Better gyms and fitness classes reopening in Belfast
- More info »


Around 100 new jobs will be created with the opening of the new £25 million Andersonstown Leisure Centre in the coming months.


The jobs will be created across a range of disciplines, including over 50 lifeguards to ensure a safe and fun experience on the brand new water slides, aqua play park and surf simulator.


Other roles will include swim teachers, gymnastic instructors, fitness instructors, catering staff and front-desk staff. 


Andersonstown will be the next leisure centre to re-open as part of Belfast City Council’s £105 million leisure transformation programme. It follows the recent openings of the new Brook and Lisnasharragh Leisure Centres.

 Andersonstown will be the latest of three fantastic new leisure centres to open in Belfast, following Lisnasharragh and Brook which opened at the end of 2019.


The opening of Andersonstown will bring a further 100 new jobs to the city and the people we recruit to these roles will be responsible for contributing to our aspiration of getting more people in the city, more active, more often.


As a strategic partner of Belfast City Council, we are wholly committed to contributing to the health and wellbeing of the people who live here and to do to that we need to have a great team of people working in these world-class facilities to help deliver on this ambition.
