Seasonal Lifeguards - Timaru District Council

Make the splash this summer - we're on the lookout for enthusiastic individuals to join our team at the district pools until the end of the season (20 March 2022)!

As our newest Lifeguards on the block, you will provide awesome customer service, while ensuring a safe and fantastic aquatic experience for our community. You'll have the ability to stay calm in pressured situations and have a keen eye for spotting potential hazards and preventing incidents.

Previous Lifeguard experience/training and a current First Aid certificate is preferred but not essential. You may be a confident swimmer looking to upskill - full training will be provided to the successful applicants. All applicants must be able to complete a practical assessment, including swimming 200m within six minutes, retrieving an object from the deepest part (3.5m) of the pool, and treading water for five minutes.

We have a number of part/full-time hours available at our four pools (CBay, Geraldine, Pleasant Point and Temuka). Hours will be on a rostered basis, Monday to Sunday, so the ability to work early morning, late evening, weekend and public holiday shifts is essential.

If you're ready to dive in, let us know what dates you're available and what pool you're keen to work at.
