If you’re a Slimming World member or you’ve ever been to a Slimming World group, you’ll know that our amazing Consultants are such an important part of every weight loss journey. That unique combination of our Food Optimising eating plan, Body Magic activity programme and group support – personalised to each member – is what makes Slimming World so very different, and our Consultants are at the very heart of providing expert guidance, tools and inspiration to help members make lasting changes and achieve their slimming goals. 

We’re always looking for caring and committed people to run their own Slimming World group as a self-employed franchise business. Could you be the person who helps to transform lives and make weight loss dreams come true?

Here, we answer the common questions you might have about becoming a Slimming World Consultant – and if you’d like to know more, our Become a Slimming World Consultant website has all the information you need.

What qualifications do I need? 

You don’t need any formal qualifications to apply. If the role is right for you, you’ll receive all the training and support you need to succeed, delivered by our expert team at our state-of-the-art Slimming World Academy with other trainee Consultants from around the UK and Republic of Ireland. 

Do I need to be a Slimming World member to apply? 

Yes. If you’re a current Slimming World member, or have been a member in the past, we’d love to hear from you. As a member, you’ll bring the added experience of having lost weight with us – whether you’re close to or at your target. You’ll have fallen in love with Food Optimising, our healthy way of eating. You’ll have been motivated to get more active through our activity programme, Body Magic. Above all, you’ll be passionate about sharing with others the inspiration, care and empowering support you discovered in your Slimming World group.

What personal qualities do I need? 

We look for people with a positive outlook, who genuinely care about the health and happiness of others. Whether you’re confident and outgoing or more reserved, as a Consultant, you’ll be kind, warm, non-judgmental –sometimes firm, and often funny – as you offer support and encouragement to your group. 

Anna Mangan is celebrating 10 years as a Slimming World Consultant. She says: 

“The community that’s created in Slimming World groups is absolutely magical. Having a place where there’s no judgement and no humiliation, where you can really get to the root of any weight loss issues and feel truly uplifted by people who understand, makes such a difference. 

Of course, as much as I genuinely love helping other people, my role has to work for me and the life I want to lead, too. Having so much flexibility around where, when and how much I want to work is so freeing. I have the power to set my own work/life balance, and to influence my own earning power, too.”
