Lifeguards - Wellington Pools (Fulltime)

Aquatics / Education / Safety /

Our pool network across Wellington City can't operate without our frontline Lifeguards, playing a key role in helping people in our communities get the most out of our venues and have a safe, enjoyable experience.

This is a job that really does make a difference to your community. We have fun and support our community by keeping them safe.

People come first for us, so if this is the case for you, and you want the chance to make a positive difference to people's lives then we would like to hear from you. 

Forget your preconceptions of what a lifeguard looks like - you just need to be a confident swimmer and be great with people.

We provide all the training necessary!

As a minimum you'll gain the following qualifications:

  • First Aid Level 2 Certificate
  • Pool Lifeguard Practicing Certificate - as an up and coming lifeguard, training will be delivered and assessed on-the-job at the pool. 
  • You'll benefit from being part of an organisation that grows it's people. 

You'll work in a stimulating environment, as well as receive full training and have plenty of development opportunities - lifeguards have the opportunity to progress to Assistant Duty Manager and Duty Manager roles as part of their recreation career pathway.

We have locations across Wellington City:

  • Kilbirnie (Wellington Regional Aquatic Centre)
  • Oriental Bay (Freyberg Pool)
  • Karori
  • Johnsonville (Keith Spry Pool)
  • Tawa
  • Khandallah 
  • Thorndon

We're always looking for great people to join the team - we encourage you to put your name forward if you're keen and we'll be in touch.

All roles will involve a weekend shift; let us know your availability and preferred location in your cover letter.

We have regular recruitment rounds throughout the year - so while we may not have a role that's starting straight away, we can let you know when the next induction is.
