GLL are recruiting for Fitness Manager to work in our Better facilities across Belfast, Northern Ireland. If you have the talent and ambition to be a Fitness Manager, there has never been a more exciting time to progress with GLL in Belfast. This is more than a Fitness Manager role - its a career.

As part of our opening team, these roles offer a unique opportunity to manage the business from its early stages as part of a UK-wide organisation that supports and promotes leisure and sport to all ages and abilities - from children's swimming lessons to health intervention programmes and even sponsorship of future Olympic medal winners. Reporting to the General Manager, you'll be responsible for delivering and developing a high-quality service and a successful business model. You'll work closely with the General Manager and have all the support of our regional team of experts to assist in the setting up of a successful pre-sale and mobilisation of this new facility.

In addition to a proven track record in managing a busy leisure centre, you'll have the necessary operational qualifications such as Fitness Instructor level 2, Group Exercise/Fitness Class Instructor and ideally a Level 3-4 leisure-related qualification. You'll have a demonstrable track record in providing a range of fitness services which challenge and excite members in a safe working environment. You will also need experience of delivering a range of exercise programmes and excellent customer service that retains and attracts new members. It goes without saying that you'll be a strong people manager and have the business acumen necessary to plan and improve the products and services for our community to ensure Better Gym Church Lane becomes a success.

Leisure Transformation will see first class centres being built which are state of the art and offer access for all. This will include some unique and new products to our portfolio which will change the face of leisure in the city. Investment will also continue in existing centres so that we can deliver excellent customer service and provide a warm welcome to local communities and visitors from far and wide.

GLL is a charitable social enterprise that works in partnership with the Council to operate and run the city's leisure centres under the Better brand. With over 25 years experience operating over 250 leisure facilities we are the UK's leading leisure trust.

As a not for profit organisation, we reinvest all profits back into the community by developing staff, investing in leisure centres, supporting young athletes and increasing participation in sport for young and old. Our aim is simple. We want to get more people, more active, more often.

We deliver our service in line with our four company values; Better Service, Better People, Better Communities and Better Business.

We offer a range of benefits that you'd expect from the UK's largest leisure provider:
- Pension schemes
- Ride to work scheme
- Discounted membership at our leisure centres
- The opportunity to join the GLL Society and have a say in how we're run plus associated social events
- Career pathways
- Ongoing training and development to help you to be the best

If you feel your experience matches this role, apply now.

All pay rates are subject to skills, experience, qualifications and location.

To be shortlisted for the role, internal applicants will need to demonstrate their commitment to GLL by becoming a Society member where eligible.
