Are you passionate about swimming? Do you like to provide safe and enjoyable lessons in a first-class environment? If so, this could be the right role for you.

At Bangor Aurora Leisure our goal is to get more people, more active, more often. We provide affordable access to a wide range of sports and leisure facilities to support healthier and happier people across all segments of the local community.

To deliver those services takes an enthusiastic and customer focused team - and right now we are looking to recruit local Swimming Teachers to join our centre.

Swimming not only teaches a skill for life, it can also provide a fulfilling and enjoyable job as you work with people of all ages to help them develop those skills

This could see you working with individuals, therapeutic groups, schools, or in our range of public classes. Either way though you’ll carry out the lesson plans, ensure the safe use and storage of equipment, complete pupil records, and carry out assessment sessions.

This is your chance to train potential athletes, ensure children remain safe and aware of the risks around water and build confidence in all service users. Who knows, it may be you getting a thank you from the Olympic swimmers of the future!

Ultimately, you’ll ensure your pupils continue to progress, providing them with confidence in the water - and you with an enormous sense of achievement and pride.

We share your passion for leisure and we will offer a safe, fun and professional working environment with excellent development opportunities. You will also receive free gym membership and other various discounts.

About you

You’ll need to have excellent customer service skills as you’ll be interacting heavily with our customers. So, whether you’ve earned that experience in a leisure or another customer-facing environment, you’ll be a people person who is happy dealing with people of all ages and backgrounds.

As a teacher you’ll naturally be able to motivate and manage your students, have excellent planning skills, and be a good communicator.

Lastly, you’ll need to hold a Swim Ireland Level 2 qualification or equivalent. It would be an advantage if you hold a qualification in water safety/lifesaving (NPLQ) but this is not essential.

Why Serco?

Meaningful and vital work: Swimming not only makes people healthier and happier, it also teaches a skill for life. As one of our teachers you’ll be at the forefront of helping people develop those skills.

A world of opportunity: Our swimming teachers are integral to the running of our centres. As well as progressing into aquatics co-ordination, they can move into other centre management roles in one of our 55 facilities.

Great people: Teaching can lead to a great sense of accomplishment as you watch people progress and work with your local community. And as you’re supporting your students, we’ll be supporting you with ongoing training and development.
