What our people say about us:
“The things that I enjoy about working for Life Leisure are, being part of an enthusiastic team and I have also been into swimming from a young age so I really enjoy working around this environment.” (Lifeguard)
“My experience of working as a swimming teacher has been life changing, this career path followed my love for working with children. I feel constantly rewarded by the children I teach on a daily basis and proud of their success. As a member of staff I feel appreciated and as a team we continuously attend training to aid in our development enabling us to become strong and enthusiastic teachers with a passion for the continuous development of swimmers. This has led to me being the best I can following Life Leisure's W.A.T.C.H. principles and gaining Sentinel status!” (Pool Coordinator)
“The thing I love most about working for Life Leisure is that it's so much more than just a business, as a charity we are constantly striving to improve people's quality of life. There are so many community events to get involved in and as a Sentinel I even get the chance to help shape the future of Life Leisure. You really are one of the family here, my personal development is seen as a priority and I have been supported and mentored through a number of job roles in order to be the best I can be and ultimately work in a role that rewards me every day.” (Duty Manager)
