“What I love about Carlile that there is opportunity for everyone. I started teaching while I was at university, and I am now on the leadership team in head office. What’s more, my roles have evolved to suit both my professional development and my changing family needs.”

CamillaManager, People & Culture

“I’ve loved working at Carlile over the years as both a preschool swim teacher and in customer service! The best thing about working here is being part of a passionate team of all ages and getting to know the families and children who come to Carlile to learn to swim!”

StaceyCustomer Service, Castle Cove

“I have experienced the Carlile Swimming system, first as a parent, and for the last five years as an instructor. This system delivers excellent outcomes, from learn-to-swim through to advanced strokes and beyond. And as an instructor, I've found that the famous Carlile Swimming culture is authentic right through the organisation.”

TomTeacher, Lane Cove West

“One of my greatest pleasures as a teacher at Carlile is in watching the children grow. Starting as wide eyed first time Waterbabies learning to catch the wall, we are part of so many life milestones not just swimming ones. Learning to walk, separating from their parents, going to primary school, starting high school and finishing as active young teenagers who aspire to return and teach swimming themselves.”

SimoneAM Coordinator, Killarney Heights

“I am very passionate about working at Carlile, meeting so many families and being a part of the swimming journey of these children. The skills I have gained will be invaluable in my future endeavours.”

RebeccaSupervisor, Cherrybrook

“At Carlile Swimming the opportunities provided to staff are enormous! A lot of customers never holistically understand the extent the staff works on behind the scenes to fully maximise a child’s capability to swim. This is what makes the experience of working for Carlile Swimming more enjoyable, as we all are making a contribution to society!”

JuliaTeacher, Cross Street Ryde

“Working at Carlile has provided me with invaluable skills that are an asset for life. Carlile delivers an exceptional program, focussing on the needs of each individual child. I am proud to work for a company that is continually striving for quality and excellence.”

JacintaSupervisor, Cross Street Ryde

“I have recently joined the team at Carlile Swimming, teaching the preschool program and absolutely love it! The staff are so positive and friendly and there are loads of professional development opportunities so you are always learning and developing new skills.”

AlisonTeacher, Cross Street Ryde

“What started out as a casual role lead to so much more! Leading into a passion and a full time career which has provided me with countless opportunities to learn and grow as a leader and individual. Working for Carlile is more than just a job, it's a hobby!”
