We challenge ourselves to be recognised as a leading centre for creating impact through sport and activity by maximising our unique environment every day for every customer.

Under the brand of Team Bath, over 100 staff provide activities, services and facility provision to students, university staff, the local community and to high performance athletes.  We aspire to create a world leading multi-sport environment based in our inspiring Sports Training Village, supporting all ages and all abilities to achieve their personal goals.

We are now looking for Sports Assistants to join our hardworking team

Are you a sports enthusiast with ambition and want to be involved with all levels of sport?

Do you have a lifeguarding qualification and good interpersonal skills, and have the ability to work as part of a team?

Working with the Shift Managers and Sports Supervisors in setting up indoor and outdoor activities and events, your main responsibilities will consist of lifeguarding, operation and maintenance of the sports facilities and associated areas, security, cleanliness, health & safety and emergency procedures.

In return for your commitment, we offer a range of great benefits. You will be able to take advantage of discounted access to all the facilities at the Sports Training Village. We also offer a competitive rate of pay, a great pension scheme, tax and national insurance savings through salary exchange schemes (on nursery care, childcare vouchers, cycle-to-work and fitness schemes) and up to 25 days annual leave per year.

The post will involve early morning, evening and weekend shift work, and will require an enhanced DBS check.

We value, promote and celebrate inclusion, challenging discrimination and putting equality, diversity and belonging at the heart of everything we do. We aim to be an inclusive university, where difference is celebrated, respected and encouraged. We truly believe that diversity of experience, perspectives, and backgrounds will lead to a better environment for our employees and students, so we encourage applications from all genders, backgrounds, and communities, particularly from under-represented groups such as Black and Minority Ethnic (BAME) and disabled people, and value the positive impact that will have on our teams.

We have made a positive commitment towards gender equality and intersectionality receiving a Bronze Athena SWAN award, and we are actively working towards a Silver award. We are a family-friendly University, with an increasingly agile workforce, we are open to flexible working arrangements. We’re also proud to be a disability confident employer and are happy to discuss any reasonable adjustments you may require.
