Full Time

We have an excellent opportunity for a Chief Technology Officer to join our team at our South East London head office.

Job Title: Chief Technology Officer

Location: London (SE1)

Salary: basic £90K per annum + bonus and excellent benefits package.

In the last 5 years, Fusion Lifestyle has more than doubled in size. Currently, we have 3,000 staff working across 90 sites, serving 25 million customers and generating over £85M of revenue. Our operations extend from Devon to Newcastle. We are a fast growing sports and leisure operator with a unique history and structure and we’re looking to bring a different approach to sport and leisure provision.

Organic growth, new business acquisition and long-term investment (£170M in the last 5 years) have underpinned an unbroken record of profits since the company’s foundation in 2000.

Long term contracts with local authorities have been a traditional source of new business but increasingly growth comes from the development of Fusion’s independent property portfolio. In all cases, new business requires rapid integration to Fusion’s corporate systems

Fusion is a registered charity whose charitable purpose is to deliver sports and leisure activities to the local community. Being a charity does not protect Fusion from the commercial pressures of the highly competitive market in which it operates. A strong commercial outlook is required for Fusion to survive and prosper.

Sport and leisure provision in the UK offers a great opportunity for transformation in terms of careers, customer experience and social outcomes. Fusion is determined to drive this transformation and IT innovation will be a critical success factor. High volumes of consumer transactions and complex operating requirements already place a significant burden on IT.

Generally, the sports and leisure sector has been slow to adopt the latest and best technology - Fusion is no exception to this but in recent years has made strides forward. Fusion believes there is huge untapped value and competitive advantage to be gained from IT that improves the customer journey, makes operations more efficient and delivers quality management information.
