Christchurch City Council looks to recruit staff for new Linwood pool complex

Christchurch City Council looks to recruit staff for new Linwood pool complex
June 4, 2021

With Te Pou Toetoe: Linwood Pool due to open later this year, Christchurch City Council is looking to recruit lifeguards, swim education instructors, recreation tutors, group fitness and aqua fitness instructors, and customer experience representatives who can help ensure that people using the facility get the most out of their visit.

The $22 million facility on the corner of Smith Street and Linwood Avenue will have a multi-use 25-metre lane pool, a deep water splash pool for ‘manus’, a family spa pool, a learn-to-swim pool, and a pool and water deck for toddlers.

There will also be community meeting rooms and a kitchen, while outside there will be picnic tables, tennis and multi-use courts, cycle stands, parking and plenty of open areas for all ages to enjoy.

Council Head of Recreation, Sports and Events Nigel Cox notes “Te Pou ToeToe: Linwood Pool is going to be a great community facility and we want a great team from the community.”

The new $22 million pool complex in Linwood, Christchurch was gifted the name Te Pou Toetoe by local rūnanga Te Ngāi Tūāhuriri.

Cox advises the name Te Pou Toetoe reflects both the local environment and the passing of knowledge and adds “the term ‘Pou’ is a reference to both the building itself, and to the way we pass knowledge from person to person, and generation to generation.”

People who want more information about applying can contact Carlee Hattrill, Recruitment Advisor with the Council, at carlee.hattrill@ccc.govt.nz or 03 941 5808.
