We are now seeking a Health and Fitness manager for the latest addition to our extensive range of sport and fitness facilities.
These are exciting times for sport and physical activity at Loughborough University and we are looking for an ambitious individual to lead a team that creates a vibrant and inspirational venue for our students and the wider community to enjoy and benefit from the widest possible range of health and fitness opportunities. Providing inspiration and service excellence that meets the needs of our customers will be at the heart of everything you do.
If successful you will have an all too rare opportunity to shape the look and feel of the new facility during the later stages of its construction.
You will also be an important part of our ambition to provide world class opportunities across a broad range of sport and physical activity for all of our students. This is much more than a facility manager role as you will be expected to make a significant contribution to a broader team which is focussed on achieving our extraordinary target of having 75% of all of our students physically active at least 3 times a week.
You will have relevant professional experience, knowledge and enthusiasm in the management and leadership of teams and the health and fitness market, where you should also be able to demonstrate a track record of innovation and success.
