Discover five fantastic reasons why helping people to have
a good time could be a wise career move
It's on the up
Spending on leisure in the
UK has grown at a faster
pace than total consumer
expenditure. The industry is worth
£117bn in revenue and is growing at
nearly twice the pace of the retail sector,
according to a recent study by Deloitte.
Leisure activities are split into two
groups: occasional activities, such as
going to the cinema, theatre, theme
parks and bowling, as well as travel;
and habitual activities, such as betting
and gaming, watching TV, playing
video games and listening to music.
You can take your
pick of roles
The leisure industry provides an
exciting, positive and customerfacing working environment, whether
you're working in a cinema, bowling alley,
indoor rock-climbing centre or laser tag
centre. The roles are varied and require
interaction with people of all ages.
The roles on offer are too numerous to
list but include operating rides, working in
the catering department, being part of the
security team, managing events and being
involved in ticketing or maintenance.
