Do you want to become a pool Lifeguard?

We have an exciting opportunity to become part of the Leisure team at Atherstone Leisure Complex.

If unqualified, you will receive the RLSS National Pool Lifeguard Qualification (NPLQ) upon completion of a week-long intensive course, prior to commencing employment. The course is expected to be held from Tuesday 28 May to Saturday 1 June, with the exam on Sunday 2 June 2019, which you would be expected to attend. However, if you were unavailable then, an alternative date could be negotiated. You must be able to meet the lifeguard course pre-requisites as detailed in the job pack. This is a great opportunity to gain the qualification and employment as a Lifeguard.

Duties of the post include the supervision of the pools and members of public, responding effectively to emergency situations, using poolside safety equipment as appropriate. You will be responsible for setting up of equipment, and the cleanliness of the pool areas and equipment. A good practical knowledge of health and safety in swimming pools is essential, as is the ability to respond in an emergency situation.

These posts are exempted under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 and, as such, appointment will be conditional upon receipt of a satisfactory response to a check of criminal records via the Disclosure and Barring Service, before the appointment is confirmed. This will include details of cautions, reprimands or final warnings, as well as convictions. An Enhanced Disclosure will be required.
