Team Members, Lifeguard
Our Manurewa Pool and Leisure facilities are more popular than ever, and as a Lifeguard you will play a key part in ensuring that all customers have an enjoyable but safe experience.


Shift details:


40 hours working rostered shifts between Saturday and Friday

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


Ngā āhuatanga kei a mātou: What we offer 

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


We aim to upskill and progress your career, so if you wish to train and take on other functions within our centres such as Learn to Swim Instructor, Fitness Instructor or Recreation Assistant the opportunity is there! By the same token, if we occasionally need some help in other areas such as on our front desk and general customer service duties, as a team member, you may be called on to cover these areas if short staffed or at peak periods.


You can also follow a career path and progress into Lead and Team Leader positions both in part time and full-time positions.

We also have vacancies for Full Time Lifeguards as well as Part Time Learn to Swim Instructors, Recreations Assistants, Customer Service reps and more.
