To ensure our customers have a great and safe experience whilst using the pool we are looking for a part-time Lifeguard (Activity Leader) for our centre in Bridgwater, Trinity Sports and Leisure.

Reliable and be able to work on a shift rota

As you will be working on a rota you need to be on time for your shift to ensure that the pool continues to run safely. A typical rota can consist of early mornings, mid-day shift, evenings and weekends. 19.25 hours per week.

A people person, proactive and helpful

Engage with all our customers to ensure they receive a positive experience and also ensure they adhere to the pool rules. In addition to lifeguarding duties, you will be asked to do other duties such as cleaning and equipment setups.

Alert and calm

Remain fully alert whilst on poolside and should there be an emergency be able to stay calm and act professionally and efficiently.

Have a passion for swimming and can swim well

Of course, to pass your lifeguard qualification you need to pass a swim test but you can also pass on your passion for swimming to our customers.

Willing to Learn

You need to attend monthly lifeguarding training and you will have to re-qualify for your lifeguard qualification every 2 years.
