You will be in overall charge of ensuring a safe and fun experience for our participants, whilst being part of the session delivery team. The post is principally based at two out of our three locations in South London but you will also work regularly from our offices in Brixton and will need to travel locally on occasions (attendance at weekend sessions will be required twice a month).  The post holder will champion a team work ethos and ensure standards are consistent at all our sites.
