Ashleigh Phillips has been with Belgravia Leisure since February of 2019. Ashleigh says, “I started as a swim teacher at Franklin Pool and Leisure (NZ), and then moved to Swim School Coordinator at Franklin Pool and Leisure (NZ). Then in December 2020, I moved to the role of Venue Manager at Huntly Aquatic Centre (NZ).”
What have been some of your highlights/magic moments working with Belgravia Leisure in New Zealand?
“One of the magic moments would have been winning an award at our New Zealand Conference in 2019. A highlight would be the opportunities and growth that Belgravia Leisure has to offer. When I started as a swim teacher, I didn’t think within two years that I would be given the opportunity to become a Venue Manager,” Ashleigh explained.
