Lifeguards- Courses & Training
Fusion is hiring strong swimmers to work as LIFEGUARDS and help keep our customers safe, whilst enjoying our facilities at various locations around Mendip/ Somerset.
We have a NPLQ course taking place in Wells from 24th - 28th October and there are permanent jobs (various shifts) available for those individuals that successfully complete the course.
Working as a lifeguard is a responsible position but is also a fun way to earn extra money whilst making a difference. Joining Fusion as a lifeguard could be your first step towards a rewarding career within the Leisure Industry. Equally, qualifying as a Lifeguard could also guarantee part-time work whilst studying or to fit around your other commitments.
Fusion Lifestyle is committed to developing staff and many of our Lifeguards progress on to become Fitness Instructors or Swim Instructors, thanks to our award winning training programs. There are training programmes and opportunities to progress to management too!
