Riverside Leisure Centre has recently reopened following a full refurbishment of its wet side facilities and the stunning St Sidwell’s Point, the UK’s first Passivhaus leisure centre, is due to open over the coming months. Riverside and St Sidwell’s Point complement our existing thriving centres; Wonford Sports Centre, Isca Bowls centre, Northbrook Swimming pool and Exeter Arena.

The post holder will deliver swimming lessons to all ages and abilities using the Swim England’s learn to swim framework whilst providing a warm, friendly, professional atmosphere and high standard of customer care at all times.
