Active Careers

We know that sometimes there’s no better substitute than hearing real-life stories from people in the job. Our video profile series brings you video interviews with people in great roles across our industry.

Active Careers

Our video profiles show what it’s actually like to have an active career, and all the different pathways into this great industry. We ask people in the job how they found the role, what they love about it, and what skills they’ve needed to succeed.

Our interviews are with people working in all levels and facets of the industry, from swimming pool staff to grounds managers at major stadiums.

Hear from Personal Trainers, Outdoor Rec Instructors, Gymnastics Coaches, and more!

AQIA’s mission is two-fold.

We exist to make it easier for community-level organisations and clubs to operate in their local communities, and to find the right people for their team.
