GLL is looking for Gymnastics Coaches based at our leisure centres in Hackney, East London for our lessons and courses for children and adults.

  • Clissold Leisure Centre
  • Queensbridge Sport and Community Centre

Gymnastics is a key area of focus and investment for us. We invest significantly into our gymnastics facilities and equipment to ensure we have the best possible kit available. With over 40 training facilities, including four impressive, sought-after purpose built gymnastics training units, we teach gymnastics to over 10,000 children and trampoline to over 2,000. Although we’re proud that our courses are so popular and have waiting lists for people to join, our aim is to get as many people off of those waiting lists and into lessons – and that’s where you come in.

The fact that you’re passionate about gymnastics is an understatement. You’ll live and breathe gymnastics and want to share that passion with your pupils and colleagues alike. A good all-rounder, you’ll also specialise in any of a number of disciplines that we teach such as men’s and women’s artistic, rhythmic, trampoline and acrobatic. You’ll be able to teach all groups from young children to adults and all abilities from those who enjoy gymnastics as a hobby to our elite pupils and medal winners.

You’ll thrive on seeing others develop and as your courses and lessons will be your own to lead and plan, you’ll influence their success and growth. Ensuring the lessons are enjoyable, you’ll be able to think on your feet and be creative with the facilities around you, still making sure that your pupils are constantly observed and kept safe. Due to our size and scale, there will be plenty of hours available for you to coach and the bigger our courses get, the more opportunity there will be to further develop your career with us. We invest in our people as well as our facilities and we aim to upskill and progress people throughout their time with us.

You need to hold a level 1-2 coach qualification; which will ensure that you can comfortably deliver high-quality sessions at a variety of levels, abilities and age groups from children through to experienced adults.

In return, we offer a range of benefits that you’d expect from the UK’s largest leisure provider:

  • Pension schemes
  • Discounted membership at our leisure centres
  • Career pathways
  • Ongoing training and development to help you to be the best

If you have the passion and skills for this role, apply now.

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