The quest for lifeguards is on for the City of Prince Rupert, a challenge for many communities these days, with reports of labour shortages requiring some nifty navigation of pool scheduling across the province.
Towards the local need, the City of Prince Rupert has posted a Job Opportunity for the Earl May Aquatic Centre, seeking the services of a Lifeguard Instructor I to II, a full time position which pays a rate from $26.87 to $32.18 per hour.
The background notes o the opportunity looks as follows:
The Lifeguard Instructor I, under the direction of the Aquatic Leaders, works independently, assumes responsibility and takes initiative to complete duties related to pool filtration, chemistry, lifeguarding, instructing, administration and special events. The incumbent maintains a positive, professional, guest-centric approach.
Should the candidates not meet the criteria for lifeguard instructor II, they will start as a lifeguard instructor I and will be provided the opportunity to complete the Lifesaving Society Instructor Certification and Aqua Fitness Instructor Certification (CALA) within one year of their hire date.
The full scope of what the City's Recreation Department is looking for can be reviewed below:
