“Given the links between COVID-19 and obesity, I know lots of people are worrying about their weight more than ever before, so there’s never been a better time to help motivate people in your community and support them to take the first step of their journey, and we’re looking for consultants in the area.”

Lillian Drummond, from Washington, a Slimming World consultant for more than 25 years, said: “When you see people succeed in anything, even if they’ve just lost a bit of weight, it is fantastic, they go from a caterpillar into a butterfly.

"I have so many highlights from such a long career as a consultant but I think the most memorable is when member a couple joined to lose weight for IVF. Amazingly after a couple of months of losing weight they fell pregnant naturally and stayed with group and Slimming World right through their pregnancy. For me being part of that is indescribable.”

Consultants can earn between £100 – £400 a week for working 10-20 hours. As well as consultant vacancies, Slimming World is also recruiting experienced managers to help co-ordinate across the UK and Ireland. For more information about contact Sue on 07557 028637 or visit
