"I would urge potential candidates to keep an eye out for opportunities, which will appear on our website careers portal at http://www.davidlloyd.co.uk. I'm particularly keen to recruit from the surrounding area because it's very important to us that we are a key part of the local community."
The new 6,000-plus sqm club will feature the largest spa of any David Lloyd Leisure club, a plethora of sporting and fitness facilities, and a DL Kids dedicated area for children and families.
