The Company

Love Withington Baths (LWB) is a charitable organisation run by local people with a shared vision to provide accessible and affordable high-quality leisure opportunities for all its residents and local businesses.

It has been running Withington Leisure Centre since 2015.

Withington Leisure Centre is over 100 years old and contains a 60-station gym, a 22 x 6m pool, two studios and a small café. Since taking over, membership has grown from zero to just under 2,000 and we now run over 60 classes for people of all ages.

Our swimming programme has also grown and offers significant opportunities for further expansion. We run day-time lessons to our 9 local primary schools and deliver an after-school programme to over 350 children from age 0 – 11. One-to-one lessons for adults and children are also growing.

The Role

Reporting directly to the Facility Manager we are ideally looking for a highly motivated and experienced Swimming Instructor with a minimum of 3 years’ experience in the leisure industry.

The role will require flexible working with a shift pattern – with an approximate 75:25 split between Swim Teacher and Lifeguarding envisaged. This includes early starts, evenings and a regular weekend slot. We also welcome applications from candidates interested only in part-time work. The successful candidate will have a track record of delivering high-quality swimming classes.

Applicants for this role must have a Level II ASA or STA Swimming Teacher qualification. It would be considered a positive addition to your application if you one or more of the following:

-First Aid at Work Qualification
-Knowledge of Health and Safety Requirements
-Pool Plant Operators qualification

We operate a flexible staffing structure with all staff required to work across the facility. If you do not have the above desirable qualifications, you will be provided with this training during year 1, so that you can subsequently undertake associated tasks.

The person we are after will:

-Have an excellent track record of delivering high-quality swimming lessons to young people
-Be able to communicate effectively with children, parents and other facility users
-Be able to work as part of a team
-Strive to deliver high customer service standards in all aspects of the facility


£19,700 - £20,800 annual salary (pro-rata for the part-time position) with the potential to earn additional revenue from 1-2-1 lessons

In line with the Immigration, Nationality and Asylum Act, all applicants will be expected to provide proof of eligibility to work in the UK if invited to interview. We welcome applications from all backgrounds and all sections of the community. This post is also subject to an enhanced DBS check.

Please apply by submitting a letter of application, addressing the above points and your suitability for this position, along with your CV below.
