The Town of Golden is looking for some enthusiastic, amazing people to join our team at the Golden Pool as Lifeguards. Earn high school credits through the training, get a job that pays a competitive wage, work outside, teach people water survival skills and be proud to be part of a team that works hard and has lots of fun.

Lifeguarding can open numerous career building opportunities for those seeking to become health and wellness professionals. The skills developed through lifeguard training can help you build opportunities in many fields.

Importantly, residents can take training right here at home! This is great news for people – especially youth – who aren’t sure what they want to do in terms of a career path.

“Lifeguarding is an amazing first step to any career,” says Recreation Coordinator Kim Bryan. “I think that the skills that you learn through lifeguarding – through the certification process and holding a job as a lifeguard – carry on to many different career paths. And, the fact that we can offer it in town is amazing because it means that it is more accessible to a variety of people and our current team gets to build a bit of a relationship with the NL candidates. Talk about a great way to get your foot in the door!”

If you enjoy swimming and helping people, get your lifeguard tickets.

“The Golden Swimming Pool is such a fun place to work, honestly,” says Bryan. “And no matter what happens down the road - maybe your Plan A falls through for a little while or you need to make some extra money while you go to school - your tickets can get you a job at basically any pool across Canada. Pools are always looking for lifeguards.”

Working at the Golden Swimming Pool is fun and exciting!

Certification courses will be offered in Golden, stay tuned to our website and Facebook pages for updates on course times. For detailed job descriptions and to apply, check out the Apply For tab on the homepage of our website or click HERE. Email for more information.
