Wymondham Leisure Centre had over 4.5 million invested in 2016 ensuring our facilities are some of the best in the area, each week we run 60+ fitness classes. Our swim school classes have waiting lists due to their popularity and we continue to want to offer more.  As we now come out of the national lockdown and move close to all restrictions being lifted we are looking to strengthen our teams to meet the demands of our growing customer base.

You must have…

Either have or be prepared to complete a NPLQ National Pool Lifeguard and a First Aid Qualification. Previous experience in a leisure centre, with good concentration skills and the ability to communicate clearly and professionally with our customers.


What’s in it for you…

Our package includes:

  • Opportunity to work your hours flexibly to improve your work life balance (where operationally possible)
