Get Active are proud to have a diverse and professional work force. Currently employing over 70 members of staff ranging from gymnastic coaches to rugby coaches and fully qualified teachers to play workers you can be sure your child will be safe and having the time of their lives.
I have worked with Get Active since 2012, I used to play for Reading Academy from the age of 8 until I was 18 where I started working with children and helping them learn many various sporting skills.
I started off as a part-time Coach and progressed my way up to Managing Director as well as looking after Extra Curriculum Activities.
I pride myself in creating the best environment possible where children can learn new skills as well as enjoying their time throughout their sporting journeys.
I joined the Get Active Sports family in August 2019 and felt like I was welcomed into a very hard working and caring team. Each one of us is a team player and we are all positive, dedicated people who love our jobs and enjoy seeing the difference our provisions make to the lives of many children and parents.
As Office Manager, most of my role includes taking care of my account schools and making sure they have everything they need, as well as assisting with financial aspects of the business. Based in our Head Office, I’m always around to speak to should parents/guardians have any enquiries or need any support.
Get Active is a reliable and dedicated provision and we all believe in putting 110% effort into everything we do. Keep an eye on all of our social media pages to see what we’re up to!
Head of Operations
I first started working for Get Active part time in 2013 as a Sports Coach whilst studying BTEC in Sport, a football coaching course and a Level 2 fitness instructing qualification at sixth form. After this I joined the apprenticeship programme with Get Active, where I quickly gained more qualifications; including a BTEC and level 1 & 2 in PE and School Sport. I was then offered a full time role leading PPA, Afterschool clubs and supervising a holiday camp. I was also involved behind the scenes in organising resources and equipment ready for holiday camps.
In 2017, I decided to chase the sun to Turkey, working at a holiday village for 6 months each time over a 2 year period. This was an incredible adventure for me; I was able to gain new experiences and ideas along the way and lead activities for guests of all ages.
Upon my return in 2019, I was offered the role as Active Care & Holiday Camp co-ordinator and I am so glad that I accepted. My day generally consists of brainstorming crazy ideas, themes, craft activities and sports for the products we offer and then organising everything involved to make them happen. I am dedicated to ensuring I am providing the best possible activities for the children who use our clubs so they have an enjoyable time with us!
I am proud to work for Get Active; the team I work with really are incredible – we are just like a little family. We work so strongly as a team in everything we do, with a lot of support and respect for each other. Our days always consist of a lot of hard work, but also fun and laughter. I couldn’t ask for a better team to work with whilst heading into my 7th year at Get Active. We really are the DREAM TEAM!
I am a new member of Get active, having started in June 2022. I have been made to feel very welcome from day one and love working here. Prior to moving to Get Active, I had to make a big decision to move away from being a Secondary School PE Teacher and feel fortunate to have been given the opportunity to take on this role.
Ever since I was a child, I have loved playing a range of sports and thoroughly enjoy passing my enthusiasm to others. Therefore, making this role perfect for me.
