Swim School Manager Hounslow £29,607

I am recruiting an aquatics/swim school manager to work in Hounslow at a flagship leisure centre. As the aquatics manager you will be responsible for delivering a comprehensive learn to swim and aquatics programme for 2000 participants delivered through a team of 20 swimming teachers. You will be one of the senior managers working in then centre and as such you will also carry out up to 3 duty management shifts per week. You are not required to teach but there is the option to do so above your hours for which you will be paid an additional £21.90/hr if you are level 2 qualified. Key responsibilities include:

  • Recruitment, retention, coaching and development of your swimming instructors and supporting the lifeguard team.
  • Grow, develop and maintain a comprehensive wet side programme, maximizing Swim School and Learn2 occupancy.
  • Making appropriate recommendations for strategic and tactical development to improve the programme.
  • Liaise with and develop partnerships and relationships with the schools using the centre.
  • Ensure all safe systems at work are adhered to and general building management including maintenance and repairs.
  • Carry out duty management shifts across the centre including opening and closing shifts.

We are keen to hear from candidates who have gained supervisory experience in the leisure industry working with a significant poolside operation and ideally being both pool plant and NOLQ qualified. Previous swimming teaching experience would be advantageous but more important than this is the ability to lead and manage a large team of swimming instructors and have the organisational and communication skills to manage a very significant learn to swim programme that involves so many schools and stakeholders within the local community.

In addition to a basic salary of up to £29,607, benefits include a 5% matched pension contribution, 22 days plus bank holidays, cycle to work, an employee benefits portal and most significantly the opportunity for employer funded training and development to help further your career.

Interviews are immediately available.
