GLL is looking for a Healthy Living Instructor in Manchester to deliver sessions as part of our Health Referral programme. As a not-for-profit, charitable social enterprise, we're different. Reinvesting back into our facilities, communities and people, we're committed to improving the lives of the communities that we serve.

Health Referral is our GP Referral Scheme, designed to support a wide range of people. NHS patients can be referred for many reasons - from diabetes and heart disease to depression, dementia or post-operative recovery. Rehabilitation or weight loss are just the start. As a Heathy Living Instructor, you'll help us to educate people in changing their entire lifestyle. 

It all begins with an assessment. People can be nervous, so you'll need a patient, calm approach that puts them at ease in the pool environment. After identifying their needs, you'll design sessions which you'll deliver to a class. Naturally, you'll chart their progress too - taking measurements, discussing how they're getting on and showing just how far they've come. Rather than short term results, your focus will be on helping people to gain the tools and confidence they need to take responsibility for their own body and health. 

Ideally, we're looking for an experienced Exercise Referral professional - people inspired by the chance to make a difference. If you're a fitness professional or someone with an academic background in a sporting discipline and relevant vocational experience who's confident, sensitive and able to inspire a wide range of people - often with low fitness and confidence levels - this is for you. That means you'll need to be REPS registered with an Exercise Leader qualification, Level 3 GP Referral Qualification and experience of delivering lifestyle interventions too.

In return, we offer a range of benefits that you'd expect from the UK's largest leisure provider:
- Pension schemes
- Ride to work scheme
- Discounted membership at our leisure centres
- The opportunity to join the GLL Society and have a say in how we're run plus associated social events
- Career pathways
- Ongoing training and development to help you to be the best

If you have a genuine passion for supporting people, apply now.

The welfare and safety of the children in our care is of the utmost importance to us at GLL. We follow safer recruitment procedures to ensure that our staff are checked and appropriate to work with children and young people. Therefore we'll require you to complete an enhance DBS check before you will be allowed to start work.

All pay rates are subject to skills, experience, qualifications and location.
