This is an exciting new role and comes as a result of the development and extension of the gym at West Wight Sports & Community Centre. The extended gym is due to open at the end of July 2019. We are looking to recruit a supervisor who can assist the Centre Manager in the planning of the opening and subsequent operation of the gym and then take on the supervisory role from the day the gym opens.

The successful applicant will be expected to coordinate all the ‘dryside’ fitness activities at WWSCC but with a particular emphasis on the newly extended gym.

You will be expected to develop an inclusive environment which supports any member of our community to engage in physical activity and to support their health and well-being. 

You will be expected to work closely with all our fitness instructors, other staff and volunteers to help embed a supportive culture of physical health and well-being for all within the Centre.

Your day to day work will mainly be based within the gym where you will be required to undertake gym inductions and refreshers, ensure the gym is always safe and clean and ensure gym users have adequate and appropriate motivational support at all times.

You will be expected to ensure all relevant paper work relating to gym users is up–to date and retained within all legal constraints.

You will line manage the team of fitness and gym instructors

You will report to the Centre Assistant Manager and have regular meetings with both the Assistant and Centre Manager.

You will be expected to support a growth in gym usage identified within the business case for the extension and to recognise that the financial contribution made by the gym is integral to the future sustainability of WWSCC.

As a part of a busy community facility, you will also be required to undertake any other duties as may be required from time to time.
