He angitūtanga: The opportunity
Our pool and leisure facilities are more popular than ever, and as a Lifeguard for Glenfield Aquatics Centre, 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 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 initiative where required.
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. The centre operates 7 days a week, so reliability and commitment to working early, late and weekend shifts are crucial.

We can provide you with plenty of opportunities to upskill, including training in leadership, and the opportunity to be trained in different functions like swim school, fitness, recreation, and customer service.  

In addition to our Auckland Council benefits, as a Leisure Centre employee, you will enjoy free use of the facilities.
