Apprenticeships – Midsomer Norton Leisure Centre

Hours – 30 to 37 hours per week including evenings and weekends, lasting a year with the option of a second based on performance.

Salary – from £6.69 per hour with overtime opportunities.

We are seeking apprentices to join us at Midsomer Norton and have multiple opportunities available. Working within a team, you will be quick to learn new skills and must be able to use your initiative. All training is provided and you will gain multiple qualifications that will help you develop successful careers in the leisure industry worth over £5000. These include the National Pool Lifeguard, Level 2 Fitness Instructor, Level 1 and 2 Swim Teacher, Level 3 Certificate in First Aid and a Level 2 Leisure Team Member qualification.

Working on a rota, our successful candidates will be friendly and have a customer focus, with a hands-on approach to work. The roles are designed to help you understand and gain experience in the key roles of a leisure centre such as pool lifeguarding, reception, cleaning, the gym, climbing and more. By the end of the apprenticeship, our aim is to have someone with good qualifications and experience whom would be employable in various positions upon completion if available.

Each role is subject to passing the National Pool Lifeguarding Qualification in advance of starting the apprenticeship, so applicants need to be reasonable swimmers. To that affect, an informal assessment of swimming ability is part of the interview process.
