If you have a genuine passion for supporting people, join us as an Exercise Referral Instructor. Help to improve people's level of fitness, health - and ultimately, quality of life. GLL is a charitable social enterprise and the UK's largest leisure provider, partnering with local authorities to run leisure centres, swimming pools and world-class sporting venues. As a not-for-profit organisation, we're different. Reinvesting back into our facilities, communities and people, we're growing - and are committed to developing the skills of our 'Healthwise' Exercise Referral Instructors too, through accredited and on-the-job training.
Healthwise is our GP Referral Scheme, designed to support a wide range of individuals with varying medical conditions. NHS patients can be referred for many reasons - from diabetes and heart disease to depression, arthritis or cancer recovery. Rehabilitation or weight loss are just the start. As an Exercise Referral Instructor, you'll help us to support 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. After identifying their needs, you'll then demonstrate the equipment and design a bespoke programme, from simple exercises to group classes. 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 Instructor, but the role would suit qualified Personal Trainers too - people inspired by the opportunity to make a difference (and enjoy a regular wage, too). If you're a fitness professional or someone with an academic background in a sport or health related 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 NVQ Level 3 Fitness Instructor, a Level 3 GP Referral qualification and experience of delivering lifestyle interventions too.
Few fitness careers are as rewarding as this. So if you're motivated to progress your career with an organisation that improves lives, join us and enjoy great benefits including opportunities to work across various locations, flexible hours, a uniform and discounted membership at all our leisure centres.
