In your role, you will be required to undertake observation and scanning techniques, rescue and recovery of guests and respond efficiently and effectively to any incidents (medical or customer related) and report accordingly. Lifeguards will also ensure high levels of cleanliness and tidiness in and around the pool and will assist in pool set up requirements where needed.
Using your knowledge of pool operations, assisting the Centre Care Managers with pool water testing will also be required from time to time to ensure the facility meets all regulations and the pool water remains of the highest quality.
