Are you ready to make a real difference in the Sports, Leisure, and Fitness industry? Join the dynamic team at Fusion, a Charity driven by our commitment to bringing health and well-being to communities across the UK. As a registered charity, our mission goes beyond profit – we strive to create a lasting impact and are proud of the legacy we have already built. 

As a General Manager, you will be the driving force behind our exceptional service and community engagement. Leading your team with passion and dedication, you'll ensure outstanding experiences for the communities we serve. You'll be responsible for the day-to-day management of the Centre, delivering excellent service, maintaining cost-effective operations, and upholding our highest standards at all times. In addition, your expertise will drive membership sales and generate secondary revenue streams, securing our long-term financial sustainability. 

At Fusion, we value problem-solving and analytical skills, making them essential qualities for our General Managers. With significant experience in a similar role within the leisure or hospitality sector, you'll bring a deep understanding of financial planning and budget management. Your "make it happen" attitude and relentless pursuit of excellence will inspire your team to be their best. 

While CIMSPA membership is desirable, it's not essential. We believe in the power of continuous learning and growth, offering sector-leading training to our valued team members. 

Key Responsibilities: 

  • Lead your team in delivering outstanding service to our communities and partners

  • Drive profitability by making strategic management and “big picture” decisions
  • Establish and maintain effective controls, covering financial, non-financial, and health and safety aspects of the business
  • Lead and develop a cohesive Centre Management Team, supporting their growth and performance
  • Lead the local implementation of our people strategy, embedding effective recruitment, people management, and development strategies, fostering a culture of engagement and retention
  • Cultivate strong relationships with customers, third parties and clients ensuring exceptional service delivery
  • Foster a culture of safety, health and well-being across all aspects of your facility, products, team and community. 

We care about our team members and offer a range of non-contractual benefits: 

  • Generous holiday allowance 
  • Manager's Pension Scheme 
  • Complimentary Gym & Swim membership at Fusion centres for you and all members of your household 
  • Free Eye tests
