Lifeguards (Manapou) - Kiwa Pools

Mix of permanent and seasonal positions

Are you ready to make a splash?

Kiwa Pools is a brand-new multi-purpose pool facility the whole community can enjoy. This presents you with a great opportunity to make your mark and be a part of building a vibrant, collaborative and supportive team. Although we won't be open to the public until March 2023, we want to have staff in roles approximately 6 months before the opening to allow for testing of systems and practices, as well as additional training and development.

We pull our values from the community we serve. It makes sense then that we are enthusiastic about culture in our workplace. Family and inclusivity are deep-seated in our culture. We work hard together to make our people proud and our whānau are why we are so passionate about what we do for the community here in Gisborne.

You'll be keeping your community safe while they enjoy our modern pool facility, in your new role as Manapou / Pool Lifeguard.

You will proactively supervise the pool environment and monitor the well-being and safety of pool visitors every day. Your days will be filled with joy, watching out for not only our customers (you love to make sure everyone has a smile on their face!) and also your team, putting your hand up to help anyone that needs it.

You'll bring with you…

  • A current Pool Lifeguard Practicing Certificate
  • A current First Aid qualification
  • Demonstrated experience in Pool Lifeguarding (desirable)
  • Demonstrated experience in customer service and in dealing with people from a wide range of different cultures and backgrounds (desirable)
  • The ability to remain calm when under pressure, using your initiative to resolve problems or get assistance when needed
  • Adaptability and flexibility
  • Awareness of Tikanga Maori and basic te Reo, or a desire to learn

And of course, you'll bring your can-do, positive attitude with you every day. It's what makes you a great communicator.

Don't worry if you don't have a Pool Lifeguard Practicing certificate or First Aid qualification... we provide the training necessary to get you qualified.

There are some pretty amazing benefits you can enjoy as a part of our team, such as…

  • Staff Discounts
  • Free Eye Exams
  • Reduced Health Insurance
  • Growth and Development opportunities

And more! At Kiwa Pools, we see you as more than a cog in the wheel; you are a valued voice for your whanau and community.

  • Bring your whole self to work: we celebrate this and all it means.
  • Represent our diverse community and be the guardian of our rich heritage.
  • Have a hand in our legacy for Tairāwhiti's Tāngata and lead the region now and into the future.
