Paralympic swimmer Maisie Summers-Newton and Athletics star Colin Jackson are calling on Londoners to be part of the transformative journey at the iconic London Aquatics Centre on Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford.

Set to be managed by the award-winning operator Everyone Active in partnership with the London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC) starting March 1, 2024, the London Aquatics Centre is gearing up for a comprehensive revitalisation of its fitness offerings.

A range of job opportunities await, from centre management and sales to personal trainers, swimming teachers and group exercise instructors.

Double Paralympic swimming gold medal-winner and Everyone Active Sporting Champion Elite Athlete, Maisie Summers-Newton, has encouraged the community to check out the opportunities available.

Having been crowned British Swimming’s Champion Athlete for 2023, Maisie is currently training for the upcoming British Para Swimming Championships in April, a prestigious event taking place at the London Aquatics Centre itself. Following this, she sets her sights on Paris for the Paralympics this summer.

Maisie said: “The London Aquatics Centre holds a special place in my heart, and I’m excited to witness it not only as a thriving venue for major events but also as a burgeoning centre for community well-being.

“Whether you’re a seasoned professional or embarking on a career in the leisure industry for the first time, this is a unique opportunity to play a role in shaping the legacy of this world-class facility.”

Boasting world-class amenities, the London Aquatics Centre includes two 50-meter pools, a distinctive dive pool with platforms, a 100-station gym and café at the award-winning Dame Zaha Hadid designed building.

Everyone Active’s plans include the introduction of a new group exercise studio, a purpose-built spin studio, and an extensive refurbishment of the food and beverage services, all scheduled for the upcoming spring.

Colin Jackson, a former world champion over 110m hurdles and a passionate advocate for the leisure industry, has also encouraged the local community to take advantage of the exciting job opportunities available.

He said: “The London Aquatics Centre stands as one of the premier aquatics venues globally, leaving a lasting Olympic and Paralympic legacy, and renowned for hosting major sporting events.

“Working here with Everyone Active would be a privilege, offering diverse opportunities in sports, from personal training to teaching swimming and class instruction— the possibilities are endless!

“Everyone Active is a fantastic organisation which genuinely cares about getting communities active and offers tons of opportunities for colleagues to progress and develop.

“Why wouldn’t you want to take your career to the next level, by working in a close-knit team at one of the most iconic leisure venues in the country. There’s a lot of things happening, so get involved!”

Mark Basker, Everyone Active’s regional contract manager, said: “The London Aquatics Centre is an ideal environment for those passionate about shaping a career in the leisure industry and making a genuine impact on community health.

“We have several roles available, some requiring no prior experience. If you want to contribute to a brilliant team at a state-of-the-art facility, apply today.”

Everyone Active is the longest-established leisure contractor in the UK, having been founded in 1987. Today, Everyone Active manages in excess of 230 leisure facilities and cultural services in partnership with more than 60 local authorities.

Maisie Summers-Newton and Colin Jackson are both part of Everyone Active’s Sporting Champions programme, a sports talent development scheme which guides younger aspiring athletes to help them achieve their potential.
