New online job tool for clubs to find personal trainers
A new online job tool to help personal trainers find work and gyms and facilities to find personal trainers has been launched in Victoria.
Specifically developed for the fitness industry, The Reserve Bench (TRB) connects fitness trainers and clubs together across all types of available positions: full time, part time or last minute emergency fill-ins.
The service, which has been used by groups including Anytime Fitness, Fernwood Fitness and Goodlife Health Clubs, requires no resumes and does not include the placement of job advertisements.
A statement from TRB explains “TRB understand fitness work can be a bit unpredictable at times ... so in response, an online community was created where trainers can be found by those who need them.
“TRB is ideal for trainers who already have jobs but who want to pick up extra work because there’s no need for them to market themselves to the clubs, because TRB do it for you. The aim of TRB is not just to become the largest growing database of fitness trainers in Australia, but the most active database.
“Despite the size, every fitness business runs on the power of people, with trainers often being the heart and soul of the business because they are the reason the customers come back; in fact, the relationship built between trainer and client is the engine room of any business.
“So TRB have come up with a brand new way for fitness professionals to find work, and for clubs to find trainers – in a very easy way.
“Trainers no longer need to search for jobs, fill out forms, write or rewrite their resume and then wait for a response which can take weeks.
“Similarly, clubs save valuable time not having to write job ads, read through countless resumes or sit through tiring interviews. With just a few clicks of the mouse they can have an answer for their problem, and in some cases, even on the same day.
“The way The Reserve Bench works is just like a bench on the sideline that is full of players ready to go. Trainers are spotlighted with a free profile (approved by TRB), which details info about each trainer including the type of work they’re looking for and the locations they will work in.
“The searching club can then connect in just a few clicks. And when the trainers are contacted about a job they simply need to reply ‘yes’ or ‘no’ to the offer.
Currently opertational in Victoria, TRB plans to roll out into all other Australian states in the near future.
