We are a globally recognised brand with over 233 clubs in 8 countries and more than 1 million members. As part of the Virgin Group founded by Sir Richard Branson, we opened our first club in Australia in 2008 and are building an unparalleled collection of iconic locations in Sydney and Melbourne. We continue to innovate by developing a more personalised gym, multi-boutique experience and mission to provide irresistible exercise experiences.

The gig:

You’ll leverage your personality to deliver exceptional and fin-tastic swim classes to children and adults. Safety will be at the forefront of everything you do and creating an entertaining and easy way to learn to swim comes naturally to you. You’ll look for opportunities to improve our swim program delivery at every turn, finding ways to give our members that little bit extra… especially when it’s unexpected.

All about you:

You’re warm, honest and genuine with your AUSTWSWIM qual, previous experience in a swim school and your first aid. You may also have your Infant and Preschool Aquatics qual, Access and Inclusion qual or Teacher of Adults qual. A+ for you. You get a kick out of getting people to those I did it! moments and love to deliver educational (yet entertaining) swim lessons. You’re authentic when you express yourself, and you‘re comfortable communicating with members of all ages and skill levels.

What we offer you:

  • One of the world’s most recognised and exciting brands
  • A culture that’s all about making exercise irresistible
  • A free membership for you to workout at our clubs (and one for your buddy after 12 months)
  • Discounted personal training

  • Fun. It’s part of our success. We prefer smiles to graphs. We like to be human rather than corporate.
