Beach Cafe + Gym - Personal Trainer & Operations Manager Couple - Sri Lanka - Kalpitiya, Sri Lanka

Posted: 1/12/2020 - 5:26 pm

Seeking self-starter couple to help manage our fitness beach camp & cafe in the paradise of Sri Lanka. 

Situated in the untouched beach paradise of Kalpitiya in Sri Lanka, we are an eco-friendly fitness camp set amidst beautiful exotic gardens and lagoons with access to a fully-equipped beach gym, coworking space and cafe serving some of the best coffee and food in the region.

The location is ideal for a fitness couple looking for chilled vibes and to embrace the slow island life in a tropical beachside location. Kalpitiya is a mecca for kitesurfers and so if you wish to learn or already a lover of the sport, this really is a paradise spot for you.

Who we are looking for

We are looking for a proactive, positive and enthusiastic couple to help run our fitness classes and  the overall running of the business including but not limited to managing bookings and enquiries, social media, customer service, daily costings and purchasing, and staff. People who are willing to get their hands dirty (not in the kitchen of course!) and always look to new ideas, whether training the local staff to develop their hospitality skills, engaging social media campaigns, promotion of the gym to guests in the area, taking gym clients for guided SUP trips etc. 

Due to the laidback lifestyle in Kalpitiya, we need a couple who are self-motivators, hardworking and enjoy the slow life as it can be extremely chilled on the beach here! 

Daily tasks might include:

  • Serving in the cafe including making smoothies, juices and coffees
  • Customer service - assist our guests ensuring their experience with us is on brand whether in the cafe, gym or coworking space
  • Personal Training sessions 
  • Group gym classes
  • Help with cost recording, specials board and budgeting
  • Open and closing the cafe and gym
  • Staff Management - training, management, supervision
  • Day to day accounts management and book keeping (minimal)
  • Reporting to the owner of the business
  • Respond to enquiries and manage bookings (shared with Director)
  • Social media posts and stories
  • General cleaning of the gym space and maintenance of equipment (when required)

In exchange we will provide shared accommodation with private room, two daily meals off the staff menu, free access to the gym and a basic salary to cover simple living expenses. 50% commission is offered on all personal training sessions. 

Hours are normally minimum 48 per week with 1.5 days off per week. You will acrue 1.25 days of holiday per month of employment. We may ask that your days off are seperate to ensure we have enough cover in the cafe and gym. 

The café and gym are very chill and so you will not be rushed off your feet all the time. Plenty of down time to go for swims, chat, read, chill or do your own training in the gym.

We are still a relatively new business operating in a developing country, so I have my hands tied somewhat regarding salary. I guess what we lack in financials we can give in paradise and a lowcost, easy, beach living! You will be able to save each month (depending on how much you spend in the bar...).

You will be reporting to the business owner who's main responsibility is the marketing of the business and overseeing its general direction. 

We need people who can commit to at least 5 months starting April 2020.
