GLL is looking for a Recreation Assistant Apprentice to work at Brixton Recreation Centre in Brixton, South London. If you love sport, fitness and exercise, this apprenticeship could help you build a career out of your passion.

The Recreation / Leisure Assistant Apprenticeship is a hands-on and active role. You could be doing anything from Lifeguarding a pool to setting up a sports hall for a badminton or football session. Whatever you’re doing though, rest assured you’ll have all the support of a big, friendly team behind you as well as proper training to give you the confidence and knowledge to do your job well.

You’ll need to:

  • Be a strong swimmer – you’ll have to do a timed swim test before you start
  • Be friendly – you’ll be helping lots of our customers
  • Be hard-working – our leisure centres open weekends and early mornings (don’t worry, you won’t have to do them all the time!)
  • Enjoy learning – we’ll train you to get qualifications including a Level 2 NVQ in Leisure Operations and your National Pool Lifeguard Qualification (NPLQ)

These apprenticeships are based in Better Leisure Centres, which are run by GLL – the UK’s largest leisure operator – so if you’re hard-working and pass your apprenticeship, you’ll have the opportunity to build a long-term career with us.

In return, we offer:

  • Discounted membership at our Better Leisure Centres
  • Free uniform
  • Competitive salary
  • Ride to Work scheme
  • Pension
  • Training and career development opportunities

All pay rates are subject to skills, experience, qualifications, age and location.
