customer happy.

As a Health and Fitness Supervisor, you’ll need to be on the ball with all aspects of your centre, location and the leisure industry as a whole – from managing teams to consumer trends. So, if you’re ready to go the extra mile, in return, we’ll develop and train you to sharpen your skills in this diverse role. Naturally a knowledge and passion for fitness as well as the focus and dynamism needed for sales will be of utmost importance.

Highly organised with a can-do attitude, you’ll be a fast learner who’s focused on customer care. Able to think on your feet, you’ll also confidently respond to all sorts of issues that arise in a busy centre. Planning and communication skills will be vital too, as you build relationships with contractors, colleagues and communities. Knowledge of leisure operations and a track record of supervising in a busy wet/dry leisure centre is essential. It goes without saying that you’ll be experienced in customer service as well as having a NVQ Level 2 Fitness Instructor qualification.

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

  • Pension
  • Childcare vouchers
  • Ride to work scheme
  • Discounted membership at our leisure centres
  • The opportunity to join the GLL Society and have a say in how we’re run plus associated social events
  • Career pathways
  • Ongoing training and development

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

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

To be shortlisted for the role, internal applicants will need to demonstrate their commitment to GLL by becoming a Society member where eligible.
