What's it like to work here...
Find out about some of the people who work here at Nottinghamshire YMCA...
Danny started a twelve week work placement with us almost three years ago. He is now five months into his role as Duty Manager at YMCA gym.
He took a placement with us in 2013, looking to start a career in fitness and personal training. During his placement, he learned how to interact with customers on a day-to-day basis. He grew confident in his role and knew he could do more to help the YMCA gym. Once he got his fitness qualification, he started teaching classes.
After his 12 week placement finished, he stayed on as a casual fitness instructor, covering extra shifts.
In 2015, he filled the role of Group Co-ordinator, overseeing several classes. This year, he became Duty Manager for the YMCA gym.
Danny says: “I am so happy to be in this role and I want to keep doing more for the organisation. This year I started the running club and I'm going to work hard to get it off the ground. Watch this space!”
