Swimming Teachers

Better are currently looking to recruit 3 term time Swimming Teachers (part time) to join the team that provides school swimming across Manchester, where we are currently building on our growth and are 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.

With the current expansion of our school swimming programme, we are currently looking for instructors to join our teams across Manchester to assist this exciting business growth partnership with local schools.

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 plus an expectation to develop effective interaction and relationship working with school teachers, but rest assured that almost all of your time will be spent doing what you do best - teaching people to become stronger swimmers, whether in a group or one-to-one. Plus you'll also have the opportunity to work as a swim teacher on school swimming projects.

We're looking for Swimming Teachers with a minimum Level 2 certificate, knowledge of the Swim England Learn to Swim Programme for teaching swimming skills, techniques and awards and a valid and current NPLQ qualification. 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: 

  • Pension
  • Childcare vouchers
  • 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

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

To be shortlisted for the role, internal applicants will need to demonstrate their commitment to GLL by becoming a Society member where eligible.
