Job opportunities at Water Wizards Swim School
We are always looking for talented individuals to join us at Water Wizards Swim School. If you genuinely love to teach, this is your opportunity to join our family owned and operated swim school with over 25 years’ experience delivering high quality swimming lessons in Northampton.
You will have the opportunity to see nervous non-swimmers flourish, help our more advance Wizards develop and teach an essential life skill. Ideally, you will be outgoing, and confident with great communication and organisational skills. A real passion for teaching and learning is a must. A rescue qualification either NRASTC or NPLQ is desirable but not essential.
You should hold a minimum of an STA or Swim England Level 1 or 2 Qualification in Swimming Teaching, and have experience working with children. However, for the right person, even if you are new to swimming, we can help with the training necessary to become a fully qualified swimming teacher. In return you can expect regular hours working alongside our existing friendly team with fantastic rates of pay and encouragement to train and grow.
We only teach during term time so you could spend school holidays at home and we are very flexible and able to offer you a range of different hours and days. This is perfect for those with existing commitments, or those who are looking to take up as many hours as possible!
Our children’s swimming lessons
Our lessons are mainly based at Northampton School for Girls (NSG), Spinney Hill Road, Northampton NN3 6DG and at Northampton School for Boys (NSB), Billing Road, Northampton NN1 5RT. With smaller class sizes and more teachers in the water than other swim schools, you get time to focus on doing what you love – teaching!
We only employ the best which is why we invest heavily in our team, with both in-house and external ongoing training and offer to either fund or part fund continuous professional development. Many of our teachers started with no prior swimming history, only to go on to become professional swimming teachers for us.
Water Wizards Swim School recognises the responsibility for safeguarding children belongs to ALL those who work directly with, or have responsibility for, children at Water Wizards Swim School. We are committed to providing an environment in which all children and young people participating in activities have a safe and positive experience. Any offer of employment is subject to the satisfactory completion of pre-employment vetting checks including an enhanced DBS check.
