General Manager - Trafford
Thank you so much for your interest in the role of General Manager with Trafford Leisure. It is an incredibly exciting time to join the company, as leisure in Trafford is truly transforming. There is large scale investment, upwards of £60 million; coming into the portfolio of centres ran by Trafford Leisure over the next five years.
Our strategy will see our customer put firmly at the heart of every business decision. This much needed investment aims to secure modern fit-for-purpose facilities that ensure greater uptake and spend per visit, to enable Trafford Leisure to be viable and profitable whilst delivering community benefit in the long term.
The investment is part of a borough wide strategy by Trafford Council and will see levels of physical activity increase to help secure the improved health and wellbeing outcomes for our local Trafford people.
Our first phase of investment starts with Urmston. A planning application for the significant refurbishment of Urmston Leisure has been approved and work will start in Spring 2019 with completion in early 2020.
Further investment is then planned for two new leisure centres in Altrincham and Stretford. The latter being designed for the local community first and then to accommodate a whole new student market generated from the inception of a brand new specialist university campus on the adjacent site. UA92 will present an exciting opportunity for Trafford Leisure to grow the business with an influx of circa 6,000 students in the local community over time. Development options are still being considered for Sale which would then complete the transformation of the four main centres.
So as you can see, exciting times ahead!
