What we are looking for

Spa Managers
A role that's about much more than looking after the team and Spa; you'll make sure we have the right marketing and sales ethos in place to achieve targets. You'll also be responsible for stock control and admin reports and, yes, even carry out beauty treatments. Put simply, life as a Spa Manager is different every day. Indeed, you'll find yourself forever learning useful new skills. Qualified to NVQ Level 2/3 or with an ITEC or equivalent in Beauty Therapy, you'll need great people management skills, a proactive approach and the tact to deal with issues politely and efficiently.

Spa Therapists
Passionate about offering a complete pampering service? Got what it takes to make our members feel totally indulged and relaxed? If you're a versatile beauty therapist with great people skills and some retail experience, this could be your ideal next move. As well as providing professional health and beauty treatments, we'll also look to you to promote sales of our products, hit your personal and team financial targets and deliver exceptional customer service. Friendly and approachable, with lots of energy and enthusiasm, you'll need an NVQ Level 2/3 or an ITEC or equivalent in Beauty Therapy, with knowledge of ESPA, Guinot, Elemis and MD Formulations being an advantage, although product training can be provided.

Life at our company

We're not saying it's heavenly working here, but it's close! Giving great treatments using high quality products. Getting positive feedback from members. Receiving regular high quality training. Benefitting from some really great staff incentives. There are many reasons why people enjoy working at one of our Spa facilities. Of course, it's not always plain sailing, there will be times when you hang around waiting for a client only for them to phone up and rearrange. Plus, you'll need to do your bit to keep the spa looking spotless, including cleaning some fiddly equipment or tidying up after a treatment. But, if providing relaxation and rejuvenation to others is your thing, we think you'll love working here.

What we can offer you

At Virgin Active, we'll give you everything you need to succeed. We don't simply get you on board then leave you to get on with it. Instead, we take the time to make sure you can achieve your true potential. How? Through relevant training, regular feedback and giving you the opportunity to develop, right from day one. The Virgin Active benefits  package is a generous one too, and includes complimentary gym memberships for you and a friend, a first-rate pension plan, childcare assistance and charity days off for Virgin Unite.
