Good IT, literacy, numerical and communication skills are vital for this role - combined with the ability to quickly get up to speed on our services and systems. You'll have experience of finding information and cash handling as well as a can-do attitude. Thriving in a team and learning new skills, you'll confidently deal with customers with tact and sensitivity too. A strong people manager, you'll motive and inspire the team to achieve targets and key performance indicators.

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

  • 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
