Recreation Assistants (Lifeguards)
Based: Highbury Leisure Centre SALARY: 12.66
Shifts incl. evenings and weekends
GLL is looking for Recreation Assistants to work at Highbury Leisure Centre in the borough of Islington. If you have the talent and ambition to join us as a Lifeguard, there's never been a more exciting time to progress with a sector leader. This is more than a Lifeguard job - it's a career. Professional development is just the start. To ensure you stay at the top of your game, we provide training with practical and theory elements too.
Pool safety can't be underestimated - and neither can the responsibility that comes with this vital lifeguarding role. Our scale means we can also offer scope to progress, and variety like nowhere else - from regular pool rotations, supervising and cleaning the pool area, to setting up equipment and delivering a first-class customer service when dealing with queries. Do your job well, and there shouldn't ever be an emergency. But if the unexpected should happen, you'll be equipped with the skills to potentially save a life.
If you're calm under pressure, highly responsible and a natural with people from all walks of life, this is your chance to develop as a Lifeguard. We look for integrity, a can-do attitude and a real focus on customer service. Passion and personality will also stand you in good stead, combined with knowledge of health and safety legislation and a National Pool Lifeguard Qualification. A great team player, you'll make sure our customers have the best possible experience - in terms of enjoyment, safety and hygiene.
In return, we offer a range of benefits that you'd expect from the UK's largest leisure provider:
Ride to work scheme
Discounted membership at our leisure centres
The opportunity to join the GLL Society and have a say in how we're run plus associated social events
Ongoing training and development to help you to be the best
