At the University of Nottingham, we are proud to be the Times and Sunday Times Sports University of the year 2021, with a history of success and sporting pedigree, including Olympic medallists and international-standard athletes among our students and alumni.

If you want to part of our ambitious future, providing health, wellbeing, and exercise opportunities for our university community, we’d love you to join our team of Sports Assistants and Lifeguards based at our sector leading facility at the David Ross Sports Village on our Nottingham campus.

In this role, we will support you to develop your skills and gain industry recognised qualifications to further your career in Sport. In fact, in your first 6 months with us, you will commit to achieving the National Pool Lifeguard Qualification (NPLQ) and we will help you to do so, to ensure that you are equipped to fulfil all aspects of the role. In addition, our team of experts in our Professional Development Department will work with you to find the course, funding or programme you need to help you fulfil your potential and take the opportunities you need to succeed.

What you will need to bring is commitment, flexibility, and dedication. You must be able to work independently as well as in a team and have a passion for customer care and a desire to deliver excellent service. You will support with general facility operations, event set up and delivery, as well as providing safe supervision of customers and lifeguard cover of our 25-meter indoor swimming pool.

In return, we offer a competitive salary and benefits package, a generous holiday allowance and pension scheme and access to leisure and childcare facilities across our campuses.

We believe that sport is essential for the wellbeing of our staff and students and should be accessible to all.
