As we spring into Spring, and look towards summer, we can’t help but get excited for the opening of outdoor pools. These pools openings means we’re looking for lifeguards to join our team. We share our top 5 reasons to lifeguard with LIV North this summer:
Nothing tells an employer more about your ability to be responsible than seeing Lifeguard on your resume. Lifeguarding comes with a higher level of responsibility than most jobs, as the primary purpose of the job is to ensure the safety of the facility. Being a guard tells employers that you are able to ensure a completely safe environment by paying attention to detail in every part of a facility.
As a lifeguard, the swimmers (or sunbathers) who come into the pool area are relying on you to ensure their safety. The vast majority of lifeguarding is “preventative lifeguarding” – stopping situations before they develop – and being a leader is all about being proactive and taking initiative.
As a guard with LIV North, you are an essential part of a large team, working together to create the most positive experiences for the swimmers we serve. Our team consists of lifeguards, supervisors, service and maintenance technicians, schedulers, and managers who all communicate and work together to ensure the safe and smooth operations of any given facility. Working as a team is a great way to make connections and build positive relationships with the people you work with
4. Flexible Schedules
Being part of a team also allows for flexible schedules. Whether you’re wanting to make the most of your availability this summer, or just want to pick up a shift or two around your summer school schedule, being a Lifeguard at LIV North allows for the flexibility of working with your scheduler to fix work around your schedule. LIV North serves pools all across the GTA and in London, ON, which also means that we are always looking to staff you at a pool that is as close to home as possible.
5. Remaining Healthy and Active
Being a lifeguard outside is a great way to soak up rays and promote healthy active living, while getting paid at the same time. Lifeguarding is not just about the safety of the facility, but providing customer service and making connections with the swimmers. It’s the perfect opportunity to get up from the sofa, desk, or lecture halls and encourage others to continue to do the same!
