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 £260.
There is currently one course available:
12th April - 16th April
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.
