He angitūtanga: The opportunity
Our Leisure Centres more popular than ever, and as a team member, you’ll have the opportunity to work across roles within our Leisure centres, especially as a Fitness Instructor and Customer Support. 


As a Fitness Instructor, you’ll be helping people achieve their health and wellbeing goals, delivering fitness programmes for all ages and abilities across our diverse community. 


By taking on additional roles such as Customer Support, you’ll have the opportunity to pick up more shifts than you would as solely a Fitness Instructor, so you can flex your hours up or down to suit your availability week-to-week. In doing so, you’ll be able to deliver outstanding, safe, and diverse customer experiences across our pool and leisure facilities. 


When joining our team as a casual team member (network support), you’ll be joining a team that’s proactive, dynamic, and contributes to our goal of enabling Aucklanders to Get Active Their Way.

It goes without saying that you’ll be passionate about fitness, health, and wellbeing! With training provided, we are looking for enthusiastic, reliable, and positive people who thrive on client contact and have a proven ability to communicate effectively to ensure a high level of client satisfaction through the programmes you deliver. 
To excel within Customer Support, you’ll be friendly, outgoing, and committed to making a difference in our local communities. For the right candidate, there are also opportunities to work across Recreation and Aquatics. 


A recognised fitness related qualification is required and knowledge of fitness training including fitness testing and monitoring of clients is advantageous, also holding a current REP's Certificate, Exercise Consultant Level 2 and First Aid Certificate.
