Derry woman Georgina McCarter has gone from losing a whopping six stone 4lbs with Slimming World to building a career with the company as a consultant - helping 100s of members achieve their goals and dreams.
And now she is ready to move further up the career ladder after Slimming World offered her a manager’s role - putting her in charge of helping the Derry team of consultants.
Taking the first steps in her new role Georgina has launched a campaign to recruit more people with a passion for helping others for the “best job in the world” with a special Slimming World careers opportunity event planned at on August 26th.
Georgina, who manages a team of eight Consultants who run 15 Slimming World groups in Derry, said: “We’re going through a period of steady growth. In 45 years millions of people have changed their lives with Slimming World’s brilliant 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,” Georgina said.
“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 in aspects of nutrition and successfully running their own slimming business.”
Slimming World is looking for people who have lost weight themselves with the organisation, people who can share their own weight-loss success to build a fabulous career. 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.
Georgina added: “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.
“Just as importantly, we provide support 52 weeks of the year and our members know from the minute they first walk through the door, often when their self-esteem is at its lowest, that they will never be judged, that their details are completely confidential and that they are with people who understand them – because they’ve been Slimming World members themselves,” said Georgina.
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. In-depth training is offered with a well-respected and recognised brand that has been established for more than 40 years, and all Consultants get the benefit of excellent support from more than 200 head office staff based in Alfreton, Derbyshire.
Anyone looking for a career that offers opportunities for growth and development and flexibility around family life could find that opening a Slimming World group offers the perfect solution. There are opportunities across the whole of the UK and Ireland.
