Based: Faringdon, Oxfordshire
Up to £14.48 an hour
GLL, the UK's largest leisure provider and one of the first and largest leisure social enterprises, is looking for level 1-2 Gymnastics Coaches based at Faringdon Leisure Centre in Faringdon, Oxfordshire for our lessons and courses for children and adults.
Gymnastics is a key area of focus and investment for us. So far this year, we've invested £100k into our gymnastics facilities and equipment and there is much more investment to come. We are a key player in 2012 Olympic legacy and in turn, our gymnastics courses are more popular than ever. With over 30 training facilities, including three impressive, sought-after purpose built gymnastics training units, we teach gymnastics to over 5,000 children. Although we are proud that our courses are so popular and have waiting lists for people to join, our aim is to get as many people off of those waiting lists and into lessons and that is where you come in.
The fact that you are passionate about gymnastics is an understatement. You will live and breathe gymnastics and want to share that passion with your pupils and colleagues alike. A good all-rounder, you will also specialise in any of a number of disciplines that we teach such as men and women artistic, rhythmic, trampoline and acrobatic. You will 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.
You will thrive on seeing others develop and as your courses and lessons will be your own to lead and plan, you will influence their success and growth. Ensuring the lessons are enjoyable, you will 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:
· Discounted membership at our leisure centres
· Career pathways
· Ongoing training and development

Closing date: 30th April 2017
All pay rates are subject to skills, experience, qualifications, age and location.
