Better Leisure Centres are now recruiting strong swimmers with a friendly, professional and hard-working outlook to be Lifeguards (Recreation Assistants) to help with our women-only swim sessions at our five leisure centres in Camden, North West London. This role for 15 hours per week on a fixed term basis until March 2020. Many of our centres are in culturally diverse locations and we run female-only swim sessions to accommodate the needs of the communities in the area.

Pool safety can’t be underestimated – and neither can the responsibility that comes with this vital lifeguarding role. Our scale means we can also offer scope to progress, and variety like nowhere else – from regular pool rotations, supervising and cleaning the pool area, to setting up equipment and delivering a first-class customer service when dealing with queries. Do your job well, and there shouldn’t ever be an emergency. But if the unexpected should happen, you’ll be equipped with the skills to potentially save a life.

If you’re calm under pressure, highly responsible and a natural with people from all walks of life, this is your chance to develop as a Lifeguard. We look for integrity, a can-do attitude and a real focus on customer service. Passion and personality will also stand you in good stead, combined with knowledge of health and safety legislation and a National Pool Lifeguard Qualification. A great team player, you’ll make sure our customers have the best possible experience – in terms of enjoyment, safety and hygiene.

In return, we offer a range of benefits that you’d expect from the UK’s largest leisure provider:

  • Pension schemes
  • Ride to work scheme
  • Discounted membership at our leisure centres
  • The opportunity to join the GLL Society and have a say in how we’re run plus associated social events
  • Career pathways
  • Ongoing training and development to help you to be the best

All pay rates are subject to skills, experience, qualifications and location.

To be shortlisted for the role, internal applicants will need to demonstrate their commitment to GLL by becoming a Society member where eligible.
