JOBS: New Ipswich business looking to hire more than 40 staff
A GLOBAL company, and the latest business to transform an Ipswich industrial estate, needs more than 40 people to join their fitness cult.
Workers are needed to fill roles in hospitality, administration, personal training, child care and other positions as the fitness fanatics behind the new World Gym prepare to open at Bundamba in the coming months.
The gym will bring the total new jobs available at Citiswitch business park to more than 300 as Costco has promised roles for 280 people when the American warehouse giant opens down the road by next year.
There is still plenty of incentives for more jobs as a new owner is yet to secure the old Masters building in the same development.
Dominic Edwards and his son Darcy are the force behind the gym and have plans to build a facility to make the most of the World Gym "buzz" in Ipswich and at the same time, create plenty of fitness jobs.
"We understand the key to creating the culture we wish to build within our gym, we will need the right staff to make this possible," Mr Edwards said.
"We want staff that will help create an all-inclusive gym that everyone feels safe and comfortable in so as to achieve their goals through seriously fun fitness."
