Job title: Swimming Teacher

Working Hours: Flexible around your current commitments

Salary: £17.12 per hour + excellent benefits

  

 

Are you passionate about swimming? 

 

Here at Northern Community Leisure Trust our goal is to get more people active by providing affordable safe and enjoyable lessons for all and right now we are recruiting for swimming teachers to grow our programmes to ensure we can do just that. If you are passionate about ensuring all children and adults have access to affordable lessons no matter their ability or background this role could be right for you. 

 

By following the tried and tested Swim Ireland learn to swim framework we develop the confidence in all our swimmers through fun and enjoyable lessons. Many of our swimmers have progressed to swim competitively and even to represent our country. 

 

Teaching our swimming lessons will see you delivering safe fun and progressive lessons, but this is also a mentality we take towards our teachers' careers and personal development. We want you to feel safe in your employment so we will contract you for as little or many teaching hours as you want around your current commitments. 

 

Paying for your own safeguarding and DBS checks aren’t fun or cheap so we provide these for you! There’s also no need to hold your own personal insurance as you will be covered by ours. Working for us will enable you to work within all our leisure centres as well as giving you excellent personal and career development through continued training and learning opportunities. 

 

Our in-house Aquatic Training Academy will provide you with ongoing training through our specialist CPDs in swimming teaching, meaning you can access a range of training throughout your career, and when it comes to that career, we have a solid pathway in place meaning there is opportunity to progress into management or other areas in the business. 

 

We share your passion for leisure and want you to be able to embrace all the excellent services we provide to our customers which is why all of teachers are given a free membership as well as one for a friend or family member. 

 

Serco manages these facilities on a day-to-day basis on behalf of the Trust.

 

 

What you’ll need to do the role 

 

You will have excellent customer service skills and be someone who is happy to deal with people of all ages and back grounds. 

 

You will need to hold either a STA Award/Certificate in Teaching Swimming or Swim Ireland Level 2 

 

Holding either a valid RLSS UK NPLQ, RLSS UK NRASTC or STA Safety Award for Teachers would be advantageous but not essential as we can provide the training to complete these courses free of charge. 

 

If you do not yet hold the relevant qualifications to teach swimming but you are looking to start a career with us, please do not worry as we have multiple qualified Swimming Teacher Tutors across our business and often run training courses. Please submit your application and we will be in touch when we have a course running near you.  

 

This role will require a DBS check. 

 

What we offer  

  • Free membership at the Centre plus heavily discounted use of classes and facilities.
  • Free safeguarding training and DBS check 
  • Excellent Development and Training Opportunities  
  • Simply health cash plan
  • Anytime health line
  • Employee assistance programme
  • Benefits portal offering discounts on eating out, travel, shopping and entertainment
  • A safe and supportive culture  
  • A chance to make a positive difference to the community
