Permanent, Full-time Lifeguard

Timaru District Council Caroline Bay, Timaru, Oamaru

Job Description

The district

Timaru District is a thriving and innovative community. It is the central hub for the South Island, servicing a large agricultural heartland, with a growing economy that provides the import and export gateway for primary sectors. We boast a Top 10 most loved beach in New Zealand and have access to mountains, rivers and lakes, making Timaru an ideal destination for recreational, sporting and cultural pursuits.

Let's not forget about that seven minute commute to work!

The organisation

The Timaru District Council aims to enable democratic local decision-making and action by, and on behalf of communities, to promote the social, economic, environmental, and cultural well-being of its communities in the present and for the future. With around 400 employees, there are a diverse range of roles, from community-facing to support and technical specialists.

The role

If you're an enthusiastic and motivated individual, CBay has an awesome opportunity for you! We have three permanent full-time lifeguard positions available.

As our newest Lifeguard on the block, you will take pride in providing amazing customer service while ensuring a safe and fantastic aquatic experience for our community.

You'll have the ability to stay calm in busy and pressured situations and have a keen eye for spotting potential hazards and preventing incidents. We need an outstanding communicator with a strong team approach.

Previous Lifeguard experience/training and a current first aid certificate are preferred but not essential. You may be a confident swimmer looking to upskill - full training will be provided to the successful applicant. All applicants must be able to complete a practical assessment, including swimming 200m within six minutes, retrieving an object from the deepest part (3.5m) of the pool, and treading water for five minutes.

CBay operates seven days a week, so reliability and commitment to working early, late and weekend shifts is crucial. This is a permanent, full-time position offering 40 hours per week.

What are you waiting for? If you're ready to dive in and earn some valuable skills in the aquatic and recreation industry, let us know.
