Event description



Would you like to work for Stockport’s Employer of the Year 2016 & Best Not for Profit Organisation 2015

Do you display our Preferred Behaviours - WINNER, AUTHENTICITY, TOGETHER, CARING and HAPPY (W.A.T.C.H.)?

Are you passionate about working in a customer focused environment and delivering exceptional service?

Do you like the idea of developing a career (or your next career) within the leisure industry?

At lifeLEISURE we have exciting opportunities (including apprenticeships) within our aquatics and swimming development team so if you answered ‘YES’ to all the above questions, we would love to meet you at our recruitment event on 23rd November* where you'll get to informally meet a member of the swimming management team and find out more about the opportunities available.

*Please note you can attend at any time during the event period, you will not be required for the whole 3 hours.

Our swimming team is made up of enthusiastic, motivated, responsible and hardworking individuals who help deliver a wide variety of swimming sessions, providing routes from the beginner to Olympic swimmers. We have a mix of apprentices, part time teachers who teach alongside their studies or as a 2nd job, and those who choose leisure as their full-time career, enjoying a mix of teaching beginners and coaching elite swimmers and athletes, or working in a combination of roles for example Swimming Teacher and Lifeguard or Duty Manager.

If you’re wondering what it’s like to work for us, here’s what some of our team members have said about us

My experience of working as a swimming teacher has been life changing, this career path followed my love for working with children. I feel constantly rewarded by the children I teach on a daily basis and proud of their success. As a member of staff I feel appreciated and as a team we continuously attend training to aid in our development enabling us to become strong and enthusiastic teachers with a passion for the continuous development of swimmers. This has led to me being the best I can following lifeLEISURE's W.A.T.C.H. principles and gaining Sentinel status!”

“The things that I enjoy about working for lifeLEISURE are, being part of an enthusiastic team and I have also been into swimming from a young age so I really enjoy working around this environment.”

“I enjoy working with lifeLEISURE to meet people and help them when needed. For example being a lifeguard or apprentice is a great starting point, you meet a lot of people and support them both in the pool and out. You learn a lot and are given a lot of help.”

“It’s an easy going but a very professional working environment with nice co- workers, and is enjoyable and fun when appropriate.

For lifeguard roles candidates will need to gain the National Pool Lifeguard Qualification (NPLQ). We can train you to achieve this qualification so don’t worry if you don't currently have it. You must be a strong swimmer to take part in the lifeguard course, including being able to do the following:

•Jump / dive into deep water

•Swim 50 metres in less than 60 seconds

•Swim 100 metres continuously on front and back in deep water

•Tread water for 30 seconds

•Surface dive to the floor of the pool

•Climb out unaided without ladder / steps and where the pool design permits

If you are interested in one of our opportunities that involves lifeguarding please bring your swimming kit with you to the recruitment day and we can check you are a strong enough swimmer to complete the course.

Our culture of Preferred Behaviours = Personal Best underpins that we do at lifeLEISURE. All staff who are recognised as demonstrating the Preferred Behaviours have the opportunity to be invited to join our Sentinel Programme where they take an active role in the future of lifeLEISURE by creating, developing and implementing new idea and products/services, whilst learning new skills which help them become lifeLEISURE's future leaders.
