Slimming World job opportunities available all over the Southwest
As we return to normal across the UK and Ireland, Slimming World, the best loved weight loss organization is looking for successful members with a passion for helping others.
Slimming World is inviting people who’ve successfully lost weight at a local group – either former or current members — to start their own weight loss group.
Margaret Roberts, who manages a team of over 50 Consultants who run 114 Slimming World groups in Cornwall and West Devon, 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 and learn to stay slim for life. 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. 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 to building and promoting a successful local business.
“As restrictions are being lifted, and given the links between COVID-19 and obesity, I know lots of people are worrying about their weight more than ever before, so there’s never been a better time to help motivate people in your community and support them to take the first step of their journey, and we’re looking for Consultants in the area,” she says.
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 £100-£400 a week for working 10-20 hours.
“It’s amazing to know that I’m helping people to get the same feeling that I that I had when I’d lost 8 stone,” says local girl Claire Vincent.
Initially I was very sceptical about taking up the opportunity of becoming a consultant. I had thought about it for several years. Back in June 2021 I thought to myself, ‘what have I to lose by going along to the Opportunity Event? Absolutely nothing, so I joined a meeting on Zoom, there was no pressure at all, it was amazing. I was so excited and delighted to later be accepted as a Consultant.
‘Wow what can I say? It really is the best job in the world! I love all my members, I love the training and Head Office is just the best place to go. I earned double my franchise fee in the first evening and I am now reducing my full-time job hours so I can progress with Slimming World. All this within just 8 weeks! Don’t get me wrong you have to work at it but it is so achievable. If you have ever thought about it, don’t hesitate, go for it! The opportunities are endless!’
As well as Consultant vacancies Slimming World is recruiting for experienced managers to help co-ordinate the work in areas across the UK and Ireland. For more information about please contact Margaret Roberts on 07825 206877, or visit slimmingworld.co.uk/careers.
About Slimming World
Slimming World was founded by Margaret Miles-Bramwell OBE in Derbyshire in 1969 and has become the UK and Ireland’s leading weight loss organisationwith more people choosing to attend a Slimming World group each week than any other weight loss programme. We support hundreds of thousands of people, both in our groups and online, to lose weight and to adopt new habits to stay slim for life.
Over the years our founding principles haven’t changed:
- Our unique programme is based on a powerfully motivating support system called IMAGE (Individual Motivation and Group Experience) Therapy. Underpinned by a deep understanding of the psychology of overweight people, and incorporating the most effective sustainable behaviour change techniques, IMAGE Therapy is designed to inspire and motivate slimmers to make positive changes and to develop new, healthier habits around food and activity.
- Food Optimising is our healthy eating plan, based on the liberating concept of Free Food. We encourage our members to fill up on those foods that are naturally lower in energy density (calories per gram) and also highly satisfying while limiting foods that are highest in fat and sugar and are less satisfying, so they lose weight without ever feeling hungry or deprived and without having to weigh, measure or count everything they eat.
- Our activity programme, Body Magic, encourages members to become more active, more often in ways that they enjoy, until regular physical activity becomes an intrinsic part of daily routine.
Above all, at the heart of everything we do, lies our passion for treating every member with genuine care, empathy and respect.
We’re proud to work with the NHS, Public Health England, The Royal College of Midwives and others to help shape the future of weight management in the UK.
