Job description:
This is a truly unique opportunity for an experienced Events Assistant Manager to work at the Copper Box Arena on Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park near Stratford, East London which has become one of the most iconic venues in the UK following the London Olympics and Paralympics.

The Copper Box Arena is a major events venue and London's third largest indoor arena with a capacity of 7,500 spectators, hosting everything from international sporting events, to concerts, awards ceremonies, product launches and local community events. We're proud to host high-profile guests such as royalty, entertainment professionals and the sporting elite, but what makes us unique is that we're also an important hub for the community; we have over 2,000 prepaid members of our gym and fitness facilities and a number of local schools use the arena for everything from badminton to volleyball, netball and basketball.

Your role is to ensure that the venue delivers high-quality events and creates a customer and spectator experience that's second-to-none. This will include ensuring that your client, the event organiser, gets an excellent service and you work with them and all third party stakeholders to smoothly and proactively plan the event. You will also ensure that you work with our specialist contractors to deliver safe events and that all aspects of health, safety and operational delivery is compliant and managed to an excellent standard. Early planning is key, so you must have great organisational and communication skills.

With a venue that's in the spotlight as much as this, you'll never sit on your laurels and will continually monitor and review the standard of events as well as acting on customer feedback. This is a very hands-on role that will often be high pressured; you'll deal with everyone from the General Manager of the venue to event clients and key stakeholders including the London Legacy Development Corporation. You'll be responsible for everything from promoting events, managing budgets and ensuring that all health, safety and operational procedures are adhered to.
As you'll provide the overall leadership and management of the events at the Copper Box Arena, you'll have proven experience of managing and running events at a high-profile venue, ideally with an international and/or sporting element. You'll be comfortable both managing and delegating to stakeholders at all levels from senior personnel and head office to your local venue support team and external contractors. A passion for sport and the confidence to deal with a range a people at all levels will stand you in good stead for this role.

In return, 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 have the passion and skills for this role, then apply now.

We're looking for experienced Duty Managers or ambitious and talented Senior Recreation Assistants who are passionate about the leisure industry.

Then, once the day is in full swing, you'll ensure it's all running as it should be - handling customer queries, managing your team and ensuring the successful operation of the gym, pool and other facilities.

£20,848.to £22,930
Job description:
GLL is looking for a part time (30 hours per week) Health Referral Facilitator to work across our Centres in Bath and North East Somerset.

If you have a genuine passion for supporting people, join us as an Exercise Referral Instructor and help to improve people's level of fitness, health - and ultimately, quality of life. GLL is a charitable social enterprise and the UK's largest leisure provider, partnering with local authorities to run leisure centres, swimming pools and world-class sporting venues. As a not-for-profit organisation, we're different. Reinvesting back into our facilities, communities and people, we're growing - and committed to developing the skills of our 'Healthwise' Exercise Referral Instructors too, through accredited and on-the-job training.

Healthwise is our GP Referral Scheme, designed to support a wide range of people. NHS patients can be referred for many reasons - from diabetes and heart disease to depression, dementia or post-operative recovery. Rehabilitation or weight loss are just the start. As an Exercise Referral Instructor, you'll help us to educate people in changing their entire lifestyle.

It all begins with an assessment. People can be nervous, so you'll need a patient, calm approach that puts them at ease in the gym environment. After identifying their needs, you'll then demonstrate the equipment and design a bespoke programme, from simple exercises to group classes. Naturally, you'll chart their progress too - taking measurements, discussing how they're getting on and showing just how far they've come. Rather than short term results, your focus will be on helping people to gain the tools and confidence they need to take responsibility for their own body and health.

Ideally, we're looking for an experienced Exercise Referrer, but the role would suit Personal Trainers too - people inspired by the chance to make a difference (and enjoy a regular wage, too). If you're a fitness professional or someone with an academic background in a sporting discipline and relevant vocational experience who's confident, sensitive and able to inspire a wide range of people - often with low fitness and confidence levels - this is for you. That means you'll need to be REPS registered with an NVQ Level 3 Fitness Instructor, Level 3 Exercise Referral qualification (essential) and experience of delivering lifestyle interventions too.

Few fitness careers are as rewarding as this. So if you're motivated to progress your career with an organisation that improves lives, join us and enjoy great benefits including opportunities to work across various locations, flexible hours, a uniform and discounted membership at all our leisure centres.

If you have the passion and skills for this role, then apply now.

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

The welfare and safety of the children in our care is of the utmost importance to us at GLL. We follow safer recruitment procedures to ensure that our staff are checked and appropriate to work with children and young people. Therefore we'll require you to complete an enhance DBS check before you will be allowed to start work.

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

Your own development is just as important, as we'll train you to sharpen your skills in this diverse Duty Manager role.

If you're a fast-thinker who's calm under pressure, responsible and a natural with people from all walks of life, this is your chance to progress as a Duty Manager. We also look for integrity, a can-do attitude, health and safety knowledge, and a customer service focus, combined with relevant professional qualifications such as NPLQ, PPO (desirable), Pool Management Qualification, FAAW. From introducing a table tennis club and supporting disabled groups, to organising charity swimathons with celebrity guests, we've introduced all sorts of initiatives. So, if you've an idea and the drive to improve things even further, we'll listen.

