Bahrain General Manager (Bahrain)

GuavaPass gives members access to a community of fitness studios and healthy-living experts, offering unlimited classes at premium fitness studios, exclusive events with wellness experts, community classes and a range of perks from healthy living partners across 11 cities in the Middle East and Asia.

We’re looking for a rockstar General Manager to lead the growth of the Bahrain market. This is a complex and rewarding role at the intersection of business development, growth strategy, and multi-channel marketing.

If this is you, you have a love for entrepreneurship, technology start-ups, and of course, fitness. You are a true hustler with a track record of delivering results under pressure in an unstructured, fast-paced environment. While you’re are an independent self-starter, you’re also a well-connected charmer who loves building communities and connecting like-minded people. Additionally, you are a multi-talented jack of all trades – from tough business negotiations to thoughtful customer service, or planning a 100+ person rooftop yoga event – you’ve got it covered. To get it all done, you’re a detail-oriented planner with a jam-packed, well-organised calendar of studio meetings, influencer meetups, and boxing classes.

If this sounds like you, then read on…
