A support organisation for people wanting to shed the pounds is on the lookout for successful slimmers to help other do the same.
Slimming World wants people who’ve successfully lost weight at a local group to start their own weight loss group.
Margaret Roberts, who manages a team of more than 50 consultants who between them run 114 Slimming World groups in Cornwall and West Devon, said: “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.
Consultants can earn between £100-£400 a week for working 10 to 20 hours.
Margaret added: “As restrictions are being lifted, and given the links between Covid 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.”
Claire Vincent, from Camborne, lost 8st, is now running her own group in her local area.
She said: “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. Initially I was very sceptical about taking up the opportunity of becoming a consultant. But 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 …….
