My client is looking for an experienced Sales and Marketing Manager to manage a small team and grow the membership base.

To get offered the job you'll have to be passionate about health and fitness and sport in general, and someone who'll thrive working in a dynamic and fast paced environment. You will be a vital member of the management team. Your role is to combine your skills and passion for fitness, with your customer service and sales and marketing techniques to attract and retain members. You will be proactive, organised and driven to achieve goals. With a detailed understanding of our product, the local market and how best to achieve membership targets, you will provide direction and manage the Membership Advisors to motivate them to be successful and achieve their targets. Plus you will work closely with the Reception team to generate leads and provide the best possible experience for all visitors.

Why am I here?

3 To continually improve your knowledge by keeping up to date with industry trends and seek further training and guidance from GM, Regional Sales Manager and National Support Departments.
4 To be an active member of the team that uses the facilities and develops product knowledge to be able to answer member queries where possible.

Ideally we are looking for candidates from within the health and fitness industry but we will consider people from other backgrounds as long as they have managed teams through their daily KPI's and have consistently hit monthly targets. We are looking for someone who has experience of writing and implementing a 30, 60, 90 day marketing plan. You will need to be confident in approaching corporate and premium companies to lead generate and set up corporate memberships, and then account managing the corporate accounts.

We know that these are much sought after opportunities so we will only be able to get in touch with candidates who really do meet the above criteria. You will be working a variety of shifts including weekends, and benefits of the job include free gym membership for you and your immediate family, and the potential to earn lots of commission!!!

If you do meet the criteria then we'll be in touch straight away to arrange an immediate interview.
