Our Core Values We Provide to our Staff: Autonomy Mastery Purpose

Dear Lifeguard Applicants of Happy Swimmers,

The summer season is approaching, and I am currently looking to hire highly competent, personable private lifeguards with strong safety backgrounds in each city center and suburbs we serve. If you’ve seen our ads, we serve your area, or simply check out our website for a list of regions we’re in.

Filling out the application online should take about 20 minutes. You’ll want to scan copies of your relevant certification cards, and have past employer info and references handy. Here’s more info on our company: Happy Swimmers has been the cream of the crop since 1991. We hire the best and pay the best of any swim company: $120 AUD for up to 3 hours, $40 AUD/hr thereafter.

We intend to have a small, responsive staff, contracting mostly weekend hours to your schedule, take as many or few client gigs as you wish. Being your own boss (an independent contractor in tax terms), you can deduct all business expenses you have as a result of lifeguarding with us (gas, mileage, a portion of your car insurance, car payments, car maintenance, etc.).  Check with your tax adviser. You must also have an ABN (get one easy if you don’t have it already).

We look forward to your application and best wishes for the Summer and beyond,

 

Jenn Tyler
Owner/Director

Base pay to our lifeguards is at the following rate:

$40 per hour, 3-hour minimum- the highest pay in the industry!  The more top notch you are out there, the more bonuses and work we can get you. High pay, purpose, and you’re your own boss–welcome to Happy Swimmers!

EDUCATION


Certifications

For Swim Instructors: You must provide a scanned or photo copy of current, non expired CPR certification to be considered for a position. First Aid cert is a plus but not required. CPR Certification must be from an authorized "hands on" class. Online only classes are scams and not acceptable. American Health Care Academy $19.95 online certs are just one of the common worthless scams, sorry.

Attach your relevant certs as image files like .jpg etc. PDF's do not come through on our end. Idea: take a picture of your cert cards with your cell phone and attach.

FORMER EMPLOYERS

List up to your last four employers with attention noted to swimming employment. List most recent first. If no former employers, enter "NA" in the fields.
