Ryan – Lifeguard

"I got into the leisure industry by completing work experience at the Leisure Centre. I enjoyed it that much I asked for a job! I completed my lifeguard qualification and started my career as a lifeguard. The opportunity became available to go onto to complete a Swim Teacher Course, I now teach my own lessons. The diversity of the work I do ensures that no day is the same. I am focused on helping the people in the community, this makes me feel good and that I’ve done a good job."

Bea – Lifeguard

“I have enjoyed working as a Leisure Attendant for the past 5 years. It is a role that requires teamwork, and I have formed great friendships. It is also a very sociable and friendly place to work. I originally started working as a leisure attendant, but I have now been given the opportunity to gain a swimming instructor qualification funded by the leisure centre. I am also training to become a receptionist. It is a great place to work and it has helped me gain experience in the work place, whilst enjoying working at the same time.”

Katie – Lifeguard

"I have been a lifeguard at the leisure centre since 2013. I love being a lifeguard because I get to socialise with lots of different members within the community, with who I have helped build their fitness and wellbeing throughout the years and now have a strong friendship with some of them. Another reason why I love being a lifeguard is working in a team helping each other solve different problems that we might face in the day. Since becoming a lifeguard I have also become a swim teacher, which I find very rewarding seeing children building their strength and confidence."

Tamara – Lifeguard

"I had my first experience of the leisure industry when I was 14 years old. I completed my work experience at my local leisure facility and after just one week I knew it was something I enjoyed and wanted to do more of. I completed my bronze medallion by 15 and then went on to volunteering with swimming lessons at my swimming team. Swimming has been a massive part of my life, I spent a huge amount of time growing in leisure centres swimming for an amateur team. At 16 I got offered a place on an NPLQ course and I jumped at the chance to do it. Shortly after that, I got my first ever job as a lifeguard. This started my time working in the world of leisure. The job gave me the confidence to talk to people, and the skills I needed to work in any environment. I have worked in lots of different leisure settings and on different types of water in my 8 years of being a lifeguard, but all the fundamental skills always come back to the ones I first learnt as a lifeguard. I have also completed my swimming teacher course and teach my own swimming lessons. Most recently I just attended a course to be a NPLQ lifeguard trainer and assessor. Now it’s my turn to help others find their careers as lifeguards or their future in the world of leisure. Being a lifeguard is a huge part of my life and it shaped me to be the person I am today. I truly wouldn’t be where I am today without it."
