Our pool and leisure facilities are more popular than ever and as Lifeguard for Lloyd Elsmore Pool and Leisure Centre, you will play a key part in ensuring that all customers not only have a fantastic experience but a safe one. Your main responsibilities will include:

  • Providing to all pool users with quality supervision to ensure health and safety standards are upheld;

You'll have a passion for aquatics but also excellent communication skills, maturity, and resilience. You'll be making a difference in our local community by motivating people to be active while helping to provide a safe environment in which to do so. Being practically minded as you spot people in difficulty and using your initiative will be key. 


Ideally, you hold a current First Aid Certificate as well as a current Pool Lifeguard Practising Certificate, however, we can also support you with training to help you obtain these.
