Dean Horridge, CEO and Founder of Nunchuck Recruitment Ltd, has over 35 years’ experience working across a range of sectors, including education, leisure and health & fitness. Dean is also Founder of the UK’s leading children’s activity provider, Fit For Sport.
Throughout Dean’s career he has made it his mission to tackle child inactivity. As head of PE in a primary school he was disappointed at the lack of physical activity his pupils undertook during school holidays. Realising the effects that inactivity was having on his pupils, Dean started Fit For Sport weekend and holiday activity clubs for school children in 1991.
These continue to operate (with over 100 activity camps nationwide) and Fit For Sport has evolved and grown dramatically. It now employs over 700 staff, supports over 350 schools, and trains 23% of the UK’s activity leaders.
During his 25 years with Fit For Sport, Dean has hired and developed some of the country’s leading physical activity educators who have gone on to take highly esteemed positions within the leisure industry. This, coupled with his vast experience of working as a teacher, ensures that Nunchuck Recruitment boast the essential expertise in finding ideal candidates across both sectors
