GLL is an independent charitable social enterprise. We are the UK’s largest leisure provider, currently running over 140 leisure centres and 26 libraries for the benefit of the communities we serve. We also invest heavily in sports development: our GLL Sports Foundation, in partnership with SportsAid, helps young, sporting talent to achieve their full potential, enabling the athletes, coaches and role models of the future.
We work in partnership with local authorities to run a mix of leisure centres, swimming pools, libraries and world-class sporting venues such as the Copper Box Arena and London Aquatics Centre on the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, all under our Better brand. As a not-for-profit organisation, we plough any financial surplus back into our facilities, projects and the development of our employees. Being a social enterprise makes us different to most other employers in our sector – we’re ‘staff owned’, meaning that we have a loyal and happy workforce who feel very much part of who we are and what we do. We’re continually growing and investing in our communities and currently employ over 6,000 people who we are committed to developing and progressing throughout their careers via accredited and work-related training. – less
