Dive into a great career opportunity
Posted on 17 Nov, 2023
If hanging out by the pool throughout the hot Central Australian summer is your idea of a good time, then you might be in luck.
The Alice Springs Aquatic and Leisure Centre (ASALC) will be running a Bronze Medallion training course in December, aiming at recruiting more lifeguards for the holiday period.
ASALC is currently on the lookout for people of all ages and backgrounds to join their lifeguard team ahead of a busy summer period, giving people the opportunity to earn an income while being poolside. In an effort to train those interested in becoming a lifeguard, Alice Springs Town Council will facilitate a Royal lifesaving Bronze Medallion Course on 2 December. This is the minimum standard for a qualified lifesaver.
“We are always looking to add more enthusiastic members to our team and we’re really excited to offer this training,” ASALC Manager Petina Franklin said.
“Becoming a lifeguard really is not as daunting as it sounds. It is a fantastic job for people of all ages whether you are a highly trained athlete with loads of experience, or a school-leaver looking for a summer job. We have such a broad cross-section of lifeguards on our team and hope to bolster that, so join in and give it a crack.”
Normally $180, Council will fully subsidise the Bronze Medallion course for any trainee lifeguards willing to work two shifts per week through the holiday period.
To sign up for the Bronze Medallion course or for more information about becoming a lifeguard, contact the Aquatic and Leisure Centre on 8950 4360 or email email@example.com today.
