I wouldn’t recommend

I wouldn’t recommend working here, I don’t think that they actually care about the health and well-being of their employees at all. Avoid this employer

Not as great as it seems

Enjoyed working with some staff but others made life unbearable. Always favourites even if work really hard. Money was good though but some staffing structured need review

Both good and bad. Best way to progress is through lifeguarding. Pay and benefits aren’t amazing but it’s also not a difficult job. Management can be hit and miss

If you are part of the friendship groups you will get the work. If not … then you won’t . So you wonder why the jobs were advertised as there are no hours.

Fellow staff in other departments were great

No additional staff to support.Only one staff member across 5 sites to triage, do health questionnaires & inductions. Lack of support was shocking. Yet the company was happy for me to cover my manager for no extra pay.

Plenty of opportunities to progress

Great company to work for if you want to knuckle down and progress upwards. A lot of support from most of the senior management. A fair salary in London as you move upwards, although a lot of responsibility for not the best paid industry.

Great company to work for and fair rates of pay

Great team members and fair rates of pay. Plenty of cover shifts available across the city centre. The swim school can be quite stressful and busy at times. But all in all a good place to progress.

Good working hours

Management is mostly helpful, but overall a positive working environment. Always easy to pick up shifts on a 0 hour contract and good amount of lifeguards means not always on pool.
