Extreme Sports Assistants – Kidbrooke
Better Extreme is a brand new venture by GLL. We're looking for Extreme Sports Assistants to help run the climbing wall area at Sutcliffe Park Athletics track in Kidbrooke, South East London, one of the most exciting new facilities for extreme sports. We cover a range of extreme sports and are looking for assistants with a passion for climbing to work in this truly exciting environment.
Working closely with the Extreme Sports and Duty Managers, you'll ensure that the Park runs smoothly on a day-to-day basis by overseeing the operational processes such as reception, stock control, sales and promotions - as well as achieving financial and sales targets. You'll be able to relate to our customers and your energy and enthusiasm will ensure they have the most enjoyable time possible as well as staying safe. You'll be working with a team of like-minded people and encouraged to develop your ideas to help more people become active in non-traditional sports.
You'll be motivated and ambitious - always looking for the next challenge. You'll ideally have some climbing and customer-facing experience, but being an excellent communicator and driven in your work will also stand you in good stead. You will need to have good IT skills and be able to adhere to stringent health and safety requirements. As well as demonstrating your knowledge of extreme sports, you'll show a commitment to learn and develop within the team and in return, we'll help you to develop your career with us.
In return, we offer a range of benefits that you'd expect from the UK's largest leisure provider:
• Pension schemes
• Discounted membership at our leisure centres
• Career pathways
• Ongoing training and development to help you to be the best
