Hilsea Lido Pool for the People Trust (HLPPT) is looking for qualified lifeguards to work at Hilsea Lido throughout the 2016 season. This is a fantastic opportunity to work at an iconic sporting venue in the heart of the Portsmouth community and is ideally suited to individuals with a mature approach to their responsibilities and a desire to work with members of the public in a fun, social setting. The challenges of this role cannot be overlooked, the pool measures 67m in length and goes to a depth of 4.5m and is therefore a lot bigger than your average pool. In addition Hilsea Lido is a cold water open air pool and so the role and responsibilities of a lifeguard here are very different to those at a smaller, heated indoor pool. As well as holding an up to date RLSS lifeguard qualification, we would expect all applicants to be excellent team players and be prepared to work with visitors of all ages to encourage them to develop their swimming skills and enjoy the benefits of jumping and diving & relaxing for a day at Hilsea Lido. Lifeguards at Hilsea Lido are paid £8 per hour and there is the opportunity for flexible working hours to suit the demands of the business. Weekend, evening and early morning are all part of the rostered hours & there are often opportunities for additional hours for those looking to earn extra money. If you would like to apply for the position of seasonal lifeguard at Hilsea Lido or would like to know more, please contact info@hilsea-lido.org.uk.
