York Sport Careers

We are very lucky to be working across two sites, York Sport Village and York Sport Centre. Major investment in both of these facilities has transformed them into some of the best fitness & sport facilities in the region and we’re looking to develop them even further!

We are a large and friendly team who work hard to provide excellent customer service and facility provision. But we also find time to have fun too – some of the recent team activities were bubble football, bingo, bowling, Christmas parties, meals out, trips to Manchester Velodrome, York Sport Bake-Offs, staff team entries to triathlons and lifeguard competitions!

All jobs will be posted on University of York jobs board  and YCL Careers Facebook page for future roles.
