Have you had to leave a high-profile well-paid job in sport recently? *coughs* It’s bad times but don’t despair. If you have experience in sports and transferable skills then there will be a leisure job for you, even if you were, for example, as high-up as the manager of the England football team.
You may want to take a break for a while, maybe to refresh your mind and body, before you get stuck back in to sports and leisure again, but rest assured, 4Leisure Recruitment are here to help.
Here are four leisure jobs which could be a great fit for you…..
General Manager for a leisure complex
If you are confident in managing a team of high-performing people, have steely determination, and are able to inspire and lead, then maybe you could be a general manager for a leading leisure brand at their complex in the Bedfordshire/Buckinghamshire/Hertfordshire area.
With a salary of £40,000 – £45,000 and an achievable bonus package, this is not to be sniffed at. It might be less than you’re used to, but it’s working for a company with room for development and you won’t have the press on your doorstep if you slip up occasionally. Hopefully.
How about being a sales manager?
Are you an inspirational leader who can get the best from your team? Then come and work somewhere a bit more scenic, and away from the spotlight of London. A Dorset-based health and fitness provider is seeking a tenacious sales manager to join their team.
Your job is to increase footfall and convert leads into new memberships by innovative marketing and inspiring your sales staff. It requires some evenings and weekend working, but you can do this in the very nice high-end facility rather than facing the wind and rain in a dugout in some European town.
Fancy this one? There is more information at http://www.4leisurerecruitment.co.uk/jobs/dorset/health-fitness/sales-manager/2166/
If you can swim 50 metres in less than 60 seconds, jump or dive deep in to the water, and have a passion for keeping people of all ages safe and sound, then you can take your NPLQ and be a lifeguard. Lifeguarding gets a bad rep sometimes but I don’t really know why. It’s a great job that teaches you the basics you will need for working in the leisure industry, and often provides flexible work you can do in on evenings and weekends, or just in the summer, or off-season if you like. In fact, why not do it anyway and you can work it around another job for that bit of extra cash? Just don’t be trying to sell on pool noodles for profit to undercover reporters or you might find yourself back in the job centre.

Beauty Brand Ambassador
If you’re available for ongoing work immediately (and a little bird told me that you are), then we are looking for beauty brand ambassadors. We need people with a passion for the beauty industry, with outgoing personalities, and exceptional customer service and communication skills. I mean, you have experience dealing with the press, right? We offer weekly pay and the opportunity to work with some luxury cosmetic and perfume brands. It might be a bit different to the sales patter that you’re known for, but if you have retail experience, then please consider this.
We are currently recruiting for Beauty Brand Ambassadors in Newbury, and all over greater London http://www.4leisurerecruitment.co.uk/jobs/berkshire/spa-beauty/beauty-brand-ambassador/2167/
If you’re looking for a new job in leisure, then please do get in touch
We’re here Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm on 01895 450640 or on email 24/7 firstname.lastname@example.org
All the best for the future in finding your next job. Just try to keep hold of that one for longer, eh?
