Maidstone are recruiting!

Aug 12, 2022 |

Our National Commercial Aquatics manager Helen Bull is here to tell us about a new and exciting opportunity at Maidstone Leisure Centre...

I’ve worked in the leisure industry in various capacities my entire career. I’ve worked on cruise ships, at Disneyland Paris, at Disney World in Florida and now I’m National Commercial Aquatics Manager for Serco Leisure, which operates Maidstone Leisure Centre on behalf of local authorities.

My role at Serco Leisure is all about increasing the number of people who are able to benefit from our excellent sports and fitness facilities, focusing on swimming, of course.

There is truly nothing like working in the physical activity sector. You’re not just working, you’re helping people lead more active, healthier lives. These brand-new roles are your chance to make a difference, to feel your work really means something.

So, here’s my sales pitch…

How would you feel about a job that gave you free gym/swim membership for you and one family member? A job where you’d be supporting people to learn the key life skill of swimming? A position that gives your drive for commercial success the chance to shine? A role where your work leads to smiles, laughter, fun and fitness?

Well, you’re in luck as our new role at Maidstone Leisure Centre fit this description to a tee. We’re looking for people in possession of, or willing to work towards, a Swim England Level 2 Swimming Teacher qualification or STA level 2 Award and Certificate in Teaching Swimming.

At Maidstone Leisure Centre, we need a full-time Aquatics Commercial Lead. We can be flexible in how you work, so we’re happy to discuss remote working at times if it suits.

So, if you’re a commercially-minded leisure professional, able to juggle management of a team with a passion for helping your community get more active, drop us a line!

People who work in the physical activity sector stay in the physical activity sector. There’s a reason for that – your work and your contribution matter.

See you at the pool!
