Sweat!, which will open it’s first gym in Scotland, at Skypark in trendy Finnieston, is looking to fill around 30 full and part-time roles, including 12 – 15 Level 2 qualified or above Personal Trainers. They will be responsible for providing members with a number of support services, such as creating bespoke fitness programmes, offering diet management and weight control advice, delivering personal training sessions and leading the wide range of exercise classes that will be available every week.  Sweat! is also looking for Front of House Staff, a Duty Manager, Sales Manager, Sales Consultants, a Handyman and cleaners to work at the 22,000sq.ft venue.

Newly appointed General Manager, Martin McGinley, who brings a wealth of experience to the role having worked in several Glasgow-based gyms over the years, said: “This is a great opportunity to be part of a new and exciting gym experience for Glasgow.   “We’re looking for staff who will bring their individual strengths and skills to the roles. It might be expertise in honing and toning core areas, helping people to improve their overall fitness levels or simply engaging with members to assist them in achieving the very best results from their gym sessions. If you have the right experience and the right attitude, we’d love to hear from you.”  Interested candidates for any of the roles should send their CV to martin@sweatunion.com.

Today (Wednesday 16 November, 2016) I met Mike Hughes for a coffee and he told me about his brand new recruitment project, developed in Glasgow West End it aims to match jobseekers to jobs.  Mike is confident that his new system   will make the recruitment process easier. I have to say after hearing about it I was convinced that he is right.

At the heart of the service is a free phone App (for both Apple and Android phones). As Mike sees it, being able to access the service on your phone is one of its main strengths and is a big selling point.

Hiire for Bar, Cafe´, Shop and Restaurant Employers

Mike explained to me that Hiire aims to make the recruitment side of the employment equation much less of a chore. The service provides an easy-to-use dashboard allowing employers to store all their vacancies, applicants and notes.  A sophisticated ranking system works out which job seekers best match each vacancy.  The built in email service ensures that where jobs and positions are matched appropriate contacts can be made immediately.
