Slimming experts in Lisburn are celebrating a successful year after helping 1500 people lose 100 stone per week.

Now they have launched a campaign to recruit more people with a passion for helping others with a special Slimming World careers opportunity event planned at The Beechlawn Hotel, Dunmurry on January 8, at 6pm.

Jill Ellis, who manages a team of consultants who run 24 Slimming World groups in Lagan Valley says: “We’re going through a period of steady growth. In 47 years millions of people have changed their lives with Slimming World’s combination of a hunger-busting eating plan, increased activity and weekly group support.

“Now, with obesity at an all-time high – 30 million adults (62%) in the UK are overweight or obese – and government predictions that 80% of men and 70% of women will be overweight or obese in the next decade – the demand for our unique warm and friendly approach has never been greater.

“At Slimming World we have the best eating plan in the world where members can, and do, lose weight without ever having to go hungry,” says Jill. “We have the best understanding of the psychology of slimmers and we choose Consultants for their empathy, warmth and understanding. We have the best training in the business too. Every Consultant who comes on board goes through an in depth training programme and is awarded diplomas.”

Slimming World is looking for people who have lost weight themselves with the organisation, people who can share their own weight-loss success. There are also vacancies for experienced managers to help co-ordinate the work in the area and ensure that our unique support is available in every community.

Jill adds: “Every Slimming World group helps members achieve long-term success through healthy lifestyle changes. Food Optimising is a unique and healthy eating plan which satisfies the biggest of appetites. It encourages people to fill up on unlimited amounts of satisfying foods such as meat, fish, poultry, vegetables, fruit, eggs, pasta and much more, and to enjoy meals with the whole family. Meals like curry and rice, lasagne, Sunday roasts and even fish and chips. Members love the fact that they aren’t restricted.”

Slimming World Consultants are all former members. The role is part-time, with the potential to earn £100- £400 a week for working 10-20 flexible hours as a self-employed franchisee. Consultants get the benefit of excellent support from more than 200 head office staff based in Alfreton, Derbyshire.

Slimming World magazine, which is produced at Head Office, is the highest selling title in the diet and health sector.
