If you have a genuine passion for supporting people, join us as an Health Referral Manager at Kings Hall Leisure Centre in Hackney, East London 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 committed to improving the lives of the communities that we serve.

Healthier Together Hackney is our health referral scheme, encompassing physical activity referral and tier 2 weight management programme designed to support a wide range of individuals with varying medical conditions to become more physically active or to better manage their weight. NHS patients can be referred for many reasons - from diabetes and heart disease to depression, arthritis or obesity. Rehabilitation, managing a medical condition or weight loss are just the start. As an Exercise Referral Manager, you'll help us to educate people in changing their entire lifestyle.

As an Health Referral Manager you'll manage the Healthier Together Hackney programme across the Hackney partnership, acting as a main point of contact between commissioners, schemes and centres. You will need to ensure that the schemes are as up to date as possible with current local and national guidelines and meet the need of the local community. You'll also maintain a central referral database and feed patient information back to key stakeholders. Additionally you'll ensure that key performance indicators are met, evaluated and reported on in line with the commissioners' requirements.

Ideally, we're looking for an experienced Health Referral Manager. If you are 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 GP Referral and experience of delivering lifestyle and weight management interventions too.

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 this sounds like you, apply now.

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.
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.
