 So as you can see, exciting times ahead!

Who are we?

Our team support, guide and motivate people and communities to get healthy and be active and we want YOU to become part of this fantastic team.

The Role

We are looking for an outstanding person to join and lead our gymnastics team, in the role of Gymnastics Programme Manager. Our programme incorporates baby soft play and preschool through to advanced gymnastics so the successful candidate should have experience of all elements of recreational gymnastics.

As Gymnastics Programme Manager you will have a proven track record in the recruitment, training and development of gymnastics instructors.
