Instructor Wanted
 

When looking for new instructors or staff owner tend to look within their schools for students with the potential to meet their staffing needs. While this is certainly a great place to start, it does limit the owner to find the best person for the job, as normally there is not many students or parents available for hire. Plus an owner should not settle with a student or parent for a position just because they are within your studio, within your comfort zone, and so readily available. Only pick a person cause they are a great fit.

Thus owners that are looking for staff need to feel comfortable looking outside their schools. With our PMA business system, it really does matter if you choose someone from the outside, someone that trained in a different style from different organizations, or sometimes, they have not had any formal martial arts training. One of the best program managers I ever had was a lady that I found in my fitness kickboxing program, know she is a very successful real estate broker.

Here are a couple idea to help you locate future instructors and staff.

Run a Facebook Ad

I just ran a Facebook ad for the market of Nashville Tennessee, and in a short period of time, I have had over 25 people fill out our online applications.

Here is how it works…..

Step One: Facebook Ad Design 

Demographics: Men, Women, or Men and Women, depending on what you are looking for. Ages 18 – 40, again this depends on what you are looking for. In the areas that you are looking to pull from. I would start with your city and it’s surroundings and if you are in a small town, include any towns bigger in proximity. Conversely, owners that schools are in great markets could run an ad nationwide, people will move for a great opportunity. I mean who would not want to live in a city like Miami, Denver, Dallas or almost anywhere in Florida!
