Applicants must currently hold level 2 UK QCF lifeguarding qualifications (such as those from the RLSS, STA, HABC, etc.). Working amongst a young team of friendly and well-motivated staff we are looking for responsible, knowledgeable and customer-driven lifeguards. Lifeguards should have a record of performing well in their previous training and be strong confident swimmers and communicators.
The post will mostly involve working as part of a small team to ensure the smooth and efficient running of swim sessions for our members and children from the school, holiday club and residential courses. Every shift normally also contains a sample of work away from the poolside as required to meet the operational needs of the business. This may include basic cleaning duties or covering the main reception desk.
Applications from lifeguards who are qualified in the use of spine boards and automated external defibrillators are particularly welcome, although training will be provided for the right candidates.
Closing date for applications is midnight on 26 November 2020. However, the vacancy may close before this, once sufficient applications have been received.
