About your role

We need to recruit a Swim Manager who is qualified and dedicated to ensuring the operational excellence of our swim programmes so that we deliver high levels of customer service, retention and satisfaction.  Motivating the team will also be key to delivering a great customer experience. You’ll be expected to manage a budget & achieve financial targets set by the General Manager, as well as grow and develop the programme. 

Your skills experience should include business management, problem solving, interpersonal, communication and being organised.

The role will include swim teaching on top of the basic hours each week.  The Swim teachers help deliver one of the largest and most successful swimming lesson programmes in the UK. All levels of lessons are taught & we cater for all ages and abilities, with additional pathways in the higher stages so you’d have the scope to deliver safe, consistent lessons, give out awards & use our swim portal technology. Dedicated and energetic, you’ll be an ASA qualified teacher level 2 and with National Teaching Plan knowledge, as well as health & safety aware. Friendly, patient and with the ability to motivate pupils and encourage with praise or reward is key.

You’ll manage a team of teachers that operate throughout the year to ensure continuous learning, development & progression with supplementary courses held throughout the holidays. It would be desirable for you to hold a current Rescue Test or National Pool Lifeguard Qualification, however, if not, training will be provided where appropriate.
