The successful candidate will join the highly effective team selling Fit&Well memberships and Swim School memberships primarily at The John Warner Sports Centre in Hoddesdon, as well as The Laura Trott Leisure Centre in Cheshunt. Main responsibilities will include:
- Selling Fitness and Swim memberships, according to monthly sales targets

The successful applicant will ideally have a sales background in the leisure industry or in business to business (B2B) sales or business to customer (B2C) sales in other sectors. Applications will also be considered from people who have a strong customer service background without direct sales experience and ideally from a leisure environment. Candidates must have GCSE qualifications in Maths & English or equivalent, have excellent communication skills and be computer literate. The ability to converse at ease with members of the public and provide advice in fluent English is essential in the role, as is daily access to a vehicle and a full driving license.

This role requires an enhanced disclosure and barring service check as it is working with children or vulnerable clients. We are committed to safer recruitment, safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults. We expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
The benefits package includes generous leave entitlement, a full training and development programme, membership of the Local Government Pension Scheme and free membership to the Council’s local leisure centres, which includes free access to gyms, swimming pools, fitness classes, racket sport sessions, a health suite and a range of generous discounts across other leisure and culture services.
