Join the Gravity Family
We are looking for enthusiastic individuals with a desire to deliver an unrivaled customer experience. A background in business is preferred, as you will be implementing a management team with multiple employees and skill-sets.
Gravity was established in 2014 to push at the boundaries of excellence in the active entertainment industry. To date, we have welcomed more than 3 million visitors to our UK and global sites.
In 2017, Gravity benefited from additional growth funding from the prominent Guinness Asset Management Fund and five new sites were subsequently launched.
Our founders, Michael and Harvey, who holds a seat on the International Association of Trampoline Parks and co-authored the British Standards Policy that governs the industry, continue to draw upon their experience having worked across every area of the Gravity business – from front-of-house to visitor supervision – to actively support franchisees in achieving their goals.
Ultimately, we are looking for people who have a passion for the brand, our products and who believe in creating amazing entertainment.
A Unique Opportunity
Due to the success, ongoing growth and business performance of the Gravity model, franchisees can benefit from additional funding and start-up investment. In some instances, this had led to sites benefiting from up to £1.5m in start-up support. Where Gravity can leverage this funding, the full amount will be passed on to the franchisee.
At Gravity, we firmly believe in giving our franchisees all the tools, help and ongoing support they need. It's quite simple – if our franchisees are successful, then so is the business as a whole.
