Could you be a fitness or swimming instructor?
17 Nov 2021
Active Northumberland has some exciting opportunities available to join its swimming and fitness teams, due to the development of some of its facilities, resulting in a big increase in customer demand.
Active Northumberland is looking to recruit new fitness instructors and swimming instructors and while qualifications and experience would be preferable it is not essential as full training will be given.
The positions are available on a part-time basis so they can fit around other work, study or family commitments.
Gareth Baister, Wellness and Retention Manager at Active Northumberland said: “Being a group fitness instructor or a swimming instructor might not necessarily have been a career you had thought about previously, but if you have a confident personality and are a keep-fit regular then it may be something you would like to consider. We run classes at all times of the day and evening at our centres across the county so can offer flexible working hours that can fit around other commitments you may have, and of course full training and support will be given.”
Fitness instructors must have a confident personality, an abundance of energy and enthusiasm and a genuine interest in supporting people of all ages to achieve their personal fitness goals.
Swimming instructors must have a basic understanding of swimming skills but being friendly, enthusiastic, reliable and able to interact with children are the key qualities that are being looked for.
Active Northumberland runs a huge range of group fitness classes across all of its sites around the county including Aqua classes, Studio Cycling, Zumba, Les Mills, Pilates, Yoga and more.
It also has ten swimming pools across the county and delivers a range of swim programmes from tots to teens and beyond.
