Job Description

Are you looking to start a career within the leisure industry? Well becoming a lifeguard is a great first step!

Lifeguards are responsible for ensuring the health and safety of the pool and its users.

In order to become a qualified lifeguard you are required to attend a 5 day course which includes both theory and practical learning. At the end of the 5 days you will complete a practical assessment. If passed, you will then be a qualified lifeguard for 2 years.

To ensure you are suitable for the course you will need to be a strong swimmer and confident you can complete the following tasks:

  • Swim 100m continuously on your front and back
  • Tread water for 30 seconds
  • Jump/dive into deep water
  • Climb out of a pool unaided
  • Surface dive to the floor of the pool

The cost of the course is £250.

There is currently one course available:

31st May - 4th June 

Once your course has been completed you will then have the opportunity to register with 4Leisure to pick up flexible lifeguard shifts near you. We offer a range of part time and full time hours across various locations.

As a 4Leisure lifeguard you will earn £10p/h (inclusive of holiday) and pay is weekly.
