This business provides leisure, fitness and entertainment activities in 20 centres across East Devon and South Somerset.

IT in the Fitness & Leisure industry has moved from a back-office support function to being a key part of the customer's digital experience, which makes it an exciting sector to work in, and gives us a wide variety of technology and solutions to be managed.

Their expanding IT service needs a new IT Project Coordinator, to help deliver exciting new digital solutions to the business.

The Role:
