- Part Time
Location: Market Drayton Swimming and Fitness Centre, TF9 1JT
Working Hours: Flexible around your current commitments in order to grow our swim programmes
Salary: £11 - £15.60 per hour depending on qualification
Are you passionate about swimming?
By following the tried and tested Swim England 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.

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.
This role will require a DBS check.
