GLL is looking for an Assistant Manager based at Newquay Leisure World, Cornwall.


If you have the passion, talent and ambition to be an Assistant Manager at a thriving and fun centre offering trampolining, soft play, leisure pool as well as fitness swimming, gym and classes, there's never been a more exciting time to progress with GLL. This is more than a management role - it's a career. Supporting the smooth running of a leisure centre, you'll ensure the health, safety and enjoyment of customers and colleagues alike.

There's no such thing as a typical day as an Assistant Manager. That's what makes this hands-on role so special. Here, you could be doing anything from welcoming new staff and dealing with customers to updating senior management and checking everything is running as it should. Essentially, you'll be inspiring your team to be the best they can be, hit targets and keep each and every customer happy.


As an Assistant Manager, you'll need to be on the ball with all aspects of your centre, location and the leisure industry as a whole - from managing teams to consumer trends. So, if you're ready to go the extra mile, in return, we'll develop and train you to sharpen your skills in this diverse Assistant Manager role. Naturally a knowledge and passion for fitness as well as the focus and dynamism needed for sales will be of utmost importance.

Highly organised with budgeting skills and a can-do attitude, you'll be a fast learner who's focused on customer care. Able to think on your feet, you'll also confidently respond to all sorts of issues that arise in a busy centre. Planning and communication skills will be vital too, as you build relationships with contractors, colleagues and communities. You'll have knowledge of leisure operations, and a track record of managing in a busy wet/dry leisure centre.

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

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.

GLL is an equal opportunities employer.
