Current vacancies at Mini Swimming

Swim teachers/ instructors and assistants - Chelmsford, Chadwell Heath and Colchester

Interestingly most of our teachers and assistants here at Mini Swimming were once parents who brought their children to our classes and loved it so much they wanted to do it all the time!

We are looking for more people to add to our already brilliant team so we wondered if any of our current swimming parents are interested in getting involved. 

We are looking for people who love their swimming classes, love children (and their parents) and have a passion for helping children learn and progress. We will provide all of the training for you to become an assistant and then a swim teacher.

What's involved?
You would start as trainee swim assistants which is c4-6 weeks long at 8.25 per hour. You would be assigned one/some/all of the shifts we are looking to cover and learn in the classes that you would go on to work with. After the 4-6 weeks you are then an assistant and pay is £9.50 per hour weekdays and £11 per hour weekends. Most of our assistants then go on to become teachers which typically takes c2-3 months of in pool training and a 4-7 day course. Salary is then £13.50 per hour weekdays and £18.50 per hour weekends. Once you have more than a years experience of teaching you would earn more.

What's an assistant?
An assistant essentially helps with the running of the classes in terms of equipment being handed out and collected and registers taken but then also to help guide children across the pool, following the teachers direction and giving tips on improvement and encouragement. Assistants are also expected to make regular checks on changing rooms and straighten up in between sessions as required.

What hours are available?
Currently we are looking for assistants and trainee teachers in Chelmsford & Colchester for Saturdays and Sundays and Chadwell Heath for Saturdays only.
