c. £30,000 pa + benefits Workington Leisure Centre, Cumbria

2016 will see the opening of the new flagship leisure centre in Workington. With £11m of investment, this will be a key facility for us here at GLL. The facilities include two pools (with seating for 200 spectators), climbing wall, squash courts, a large sports hall, 100-station gym, group exercise and spin studios as well as outdoor space. We’re looking for an experienced, confident General Manager able to lead the centre through the stages of mobilisation, opening and becoming fully operational.

GLL is a charitable social enterprise committed to making an active, healthy lifestyle accessible to all. As General Manager, you’ll help us achieve this. This role has a focus on shaping a clear strategic framework to deliver our operational and financial targets – all whilst forging even stronger links with our business and community partners. It’s a role that offers huge variety. So, as well as enjoying a hands-on management role, some of your time will be desk-based, as you ensure compliance and support the administration involved in opening and running a busy leisure centre.

Naturally, we have stringent safety procedures in place – but ultimately, you’re given the freedom, support and training to run your centre as your own and drive innovation as you see fit – all with the support of our head office function. Continuing your strong track record of budget management, achieving big business objectives, product growth and excellent customer service, you’ll be a real people-person with proven success in, and knowledge of, the leisure, lifestyle and fitness worlds.
