We are passionate about the nurturing and development of our biggest asset – our staff, and as such we offer a variety of roles with fantastic developmental opportunities to progress your career along with a number of additional benefits. We serve a diverse community and as such we are looking for enthusiastic individuals and encourage applications from all.
As an employee of Trafford Leisure, you will benefit from a fully comprehensive Simply Health plan which allows you to claim money back from your everyday health costs.

We have a referral policy in place for those members of staff, who through word of mouth help us recruit into positions within our company. If you refer someone through your network who is subsequently employed at Trafford Leisure past their probation period, you may be eligible for an incentive payment (this will depend on the role of the new recruit).
We are committed to getting the residents of Trafford to ‘move more everyday’ and this is not limited to our customers. You will receive a Staff membership which will grant you access to all of our sites, where you can attend our pools, gyms, and fitness classes, and golf at Altrincham Golf Course and Driving Range free of charge.
We also offer a free membership to a member of your family, granted you live with them, where they can also have access to the Trafford Leisure facilities. Further to this, we also offer discounted rates on block bookings, birthday parties and swimming/gymnastics lessons.
Once a year, all 350+ of us gather for an evening of celebration of our staff’s hard work throughout the year for our staff awards.
During this, we celebrate, reward, and recognise the commitment and dedication of the people working for Trafford Leisure.
