Your role

The BeWell team are committed to support the health and wellbeing of our residents across the Wigan Borough. Whether this be supporting our youngest residents embark on their first swimming lesson, supporting individuals and community groups with existing exercise and wellbeing programmes, or welcoming them to our outdoor recreational parks and facilities. We pride ourselves on offering an extensive and diverse range of activity to support our residents.

You will be responsible for the operational management of the BeWell leisure sites within your portfolio and will also be a key member of the wider Sport, Leisure and Wellbeing management team.

You will at times be required to work evenings, weekends, and unsociable hours in order to ensure all aspects of the business are effectively managed. This could include working on shift at any leisure facility to ensure service delivery is maintained to prevent any impact to our residents and customers.

About us:

Wigan Council has been voted ‘Council of the Year’ at the iESE Public Sector Transformation Awards and has recently published The Deal 2030, our ambitious plan for our borough. We are signed up to the Greater Manchester Continuous Service Commitment ensuring that your service will be continuous or 'unbroken' between the supporting organisations.
