Well at Freedom Leisure we can offer a friendly working environment that brings lots of variety every day.

If you like talking to people, this is definitely the role for you. We understand that engaging with customers and colleagues is not as easy as it sounds and sometimes comes with experience. We will provide all the training needed to be a successful Swim Teacher but we also believe that employing people from a mix of employment backgrounds can offer a wider benefit to our team, some of which might be in their first ever job and need more support from their manager and colleagues.

Come and join our friendly and professional Swim Teaching Team at Stour Leisure Centre. The centre re-opened on 1st June 2021 and has constantly grown with new members joining every day. Our centre provides swimming lessons over 7 days a week, to include mornings and evenings, our centre includes a large gym, three studios, large pool space, new soft play facility for up to 150 children, an 11-wall clip and climb facility, an 8-court sports hall, a café and squash courts.

In the role of Swim Teacher, you will deliver swimming lessons to customers of all ages and abilities ensuring they feel supported and are achieving their goals.

If you want to progress further, we will support this through additional training, both formal and on the job will be key. However, we also appreciate that not everyone wants to ‘move up the ladder’ and that’s absolutely fine with us. What is really important is that you are happy in your work.

At Freedom Leisure we welcome our diverse local community to our centres every day and we want to reflect that same multicultural mix inside our business too. We strive to create an inclusive and diverse workplace where people can be themselves, have the same opportunities and thrive together. Because at Freedom Leisure, You Matter!
