Dear Prospective Tribe leader,

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

So, let us tell you about ourselves, Cornerstone Strength & Conditioning and the job.

Our names are Sam and Michael, and we are the proud owners of Cornerstone Strength & Conditioning in Adamstown, Newcastle. 

We started Cornerstone because we felt like we had an opportunity and duty to share what we know with our community, and build a 2nd home for our clients which catered for all of their health and wellness needs. We currently educate, motivate and support just over 80 clients for both Private and Small Group training and we need more help. Most people want the quick fix when it comes to health and fitness, but the name Cornerstone came about as we wanted to help people build solid foundations from which they could then build their healthy pyramid. And strong foundations start with laying the Corner Stone. We're here to be a knowledge center, a positive influence on our community and to change the world in which we and our clients live. 

We're looking for an enthusiastic, motivated, and energetic person to start training some of our current clients at our facility in Adamstown. Our clients come from a variety of training backgrounds and we offer a variety of advice to improve their health and fitness.

We are building a community and environment to change the way in which we live, for others to change the way they live, and to change the world in which we all live. If you are hired for this position, the specific role and the hours associated with it will vary depending on your experience, goals and ability to create value. We are about creating opportunities for our clients, and our staff are no different, however we are also looking for a person who will create their own opportunities. If you're looking for a role which gives you the opportunity and freedom to grow, then we would love to talk to you.

If you are hired for this opportunity, you'll be required to undertake an onboarding trial process before being fully integrated. This process may vary depending on the candidate.
