Leisure Jobs

You will look to be an all-rounder and not just in the sporting sense – having to turn your hand to anything from equipment repair to running exercise classes; from poolside duties to cleaning the toilets and serving in the cafeteria. A role in leisure can be physically demanding since you'll be expected to be on your feet for most of the day. Chlorine and other chemicals used in pools may irritate your eyes, nose and throat after prolonged exposure to it, so you will need to be careful.

Who can I work for?

Hotels, large firms and universities are increasingly getting in on the leisure centre boom, joining the traditional local authority-run and privately owned leisure centres.

Where and when can I work?

The UK now has 6,000 leisure centres, which employ full-time staff on 37-hour weeks, including evenings and weekends. Part-timers are also welcome within this industry.

What qualifications do I need?

A BTEC in Leisure and Tourism or Sport is the usual route for many, though GCSEs in maths, English and science and a packed trophy cabinet at home may suffice. A NPLQ lifesaving qualification may be required in many cases where the centre has a pool. On-the-job training is provided - you may even get day release to study a relevant NVQ.

Do I need any experience?

None needed, though a healthy, sports-facing CV dotted with achievements on the playing fields would be a plus, as would unpaid work experience.

What attributes are needed?

Being healthy and fit; enthusiasm; willing to be part of a small, close-knit, hard-working team; friendly and good with the public; able to keep your cool in emergencies and administer first aid in a crisis; ability to communicate instructions in a clear, friendly and personable manner and have the physical strength to move furniture.
