Personal Trainer
Posted 4 months ago

Our valued female Middle Eastern client, a high-status but private family in Qatar, are seeking to employ a highly-qualified and enthusiastic personal-trainer, with excellent communications skills, and multiple skills. You will work, mostly one-to-one, with a female family member. They wish to hire someone with a real passion for training and healthy lifestyle – including a knowledge of diet and nutrition, who takes pride in keeping up-to-date with the latest trends and developments in health and fitness.
The lady wishes to have a daily 2-hour personal work-out routine provided, 5 days per week, using a variety of techniques combinations, including the use of cardio and weight machines, class-style studio, exercise to music, aqua work-outs, swimming, outdoor cycling, etc.
You would also be expected to work with other family members, including a 19-year old daughter and to supervise smaller children (current ages 5 and 7) when they use the swimming-pool – a life-saving qualification would therefore be an advantage. On occasion, you would also provide cover for the personal trainer who works with the main principal (male) during that trainer’s days off and holidays.
The extensive family property compound includes all the required facilities: swimming pools, well-equipped gym with cardio and weight machines plus studio floor space, extensive grounds/gardens for outdoors work. You would be responsible for monitoring the equipment for any maintenance requirements and liaising with the House Manager and gym technicians to organise timely repairs as necessary. You would also keep yourself informed of the latest fitness trends and technology, so that you can recommend updates/improvements to the equipment and/or the layout of the gym facilities.
In addition to being hands-on with the training, you provide suitable healthy nutrition plans and liaise with the Executive Chef so that dietary needs are met.
On occasion, you will liaise with the Principal’s Lady’s Maid to ensure that she has the correct gym clothing, kit and gear for the various planned activities, whether at home or during frequent travels. Here again, your interest in fitness trends will enable you to suggest what might be procured to best serve the Principal’s needs in suitable style. You would also take responsibility for any gym equipment and gym kit that may be packed for travel.
You must be willing to accompany the Principal on travels to a variety of locations, including other family properties, their yacht and sometimes hotels, adapting the work-outs to suit the available facilities in each case. There are fully equipped gym facilities at all the family properties and on their yacht. Travel will be frequent, sometimes with only 1-2 days’ notice, so you must be adaptable and organised.
The contract is for a 6-day working week, with one day off each week – hours flexible according to season and location. You will have one month of holiday each year and an annual return ticket to home destination will be provided. Your flights at the start and end of the contract will also be supplied.
The contract also includes full medical care, lunch and dinner provided in the staff dining area and the use of a car.
It is essential that you are a non-smoker, do not suffer from motion sickness and are in excellent health, with a high level of personal fitness. You will require a full medical review and a clear CRB/DBS check prior to commencing in post. You will have documentation for your high-level training qualifications from an internationally-recognised/accredited organisation.
The accommodation provided in Doha will be in a shared (female-only) two-bedroom apartment: you would have your own bedroom, share bathroom, kitchen and living room with one other staff member. During travels, you will be accommodated accordingly. Salary £2000 tax free per month (HU3153)
