Rise to the next level and train to be a swim teacher

Posted: 11th April 2018

Edinburgh Leisure is looking to recruit trainee swim teachers, who will be supported through their development with qualifications, training and site-based support.

Shelagh Jackson, Aquatics Development Manager, explained: “Edinburgh Leisure’s swim coaching programme is so popular that we want to ensure that we have enough qualified swim teachers to meet the demands of both junior and adult coaching.

“Our aim is that we will nurture up-and-coming talent and support their development to fill swim teacher roles across Edinburgh Leisure. This is a fantastic opportunity for anyone with a passion for swimming and looking for a part time job opportunity of 10 hours a week, with career development potential. We are hoping to attract applicants from all walks of life.”


Applicants must have already completed the UKCC level 1 swimming teaching qualification and will be supported through a swim teaching career to reach level 2, whilst earning money.   Training costs and exam fees will be paid, in addition to a pro-rata salary of £4,393, as well as a generous rewards package.
