Job sector: leisure centre
Job description:


A unique opportunity to help drive forward the UK’s first Lifestyle Medicine Centre and Health-Gym in Summertown, Oxford

We are recruiting for a Centre Manager to lead the team who are setting a new standard for the delivery of personalised health and wellbeing services in the UK. Viavi:be’s unique Centre focusses on delivering definitive health and wellbeing outcomes to clients with unparalleled efficiency and exemplary service.

The approach is based on medical science under the expertise of leading Harley Street clinicians who have unparalleled experience in Lifestyle and Functional Medicine.

As Centre Manager you will drive the commercial success of the centre using your creativity and tenacity to unlock opportunities to profile the Centre and its services to local groups, associations and the public at large and ensure that sales targets are achieved in both primary and secondary spend. Secondary spend is a key area and includes a range of superb lifestyle medicine tests such as DNA, Food Intolerance, Stress Resilience and Sleep Recovery.

You will work with a high performing team to create an environment where clients experience consistently exceptional service, feel at ease and energised in the space and are supported to achieve their goals. You will lead by example and will yourself provide a level of support to clients but the majority of this will be delivered by your colleagues.

You must have a keen interest in health and wellbeing in its broadest sense but you do not necessarily have to be technically qualified in health and fitness.

We will provide you with the training you need to succeed but you will need to be ‘super-motivated’, a strong leader, have real empathy and great communication skills. As a manager, you will need to demonstrate your maturity, an ability to work independently and a desire to achieve commercial success each and every day.

Salary and benefits

You will receive the job description and more information on our competitive package and in-house training programme on application.
