GLL is hiring an Aquatics Project Manager based at the iconic Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in East London. Aquatics is a growing area of business for us here at GLL, leading to us being the largest operator of swimming pools in the UK. We now teach over 100,000 pupils to swim each week and have 14 million swim visits across our pools per year. Due the success of our Aquatics product, we're growing our team and are looking for a passionate Aquatics Project Manager to join us at this exciting time.
The Aquatics Project Manager will manage and deliver key projects related to the growth of both participation and income at GLL facilities around the UK. Projects could include anything from pool activity programming to development and preparation of new aquatics products along with the associated marketing, roll out and staff training. Overseeing the projects from start to finish, this varied role will see you involved in everything from traditional project management through to communication, performance monitoring, customer service and business development. Working closely with the wider Aquatics team and reporting into the Senior Aquatics Manager, you'll research and become familiar with the needs of our customers and area demographics enabling you to make your projects a success. Not all factors of project success will be in your control, but your focus and management will minimise any risks and encourage more people to swim regularly.
Your knowledge and experience in leisure and/or aquatics management will have given you excellent communication skills and allow you to develop strong relationships around the business which will be key as there will be significant travel to face-to-face meetings. Organised and with a results-driven approach, you'll plan and review projects throughout their lifecycle, prepare basic business plans and reports and ensure you involve the right people at the right time. This is an excellent opportunity to develop and grow your career with the UK's largest leisure operator and to have a positive impact on aquatics-based sport, creating healthier lifestyles and better futures for the communities that we work within and better pathways for up-and-coming sportspeople.
