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. 

Better Extreme is a brand new venture by GLL. We're looking for Extreme Sports Assistants to help run Barking Sporthouse and Gym in Dagenham, East London one of the most exciting new facilities for extreme sports. We cover a range of extreme sports such as BMXing, skateboarding, inline skating, scootering and climbing so we're looking for an Assistant with a passion for these sports to work in this truly exciting environment.

Working closely with the Extreme Sports and Duty Managers, you'll ensure that the Park runs smoothly on a day-to-day basis by overseeing the operational processes such as reception, stock control, sales and promotions - as well as achieving financial and sales targets. You'll be able to relate to our customers and your energy and enthusiasm will ensure they have the most enjoyable time possible as well as staying safe. You'll be working with a team of like-minded people and encouraged to develop your ideas to help more people become active in non-traditional sports.

You'll be motivated and ambitious - always looking for the next challenge. You'll ideally have some customer-facing experience, but being an excellent communicator and driven in your work will also stand you in good stead. You will need to have good IT skills and be able to adhere to stringent health and safety requirements. As well as demonstrating your knowledge of extreme sports, you'll show a commitment to learn and develop within the team and in return, we'll help you to develop your career with us.

In return, we offer:

  • Pension
  • Discounted membership at our leisure centres
  • Career pathways
  • Ongoing training and development
