If You Have Enthusiasm, A Positive Attitude, And A Few Basic Skills… I Have A £7/hr Fun, And Fulfilling Job Just For You!

Kieran Igwe
Dear Prospective Employee,

First of all, thanks for taking the time to visit this site. It’s my hope you have precisely what I need in an employee so I can take this page down immediately and put you to work in the fun and rewarding job I have available.

You should have arrived here because you saw my employment ad that reads like this:

Admin/Customer Service Assistant Required, £7 per hour, 15-25 hours per week, apply now at

So, let me tell you about me, my company and the job.

My name is Kieran Igwe and I run a company called Diligent Fitness in Rodley, Leeds

My business is dedicated to helping people get into the best shape of their life through customised fitness and nutrition programmes. And business is going great!

Our team of personal trainers work with our growing client base weekly to help educate, motivate and support clients to improve their health and fitness.

My studio is located at 54 Oaklands Road, Rodley, LS13 1LQ. Just off of Rodley Lane.

If you are hired for this job, you’ll need to come to the studio 9am-2pm 3 to 5 days per week. The salary is £5,460 to £9,100 per annum and there’s a 3 month trial period to make sure you’re a good fit for the role.

Tasks I Need You To Perform

  • Answering and returning phone calls from customers and prospects. I don’t get a load of phone calls, but the ones that come in are important. When you’re not here to answer the phone, many of the calls will go to voicemail. You’ll be responsible for returning those calls the next day.
  • Responding to customer service texts and emails. I get quite a few texts and emails every day. You will need to respond to each of these with basic information I’ll provide you. You need to be comfortable talking on the phone, using email and being a good typist.
  • Printing & Filing. Basic stuff to keep up with the paper flow.
  • Website management. Ideally, you’ll have some technology skills and can do some basic updates to my website (if not, I’ll teach you how). You do NOT need to know HTML, but if you do, that’s a plus. Also, if you’re familiar with WordPress and are generally comfortable with internet technology, that’s definitely a plus.
  • Marketing and sales activities. These include tasks such as creating marketing and promotional materials, liaising with copywriter, web developer and printers regarding marketing materials.
  • Finance, billing and bookkeeping tasks. These include things such as updating weekly sales and expenses into accounting software, setting up client payment plans,  and providing weekly reports for me to review

Required Skills

These are the skills you must already have to qualify for this position:

  • Microsoft Word. You must be very comfortable using Word.
  • Microsoft Excel: You must have basic Excel skills. We don’t do anything advanced with this software, just some simple spreadsheets, but you must be comfortable doing what I need you to do.
  • Good phone personality/etiquette: You will be talking with my customers, who are VERY important to me, and prospective customers, who are also important. You must be comfortable conversing on the phone, in person, and through email. You must know how to conduct yourself professionally, take clear messages and deliver clear instructions to the prospect or client. I’ll teach you everything you need to say and do, but I can’t teach you manners and professionalism.
  • Email: A great deal of your work will be via email, so you need to be very comfortable and proficient with email.
  • Thoughtfulness and organization: I need you to be able to think for yourself and be organized. I am very serious about this one. I do not want a robot, I want someone who learns and grows with me.
  • Attention to detail. You need to be the kind of person who loves getting things just right. You need to enjoy getting tasks checked off your list and balancing all the numbers. I’m quite demanding to work for(!) so you need to be someone who takes pride in their responsibilities and thrives on getting stuff done.

Bonus Skills

If you have these additional skills, your application will go right to the top of the stack (but if you don’t have these skills, you should still apply because they are not mandatory).

  • Experience with Quickbooks Bookkeeping software
  • Experience with WordPress

How To Apply

I’m looking to hire the right person immediately. If this job sounds good to you, follow these instructions now.

Here’s what I want from you. NOTE: Failure to follow these instructions will result in your application going in the circular file. This is your first test, okay?

  • Write me a letter explaining why you are the perfect person to fill this position. Include full contact information (name, address, phone, email) on this cover letter.
  • Provide a CV detailing your past experience

Diligent Fitness Limited, 54 Oaklands Road, Rodley, Leeds, LS13 1LQ

I will review your application. If I feel you’re a good prospect, I’ll call or email you to set up a personal interview.

The sooner I get your application, the better. This will not be a long, drawn out process. I believe in taking action quickly so please get your application over to me as soon as poss! I look forward to reviewing it and hopefully meeting you personally.

Again, thanks very much for your interest,


P.S. This is not a corporate type of structured job. I am an entrepreneurial small business owner.  I move quickly to capitalize on opportunities. This is not the type of job where just showing up is enough. Performance is everything to me. If you perform, you will be rewarded. I want nothing more than to find a person who takes real interest in doing good work and contributing to the growth of the business. If that’s you, I promise that £7/hour is only the starting point. I recognize and reward performance.

With all that said, as I mentioned in the headline on this page, enthusiasm and a positive attitude go a long way in my book. I’m a positive, upbeat guy and appreciate those qualities in others. As long as you have the basic skills I mentioned, and a great attitude, you’re definitely a candidate! So send me your application today!
