Phase IV Cardiac Rehabilitation Instructor - Belfast
Based: Belfast, Northern Ireland
Up to £ 20,033 per annum
GLL is looking for a Phase IV Cardiac Rehabilitation Instructor working across our centres in Belfast to help improve people’s level of fitness, health – and ultimately, quality of life.
GLL is a charitable social enterprise and the UK’s largest leisure provider, partnering with local authorities to run leisure centres, swimming pools and world-class sporting venues. As a not-for-profit organisation, we’re different. Reinvesting back into our facilities, communities and people, we’re growing – and are committed to developing the skills of our Instructors too, through accredited and on-the-job training.
Across our partnerships we deliver a number of Phase IV Cardiac Rehabilitation programmes supporting a clinical referral pathway to a physical activity programme. Our Health Teams work as part of a multi-disciplinary team alongside a number of NHS Trusts to provide support to patients that have suffered a cardiac event.
This collaborative working offers an integrated service with Cardiac teams and provides a smooth transition from both Hospital and community Phase III rehabilitation to Phase IV classes enabling patients to remain physically active within a safe and effective environment.
Ideally, we’re looking for experienced Cardiac Rehabilitation Instructors – people inspired by the opportunity to make a difference. That means you’ll need to be REPS registered with Level 4 Cardiac Rehabilitation Qualification and experience of delivering physical activity sessions to those referred with cardiac conditions. In addition to BACPR qualification you will also need a Level 2 Gym Instructor and a Level 3 GP Referral qualification is desirable.
In return, we offer:
- Childcare vouchers
- Ride to work scheme
- Discounted membership at our leisure centres
- The opportunity to join the GLL Society and have a say in how we’re run plus associated social events
- Career pathways
- Ongoing training and development
Please note this is a Fixed Term Contract until 31st March 2018 (extension expected subject to funding)
