Able to think on your feet, you'll also confidently respond to all sorts of issues that arise in a busy centre. Planning and communication skills will be vital too, as you build relationships with contractors, colleagues and communities. You'll have knowledge of leisure operations and a track record of managing in a busy wet/dry leisure centre. A NPLQ qualification would be preferable however training will be provided for this qualifation.

In return, we offer a range of benefits that you'd expect from the UK's largest leisure provider:
