Applications are now open for over 40 new jobs, as Manchester gets ready for the re-opening of two well loved leisure centres after a huge investment from Manchester City Council.

GLL, the UK’s leading leisure social enterprise manages 23 leisure facilities in Manchester on behalf of MCRactive. The new roles are the result of the council’s ongoing £100m investment into leisure across Manchester.

The 40 permanent jobs will be based at the brand new Abraham Moss Library & Leisure Centre in Crumpsall and Manchester Aquatics Centre which will re-open after major refurbishment. Both centres are due to re-open in summer 2023 and in late 2023 the opening of the extension to Hough End Leisure Centre will create further new jobs.

Councillor John Hacking, Executive Member for Skills, Employment and Leisure at Manchester City Council said: "The creation of more than 40 new jobs by our strategic partner GLL is the result of the council's ongoing investment into leisure centres in Manchester. Our residents will not only have modern and accessible facilities to use when this investment is complete, it is also helping to grow the local economy and supporting  people into employment in their local community."

Ian Harkins, Head of Service for GLL in Manchester said: "The creation of these jobs will be really important in helping us to promote better health and wellbeing to more people across the city.

"Investment in health and wellbeing is a vital component of the development of any modern city. Working closely with MCRactive and other key strategic stakeholders we are excited to be a part of the contribution to improved physical and mental health."

He added that existing staff would also be given the opportunity to develop their skills.

"There is a huge range of rewarding careers in GLL and really exciting opportunities for staff to develop and progress," he said.

Roles on offer include Assistant Managers, Duty Managers, Lifeguards, Cleaners,  and Leisure Team members.
