Kick start a career in Aquatics by becoming a YMCA Lifeguard!
We are now looking for Lifeguards to come join the team at our Ku-ring-gai Fitness & Aquatic Centre. You will be available to work various shifts Monday to Friday between the hours of 4.30AM - 9PM and on the weekends from 7AM - 6PM.
About your new role
Lifeguards are focused in public safety and making sure that our patrons are safe while they use our facilities. They love seeing those big wide smiles each day, as patron's splash around having fun in our pools, while gaining confidence and becoming safe in and around the water. As well as identifying potential risk factors and taking steps to reduce those risks, lifeguards are positive role models in an effort to build strong people, strong families and strong communities.
All our team have the following qualities in common:
- Love of the water
If this sounds familiar and you are motivated by creating a fun, safe and enjoyable environment for our patrons, then we have the opportunity you have been dreaming of!
Approximately 3 million patrons walk through our doors every year to use our facilities throughout NSW and the ACT and it's the best feeling to have knowing that you can leave work at the end of your shift and know that you have protected a life by being aware of your surroundings as a lifeguard.
We are now after the next generation of friendly, passionate and enthusiastic Lifeguards to join our team in this fun and rewarding role. In addition to the satisfaction of protecting our patrons around the water, we offer:
- Supportive team environment
- Discounted access to some of our services across the Y
- Flexible hours
- Career pathways in the aquatics field
If this sounds like the job for you, apply today!
To be successful in this role, you will have
- Current CPR
- Current First Aid
- Pool Lifeguard License
- Teacher of Swimming and Water Safety License (desirable)
