Greenwich Leisure LTD are currently recruiting for a Lifeguard (Recreation Assistant) at the London Aquatics Centre.

Building on their continued growth, our client is now the UK's largest leisure social enterprise - and set for even greater success. If you have the talent and ambition to join GLL as a Lifeguard, there's never been a more exciting time to progress with a sector leader. This is more than a Lifeguard job - it's a career. Professional development is just the start. To ensure you stay at the top of your game, GLL provide training with practical and theory elements too.

Pool safety can't be underestimated - and neither can the responsibility that comes with this vital lifeguarding role. Our Client's scale means that they 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. Our Client looks 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 customers have the best possible experience - in terms of enjoyment, safety and hygiene.

Better leisure centres are run by GLL, a charitable social enterprise, working with local authorities to run leisure centres, swimming pools, libraries and world-class sporting venues such as the Copper Box Arena and London Aquatics Centre in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. As a not-for-profit organisation, they're different. Passionate about seeing GLL's communities thrive, they invest back into their facilities, projects and people. So, join GLL as a Lifeguard and enjoy career progression and great benefits including flexible hours and locations, a uniform and discounted membership at all 145 leisure centres.

If you have the passion and skills for this role, then apply now.

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