What is the best way to find a Certified Trainer to hire as an Independant Contractor?
I have been looking to expand my business and at the point I need another person in a small studio space to work the overflow of what I bring in through marketing. Although at the moment there is not enough to employ someone. I am hoping to find another independent trainer with some clientele in place, who is looking to build their business.
Right here with IDEA FitnessConnect! Post your job opportunity right here.
Also have you tried GymJobs.com?
In addition to Michael's suggestions you can also try Craigslist, Monster.com and CareerBuilder.
You might also consider using the "Find An ACE Trainer" section on their website.
I hope this gives you some direction.
ISSA also has a place where you can place job openings. Here is the link http://www.issaonline.edu/issa-business/jobs/job-submission.cfm.
You have come to the right place.
I would also look around my neighborhood. There are many coaches out there for the school and youth leagues who may be willing to help.
But if you go on a certifying organization's website (such as ACSM) there is a Pro-Finder tool. ACSM, for example, allows their trainers to register to be listed online, and provides a city, state, phone number, and e-mail address to contact them. I know for sure other organizations have this.
And of course job postings. If you're an LLC, you may hire them as an employee. But as a sole proprietor, I just contract them independently and send them a 1099 at years' end. So don't forget to weigh the legal (financial) options.
I hope that this helps.
