  • Resolving member queries

Resourceful and target driven, the ability to generate and follow up leads is essential. Excellent attention to detail is required alongside the ability to make and maintain accurate records. A Level 2 or above fitness qualification would be desirable, but in the absence of this a demonstrable passion for fitness is essential and experience of working in the Leisure & Fitness industry and Sales would be a real advantage.

Applicants will need to be presentable with excellent interpersonal skills, strong customer focus and the ability to win trust and confidence. A sense of humour and an out-going, robust disposition is also essential. A good standard of education (GCSEs or equivalent) and Microsoft Office skills (Excel, Word and Outlook) are also required.
