Lifeguard – Wakefield
If you’re looking for an incredibly rewarding way to help us develop children’s water confidence in the school holidays, we have an amazing role for you!
Kings Camps are a registered charity that run sports and activity day camps for children that deliver our mission – getting children active, having fun and learning together.
We know market-leading programmes don’t deliver themselves – it’s our people who create amazing holiday experiences for children – and we’re hiring energetic and passionate Lifeguards and Swimming Teachers to help deliver our mission and increase children’s water confidence in the school holidays.
About the Role
As part of the Kings Camps team, Lifeguards must work alongside swimming teachers to ensure we deliver a safe and engaging swimming session for children in the school holidays. You’ll work with our coaching teams to provide high energy and inclusive sessions, ensuring every child is engaged and making progress, regardless of their ability.
You will ensure that the welfare of children is paramount at all times, ensuring all individuals follow the Kings Camps’ Swimming Policy.
From poolside, a typical day could include working with 3 to 8 different groups of mixed ability children aged between 5 and 17, with a maximum of up to 16 children in the pool. Each session typically (depending on age) lasts between 30 – 45 minutes.
Child safety is our number one priority, so you’ll need to support with in depth risk assessments, monitoring water conditions, overseeing the safe use of equipment and promptly recording any incidents, ensuring throughout that the welfare of children is paramount at all times.
Working with Kings Camps during the holidays offers you more than just a job, the benefits listed below will last throughout your career:
