Already Got Your NPLQ?

As a qualified Lifeguard working in a large team, you’ll be allocated general cleaning and testing duties to make sure the pool is safe for guests. Once we open, or at the start of your shift, you’ll be on rotation with other Lifeguards - monitoring various activities and attractions on a 30-minute cycle, as well as supervising guest leisure activities such as Aqua Jetting. At each of the lifeguard stations you’ll be expected to maintain guest safety, whilst ensuring they are happy in their environment. Your rate of pay as a qualified Lifeguard will be £10.63 per hour.

Not Qualified?

If you haven’t got your Lifeguard qualification yet, don’t worry. If you’re a strong swimmer and show an aptitude for the job, you can join our Lifeguard training scheme. The starting salary as a Trainee Lifeguard will be £9.66 per hour. Then, at the end of the training, subject to passing your course and a successful interview, your pay will increase to £10.63 per hour. Our training course means that you can be a Lifeguard at any age of life. We take people straight from college, as well as those considering a career change. It really is an amazing opportunity.

All candidates must successfully pass a swim test in order to progress to the interview stage.
