Job Details




We have various working contracts available, casual, part time and full time, and our salaries and pay rates are very competitive.

The centre we are recruiting for is Oasis Beach Pool, Cardington Rd, Bedford MK42 0BZ

We are looking for local people who are interested in stepping into a career in the Leisure Industry, or add to their existing skill-set and experience.

The Recruitment Open Day will be held as follows: 

LOCATION: Kempston Pool, Hillgrounds Rd, Kempston, Bedford MK42 8SZ

DATE: Wednesday 5th May 2021
TIME: 10am - 3pm

There will be a swim test as part of the Recruitment Open Day so please don't forget your swim kit!! 

If you are successful at the swim test, you will also have an individual, face-to-face interview. Those individuals that are successful after both stages may be given a *conditional offer of employment (if you already hold a NPLQ) or will be offered a place on a NPLQ course with a view of employment once qualified.

Successful candidates will need to be able to attend a **National Pool Lifeguard Qualification course, which will be running for 5 days, starting: Monday 10th May 2021

**If you are unable to attend the course dates and you do not currently hold a NPLQ, unfortunately we would not be able to consider your application at this stage.


In order to be considered for one of our positions, you need to be a strong swimmer with excellent customer service skills. You will also need to meet the following criteria for Lifeguard positions: 

Swim 50 meters on front and back
Swim 50 meters within 65 seconds 
Tow a casualty 25 meters within 65 seconds 
Recover a casualty from the deepest part of the pool 
Tread water in deep water for 30 seconds 
Climb out of the pool unaided without using steps or ladder
Read a sign at the far end of the pool

We invest heavily in the development of all of our employees, allowing you to reach your full potential. Many of our Senior Managers started off as lifeguards and you may be interested in our Management Development Programme too, which develops front-line staff into future managers.

To register your interest in the Recruitment Open Day, please apply below, and attend on the day by reporting to reception before the start time.

We look forward to meeting you!





Applicants who gain a 'conditional' job offer will be required to undertake appropriate checks and referencing before commencing employment. If the role you have been offered requires you to work with children or vulnerable adults or in an environment that deems necessary, the hiring manager will inform you if a DBS is applicable. If a DBS is undertaken your offer of employment will be subject to a satisfactory DBS check.

In line with the Immigration, Nationality and Asylum Act, all applicants will be expected to provide proof of eligibility to work in the UK if invited to interview. Fusion Lifestyle recognises the benefits of a diverse workforce and we therefore welcome applications from all backgrounds and all sections of the community.
