The University of Wolverhampton’s Sports Department is seeking to recruit lifeguards to support the operation of the swimming pool facility at its Walsall Campus.


You must be fully qualified as a lifeguard with a current RLSS (UK) National Pool Lifeguard Qualification or STA Pool Lifeguard Qualification. You will also need to have a good understanding of swimming pool safety.


The role also includes gym/fitness suite cover and reception duties. Therefore, a level 2 fitness instructor qualification would be an advantage, together with good customer care skills, the ability to handle customer enquiries and a commitment to work as part of a team.


Shift working patterns are in operation, therefore, you will need to have a flexible approach to meet the needs of the business.


For further information or an informal discussion about the role, please contact Rob Sargent on 01902 518900 or email  

The University of Wolverhampton values a diverse workforce and welcomes applications from all sections of the community.