In return, 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

Pool safety can't be underestimated - and neither can the responsibility that comes with this vital lifeguarding role. Our scale means we can also offer scope to progress, and variety like nowhere else - from regular pool rotations, supervising and cleaning the pool area, to setting up equipment and delivering a first-class customer service when dealing with queries. Do your job well, and there shouldn't ever be an emergency. But if the unexpected should happen, you'll be equipped with the skills to potentially save a life.

If you're calm under pressure, highly responsible and a natural with people from all walks of life, this is your chance to develop as a Lifeguard. We look for integrity, a can-do attitude and a real focus on customer service. Passion and personality will also stand you in good stead, combined with knowledge of health and safety legislation and a National Pool Lifeguard Qualification. A great team player, you'll make sure our customers have the best possible experience - in terms of enjoyment, safety and hygiene.

GLL is looking for Recreation Assistants to work at Jesus Green Lido in Cambridge, Cambridgeshire on a 5 months fixed term contract. If you have the talent and ambition to join us as a Lifeguard, there's never been a more exciting time to progress with a sector leader. This is more than a Lifeguard job - it's a career. Professional development is just the start. To ensure you stay at the top of your game, we provide training with practical and theory elements too.

Pool safety can't be underestimated - and neither can the responsibility that comes with this vital lifeguarding role. Our scale means we can also offer scope to progress, and variety like nowhere else - from regular pool rotations, supervising and cleaning the pool area, to setting up equipment and delivering a first-class customer service when dealing with queries. Do your job well, and there shouldn't ever be an emergency. But if the unexpected should happen, you'll be equipped with the skills to potentially save a life.

If you're calm under pressure, highly responsible and a natural with people from all walks of life, this is your chance to develop as a Lifeguard. We look for integrity, a can-do attitude and a real focus on customer service. Passion and personality will also stand you in good stead, combined with knowledge of health and safety legislation and a National Pool Lifeguard Qualification. A great team player, you'll make sure our customers have the best possible experience - in terms of enjoyment, safety and hygiene.

GLL is looking for Recreation Assistants to work at Dorcan Recreation Complex in Swindon, Wiltshire. If you have the talent and ambition to join us as a Lifeguard, there's never been a more exciting time to progress with a sector leader. This is more than a Lifeguard job - it's a career. Professional development is just the start. To ensure you stay at the top of your game, we provide training with practical and theory elements too.

Pool safety can't be underestimated - and neither can the responsibility that comes with this vital lifeguarding role. Our scale means we can also offer scope to progress, and variety like nowhere else - from regular pool rotations, supervising and cleaning the pool area, to setting up equipment and delivering a first-class customer service when dealing with queries. Do your job well, and there shouldn't ever be an emergency. But if the unexpected should happen, you'll be equipped with the skills to potentially save a life.

If you're calm under pressure, highly responsible and a natural with people from all walks of life, this is your chance to develop as a Lifeguard. We look for integrity, a can-do attitude and a real focus on customer service. Passion and personality will also stand you in good stead, combined with knowledge of health and safety legislation and a National Pool Lifeguard Qualification.

As Application Support Analyst, you'll deliver essential elements of the project plan such as mapping, configuration, build, training, roll-out, report building and 1st line support. The database is already in use in one location, therefore you'll take learnings from this to ensure successful roll out in the other locations.

You'll ensure the database is integrated as a core application for the Application Support team.

Naturally you'll be technically-minded, but you'll also understand the needs of your non-technical colleagues and be able to translate their requirements to be able to get the most out of the system (Tiara 9). Your patience and communication skills will be useful for providing training to others who may not have used a database or online booking system before. You should have worked in an IT department doing a similar role and project planning / management experience would give you a distinct advantage. This is an IT role with a difference as your work will have a major impact on those with poor health.

Job description:
GLL is looking for Recreation Assistants to work at Copthall Leisure Centre in Barnet, North West London. If you have the talent and ambition to join us as a Lifeguard, there's never been a more exciting time to progress with a sector leader. This is more than a Lifeguard job - it's a career. Professional development is just the start. To ensure you stay at the top of your game, we provide training with practical and theory elements too.

Pool safety can't be underestimated - and neither can the responsibility that comes with this vital lifeguarding role. Our scale means we can also offer scope to progress, and variety like nowhere else - from regular pool rotations, supervising and cleaning the pool area, to setting up equipment and delivering a first-class customer service when dealing with queries. Do your job well, and there shouldn't ever be an emergency. But if the unexpected should happen, you'll be equipped with the skills to potentially save a life.

If you're calm under pressure, highly responsible and a natural with people from all walks of life, this is your chance to develop as a Lifeguard. We look for integrity, a can-do attitude and a real focus on customer service. Passion and personality will also stand you in good stead, combined with knowledge of health and safety legislation and a National Pool Lifeguard Qualification. A great team player, you'll make sure our customers have the best possible experience - in terms of enjoyment, safety and hygiene.

In return, we offer a range of benefits that you'd expect from the UK's largest leisure provider:
- Pension Schemes
- Discounted membership at our leisure centres
- Career pathways
- Ongoing training and development to help you to be the best

If you think you'd be a good fit for 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.
