You will also be a confident IT user with an excellent level of proficiency and experience in a range of IT systems.

You will be friendly, approachable, enthusiastic, energetic, and self-motivated in order to meet the varying demands of a school and community use facility. You will have at least 1 years’ experience of teaching a variety of exercise classes, and practical gym experience.
