AIF Reaches First Milestone with HealthyPeople

Aug 29, 2023  |  Published by AIF

AIF is pleased to announce that over 100 AIF Warriors have joined the fitness industry recruitment platform, HealthyPeople!

HealthyPeople is transforming how fitness graduates connect with employers, aiming to alleviate workforce shortages across gyms and fitness facilities Australia-wide through a technology-enabled, people-first approach in graduate employment and industry connection.

With a suite of offerings including blog articles, resume writing and interview tips as well as employer spotlights, HealthyPeople continually strive to inform their database of all current opportunities in the marketplace as well as providing the tools to navigate the conversation and recruitment process on your own terms.

General Manager of Business Development at AIF, Simon McDonald recently commented,  “To say we are proud of this achievement is an understatement.  We truly believe that the partnership between HealthyPeople and the Australian Institute of Fitness is just getting started. Having a clear pathway for AIF students and graduates to connect with their future employers ensures that it removes the barriers for searching for their first or next role! On the other hand, creating a mechanism whereby industry can liaise directly with AIF graduates and students in one location is one small step in bridging the gap of a considerable skills shortage currently being felt across the health and fitness industry.  We wish to thank Dennis and the team for this fantastic collaboration, expanding HealthyPeople’s offering to include our Massage Therapist Graduates (those who hold a Diploma of Remedial Massage) as well as our industry-leading Fitness Graduates (those with a Certificate III or Certificate IV in Fitness).”

Dennis Hosking, Founder and Managing Director of HealthyPeople commented, “Congratulations, AIF, on reaching 100 students and alumni registered with the HealthyPeople website! It’s a clear demonstration of your commitment to making this recruiting option a success for both AIF Warriors and AIF Career Partners.” To be able to connect so easily with industry students is unique and I urge all employers to avoid taking it for granted. This service is, after all, free!”

AIF looks forward to seeing this partnership go from strength to strength, servicing the next generation of fitness and wellness professionals, and providing readily accessible pathways to fitness industry employment.
