The University of Manchester has over 16,000 students and staff taking part in organised sport and physical activity through the University. The University recognises the importance of an active lifestyle in both the experiences that these opportunities provide our audiences as well as the positive impact that they have on their wellbeing.

Delivery of our sport and physical activity strategy is through UoM Sport which is based across our campuses primarily in Fallowfield at the Armitage Sports Centre and in Manchester University Students’ Union on Oxford Road. Our activities take place across the city utilising a range of city facilities in supporting our community being active and promoting physical activity opportunities through our facilities and programmes.

The university therefore is looking to appoint a highly motivated and enthusiastic person to supervise and coordinate the work of the health and fitness team (fitness & class instructors) and delivery of an excellent health and fitness offer within our facilities.

Applicants should possess a Level 3 fitness qualification or related subject (or equivalent) with proven success & experience of working within a health and fitness environment with knowledge of group exercise class programming. Skills and experience must also include the ability to use software packages & leisure / member management systems.

Applicants will be required to work on a fixed shift pattern which includes daytime evenings and weekends which includes key holder responsibilities.

This role is customer facing and therefore is either mostly or entirely campus based without the opportunity for hybrid working.

As an equal opportunities employer we welcome applicants from all sections of the community regardless of age, sex, gender (or gender identity), ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation and transgender status.  All appointments are made on merit.
