GLL, the UK's largest leisure provider and one of the first and largest leisure social enterprises, is looking for Gymnastics Coaches based at Kendal Leisure Centre in Kendal, Cumbria for our lessons and courses for children and adults. Gymnastics is a key area of focus and investment for us. We're a key player in 2012 Olympic legacy and in turn, our gymnastics courses are more popular than ever. With over 51 training facilities, including four impressive, sought-after purpose built gymnastics training units, we teach gymnastics to over 10,000 children and trampoline to over 1,500.

A good all-rounder, you'll also specialise in any of a number of disciplines that we teach such as men's and women's artistic, rhythmic, trampoline and acrobatic. You'll be able to teach all groups from young children to adults and all abilities from those who enjoy gymnastics as a hobby to our elite pupils and medal winners.

An experienced coach, you'll be qualified to Level 1. You'll thrive on seeing others develop and as your courses and lessons will be your own to lead and plan, you'll influence their success and growth. Ensuring the lessons are enjoyable, you'll be able to think on your feet and be creative with the facilities around you, still making sure that your pupils are constantly observed and kept safe. Due to our size and scale, there will be plenty of hours available for you to coach and the bigger our courses get, the more opportunity there will be to further develop your career with us. We invest in our people as well as our facilities and we aim to upskill and progress people throughout their time with us.

In return, we offer a range of benefits that you'd expect from the UK's largest leisure provider:

GLL is looking for Recreation Assistants to work at Parkside Pools & Gym in Cambridge, Cambridgeshire. If you have the talent and ambition to join us as a Lifeguard, there's never been a more exciting time to progress with a sector leader. This is more than a Lifeguard job - it's a career. Professional development is just the start. To ensure you stay at the top of your game, we provide training with practical and theory elements too.

Pool safety can't be underestimated - and neither can the responsibility that comes with this vital lifeguarding role. Our scale means we can also offer scope to progress, and variety like nowhere else - from regular pool rotations, supervising and cleaning the pool area, to setting up equipment and delivering a first-class customer service when dealing with queries. Do your job well, and there shouldn't ever be an emergency. But if the unexpected should happen, you'll be equipped with the skills to potentially save a life.

If you're calm under pressure, highly responsible and a natural with people from all walks of life, this is your chance to develop as a Lifeguard. We look for integrity, a can-do attitude and a real focus on customer service. Passion and personality will also stand you in good stead, combined with knowledge of health and safety legislation and a National Pool Lifeguard Qualification. A great team player, you'll make sure our customers have the best possible experience - in terms of enjoyment, safety and hygiene.

In return, we offer a range of benefits that you'd expect from the UK's largest leisure provider:

GLL is looking for Tennis Coaches based at Delta Tennis Centre in Swindon, Wiltshire.

Tennis is one of our key sports and an area of focus for us at GLL. As part of our charitable social enterprise status, we aim to make tennis accessible and affordable to all sections of the community that we work within. We believe that sport and fitness should be available to everyone and as such, are looking for inspirational Tennis Coaches to bring tennis to more people than ever before.

You'll live and breathe tennis. Your passion for the sport will be infectious.

Our facilities, including dedicated tennis centres as well as those housed in leisure centres, span London (North, South, East and West London) and are in some of the most diverse and sometimes deprived areas in the country, so it goes without saying that you'll be able to inspire, motivate and encourage tennis participation amongst a variety of people. And with our strong relationship with the Lawn Tennis Association and infrastructure to develop tennis all over London, you'll be able to develop a great career in tennis with us too.

An experienced coach, you'll be qualified to Level 2 or be a community-driven Level 3 coach. You'll need to be driven, passionate about what you do and able to work independently but with the support and guidance of our Tennis Managers. You'll benefit from the support that a large organisation such as GLL can bring, in particular from our Tennis and Sports Unit teams. Ideas and innovation are what we thrive on, so you'll be encouraged to think outside of the box and also to get involved in coaching a range of tennis sessions including toddler tennis, Mini Tennis and other variations of social tennis.

In return, we offer a range of benefits that you'd expect from the UK's largest leisure provider:
- Pension Schemes

GLL is looking for casual Recreation Assistants to work at Truro Leisure Centre in Truro, Cornwall. If you have the talent and ambition to join us as a Lifeguard, there's never been a more exciting time to progress with a sector leader. This is more than a Lifeguard job - it's a career. Professional development is just the start. To ensure you stay at the top of your game, we provide training with practical and theory elements too.

Pool safety can't be underestimated - and neither can the responsibility that comes with this vital lifeguarding role. Our scale means we can also offer scope to progress, and variety like nowhere else - from regular pool rotations, supervising and cleaning the pool area, to setting up equipment and delivering a first-class customer service when dealing with queries. Do your job well, and there shouldn't ever be an emergency. But if the unexpected should happen, you'll be equipped with the skills to potentially save a life.

If you're calm under pressure, highly responsible and a natural with people from all walks of life, this is your chance to develop as a Lifeguard. We look for integrity, a can-do attitude and a real focus on customer service. Passion and personality will also stand you in good stead, combined with knowledge of health and safety legislation and a National Pool Lifeguard Qualification. A great team player, you'll make sure our customers have the best possible experience - in terms of enjoyment, safety and hygiene.

In return, we offer a range of benefits that you'd expect from the UK's largest leisure provider:
- Pension schemes
- Discounted membership at our leisure centres
- Career pathways
- Ongoing training and development to help you to be the best

If you think you'd be a good fit for this role, apply now.

Closing date: 30th October 2019

GLL is looking for casual Swimming Teachers based at Truro Leisure Centre in Truro, Cornwall.

Building on our continued growth, we're now the UK's largest leisure social enterprise - and set for even greater success. So, if you have the qualifications and training needed to teach people of all ages and abilities how to swim, join us as a Swimming Teacher and play a key role in the next step of our journey. Bringing ambition to match ours, this is your chance to deliver safe, consistent swimming lessons that give people real confidence in the water - and an invaluable life skill.

As an experienced Swimming Teacher, you'll thrive on supporting people to achieve their potential. Taking a pupil's nature and needs into account, you'll draw on your knowledge of practices, progression and teaching points - and apply it in the most effective way. Naturally, there'll be some administration involved, but rest assured that almost all of your time will be spent doing what you do best - teaching and coaching people to become stronger swimmers, whether in a group or one-to-one, and from babies to adults.

We're looking for qualified Swimming Teachers with a minimum level 2 certificate, knowledge of teaching swimming skills, techniques and awards, and ideally, the National Rescue Award for Swimming Teachers & Coaches. Knowledge of health, safety and other relevant legislation will be vital too, as will an understanding of Child Protection Policy. Plus of course, you'll need to be approachable, with the friendly, patient nature needed to build people's trust, motivate pupils and encourage with praise.

In return, we offer a range of benefits that you'd expect from the UK's largest leisure provider:
- Pension Schemes
- Discounted membership at our leisure centres
- Career pathways
- Ongoing training and development to help you to be the best

If you have the passion and skills for this role, apply now.

If you're not yet qualified to work as a Swimming Teacher, why not sign up to one of the STA (Swimming Teachers Association) courses with GLL College? Visit https://www.gllcollege.co.uk/swimmingteachers/and book onto a course today.

Closing date: 27th October 2019
