myCareer profile
Billy Ross

Team Leader

Northolt Leisure Centre

Everyone Active

Having always been interested in fitness and sport, but without any qualifications or experience, an apprenticeship gave Billy the perfect opportunity to earn and learn.

“I’ve always been keen on swimming, so the Everyone Active team helped me to gain qualifications in lifeguarding, as well as enrolling me onto a Leisure Operations Level 2 course with Lifetime Fitness.

"When I successfully completed my one-year apprenticeship, I moved into a full-time role.

"I’ve been working here for over a year, and I’ve loved every minute of it! My colleagues have all supported me in learning about the leisure industry and I’ve worked very hard to progress.

"The support I was given enabled me to move up the ranks quickly and I was promoted to team leader after just a few months. Being given the opportunity to take on more responsibility has helped build my confidence and become adept at managing and ensuring the centre runs smoothly.”
