- Job Description
You’ll live and breathe tennis. Your passion for the sport will be infectious. Although you’ll enjoy the performance aspect of coaching, what you really love is getting more and more people to play – especially a ‘non-traditional’ tennis audience. Our facilities, including dedicated tennis centres as well as those housed in leisure centres, span West London and are in some of the most diverse and sometimes deprived areas in the country, so it goes without saying that you’ll be able to inspire, motivate and encourage tennis participation amongst a variety of people. And with our strong relationship with the Lawn Tennis Association and infrastructure to develop tennis all over London, you’ll be able to develop a great career in tennis with us too.
Overview of Company
We are the largest leisure provider and one of the first and largest leisure social enterprises. Our aim is to get more people, more active, more of the time whilst making leisure and community facilities accessible and affordable. We partner with local authorities to run leisure centres, swimming pools, libraries, children’s centres, spas, events spaces and world-class sporting venues such as the Copper Box Arena and London Aquatics Centre on the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park – all under our Better brand. As a not-for-profit organisation, we’re different. Passionate about seeing our communities thrive, we invest back into our facilities, projects and people and are an Investors in People Silver Award employer. GLL is an equal opportunities employer.
You’ll need to be driven individual, passionate about your players and sharing your tennis knowledge and able to work both independently and within our centre teams. You’ll benefit from the support that a large organisation such as us can bring, in particular from our Tennis and Sports Unit teams. Ideas and innovation are what we thrive on, so you’ll be encouraged to think outside of the box and also to get involved in coaching a range of tennis sessions including Mini Tennis, Adult Tennis and other variations of social tennis.
