During coaching sessions I get in around 15 minutes early to set up and get a register etc, when the children arrive we do a warm up, a stretch and then get into some usual activities of the session

I took up a professional enhancement placement with SLLC in October of 2016 and was responsible for organising disability sport events for those living with various impairments in South Lanarkshire. The experience in itself was valuable and one that I look back on with a sense of accomplishment seeing the young athletes faces light up.

A typical day at work is fun and I learned a lot from co-workers who are very supportive. The management in some facilities is excellent but others are unorganized. The most rewarding part of the job is working with the children.

a typical day would involve opening and processing the mail and dealing with customers over the counter and on the phone. I learned lots of different leisure booking packages. The management can be somewhat inconsistent in their decision making and instructions. The workplace culture is very typical of a local authority organisation. The hardest part of the job can be dealing with awkward customers which is typical for all customer service jobs. The most enjoyable part of the job is dealing with regular customers and clients and offering good service.
Pros
job for life
Cons
pay is not great although pretty standard for local authority.

During my time working for SLLC, i have been able to see a lot of the job roles within SLLC. And been able to have a try at a few of them.
They are very supportive of your education, and qualifications you want to achieve out with the trust.

I enjoy working in a team environment with outgoing people who have the same interests as me. With this job I have improved my leadership skills by taking my own groups whilst coaching and thus improving my communication skills.

Decent place to work and have been fortunate to be a part of a great team to the stage I'd class them as almost family. However, I believe that the trust employs far too many people on part-time contracts and there are very few opportunities for full-time roles - to the point where you have to think that certain contracts are hardly worthwhile taking due to so little hours on offer. A lot of employees, myself included, are taking on multiple contracts across different roles in order to gain a better salary.

After initial training at the start of employment with the company, it is almost a feeling that you are in a battle to get more training to try and progress rather than management trying to really develop you. Certain courses that are available often end up getting cancelled but often you only find out when you turn up at the location only to find that it has been cancelled, therefore communication is a big issue. At times you can't help but feel that you are working under a "glass ceiling".


It can be a rewarding job when working with the public and helping people to achieve their goals however, as with most roles dealing with the public, you can find yourself on the receiving end of abuse with little support from above.
Pros
Great colleagues, largely a pleasant place to work
Cons
hours can be restrictive for certain roles, management can be non-existent

My roles within these positions are mainly to manage the day to day running of the gym and the sport centres and this included tasks from ensuring the customers had an excellent experience to completing the days financing and organising rotas and covering shifts. As a receptionist I also had to manage the booking system for both the gym and the sport centres as well as be the first line of contact with all customers so making sure that they again had an excellent experience.
Pros
Every day is different
Cons
Unsociable hours
