Help people of all ages live well & for longer by giving them a safe and happy experience when they come swimming. Pool Lifeguards ensure swimmers and nonswimmers keep coming back to their local swimming pool time & time again to enjoy activities such as lane swimming, pool parties, family swims and swimming lessons - creating lasting happy memories of their local swimming pool.

If you enjoy working as part of a team & making people smile, our Aspiring Pool Lifeguard role is perfect for you! It’s also a great opportunity to:

  • Jump or dive into deep water
  • Swim 50m in under 60 seconds
  • Swim 100m continuously on your front, followed by 100m on your back
  • Tread water for 30 seconds
  • Surface dive to the deepest part of the pool
  • Climb out of the pool unaided

You must be 16 years or over on the day of the assessment (usually the last day of the course).

Our next course is scheduled for 25th – 30th April at Macclesfield, but other courses are available if you can't make these dates.

We’re particularly keen to hear from people available to work during the daytime or term time only, but do still apply if you can only do evenings and weekends as flexible hours are available.
