Slimming World, Ireland’s largest and best loved weight loss organisation, is looking for people with a passion for helping others. They have launched a campaign to recruit more people to start their own weight loss group with a special Slimming World careers Opportunity Event planned for the Maldron Hotel Oranmore on Wednesday 19th October at 7pm.
Maura O’Connor, who manages a team of consultants who run 19 Slimming World groups in Galway, says: “For more than 50 years, Slimming World has been helping people to change their mindset and form new habits around eating and becoming more active. The real key to success is found in the weekly group where consultants motivate and inspire members to achieve their weight loss dreams. For anyone who has ever struggled with their weight, finding understanding, care and support to help you stay committed and reach your target is invaluable. And this is a rare chance to make a real difference”.
The opportunity to become a self-employed Slimming World consultant provides plenty of flexibility and can be done alongside other commitments such as other jobs or family life. Slimming World Consultants are trained in every aspect of running a successful group – from delivering Slimming World’s programme based on the science and psychology of behaviour change. As self-employed micro-entrepreneurs, consultants also learn how to build a successful community-based business. Barbara Small, Galway’s newest consultant, who is launching a Slimming World group in Furbo on October 27 says she can’t wait for the new challenges running her own business will bring. “For me becoming a self-employed franchisee was a great option. I wanted a job that was well paid, flexible and could fit around my busy family life and other part-time job”
Becoming a Slimming World Consultant also means becoming part of a well-loved and recognised brand with more than 50 years of experience behind it. And, more than anything, being a consultant means having an opportunity to make a real difference to people’s health and happiness. For a role that is both flexible and rewarding, Consultants earn around €150-€400 a week for working 10-15 hours.
“There is no better job in the world,” says Maura. “I’m able to spend more time with my family and fit work around life. At the same time, I have a fulfilling role helping others which gives me enormous job satisfaction. It’s win-win, that’s for sure.”
Anyone looking for a career that offers opportunities for growth and development and flexibility around family life could find that opening a Slimming World group offers the perfect solution.
