  • Opportunities for both experienced lifeguards and confident swimmers looking to upskill
  • Fantastic benefits, including free use of the facility


He angitūtanga: The opportunity


There’s never a dull moment at our busy and fun-filled pool facilities, and as a Lifeguard, you will play a key part in ensuring that all customers have an enjoyable but safe experience.


Your main responsibilities will include providing to all pool users with quality supervision to ensure health and safety standards are upheld; providing customers and colleagues with accurate information on pool policies, Centre facilities, and aquatic safety and supporting with the delivery of Centre programmes and classes.


He kōrero mōu: About you


You’ll already have a love for aquatics, and be committed to supporting community safety and wellbeing. Previous experience as a Lifeguard is advantageous, but if you’re a confident swimmer looking to upskill we can support you with training. Having clear and effective communication skills is key, as is being practically-minded and using your imitative where required.


Ideally, you’ll hold a First Aid Certificate as well as a Pool Lifeguard Practising Certificate, however, we can also support with training to help you obtain these. The centre operates 7 days a week, so reliability and commitment to working early, late and weekend shifts are crucial.


Ngā āhuatanga kei a mātou: What we offer


You’ll have access to a range of fantastic Auckland Council benefits, including an annual zoo pass and a range of partnership discounts. And as you will be a Leisure Centre employee, you will enjoy free use of the facilities. To find out more about Glenfield Stadium Pool, please visit our website.


Multiple permanent part-time opportunities available, working 10 hours per week, rostered Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday rosters.
