Located in the centre of Hedge End, Wildern Leisure Centre was originally opened in September 1979 and has been helping the local community keep active ever since.

The Leisure Centre is on the Wildern School site, a short walk from Hedge End Village, with nearby bus stops, only five minutes from the M27 and a twenty minute walk from the train station.

Applications should be on Wildern Academy Trust application forms, our application form does differ from the standard Hampshire County Council form and individual CV’s will not be accepted. If you currently work in a school, please ensure one of your references is from your current Headteacher.

Wildern Academy Trust application forms can be downloaded from the links below. Applications can be e-mailed to hr@wildern.org or sent by post for the attention of Mrs F Mitchell, Wildern School, Wildern Lane, Hedge End, Southampton, SO30 4EJ.

Please submit your application as soon as possible as we may invite candidates to interview before the closing date. Closing Date: Midday Friday 21st January 2022

Disclaimer: due to the high volume of applications we receive, we reserve the right to close a vacancy earlier than the advertised date if we receive applications that meet the criteria. Once a vacancy has closed, we are unable to consider further applications, so please submit your application as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

Wildern Academy Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We will ensure that all our recruitment and selection practices reflect this commitment. All successful candidates will be subject to Disclosure and Barring Service checks along with other relevant employment checks.
