Assistant Manager - Bethnal Green
GLL makes community services and spaces better for everyone. And it’s about more than just money. Our people invest time, energy and effort into helping and improving communities through the services we offer - and with great results. Through “Better” we provide leisure centres, children’s services, spas, libraries, extreme spots, event spaces and standalone gyms.
GLL is looking for an Assistant Manager based at York Hall Leisure Centre in Bethnal Green, 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 an Assistant Manager, there's never been a more exciting time to progress with a sector leader. This is more than a management role - 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 an Assistant Manager. That's what makes this hands-on role so special. Here, you could be doing anything from producing reports, doing building checks, advising Duty Managers and ensuring compliance with health, safety and fire procedures, to inspiring your team to be the best they can be.
As Assistant Manager, you'll need to be on the ball with all aspects of your centre, area 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 Assistant Manager role.
Highly organised with budgeting skills and a can-do attitude, you'll be a fast learner who's focused on customer care. Written and verbal communication skills will be vital too, as you build relationships with customers, colleagues and contractors. We're also looking for an Assistant Manager with a leisure degree or equivalent experience, deep knowledge of leisure centre operations and a track record of managing in a busy wet/dry leisure centre.
In return, we offer:
- 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, 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.
