Around 20 swimming instructors will be employed by the City of Canterbury Bankstown in the next month, to keep up with the summer rush at Council’s five leisure and aquatic centres.
Max Parker Leisure & Aquatic Centre swim instructor, Sabrina Tran, said nothing is better than spending summer in the pool. “It’s definitely one of the best jobs,” the 18-year-old said.
“I get to work in the pool all day and have an important impact on these children’s lives.
“A great part of my job is developing kids’ swimming skills and seeing them improve and achieve their goals.
“It’s critical that all children learn how to stay safe while swimming, whether it be in a pool, river or at the beach, to avoid drowning or other serious injuries.”
Ms Tran, said, since she signed on as an instructor in July, she’s also enjoyed assisting older students develop their swim strokes.
“It’s great to see some of the older swimmers get stronger and faster, and gain more confidence from what I’m teaching them.”
Interested instructors must love working with children and in the water; have relevant industry qualifications, such as a current Austswim or Swim Australia Teacher and Water Safety certificate; and be qualified in CPR and First Aid.
Successful applicants must also have a valid Working with Children Check identity number and demonstrated experience in the effective instruction of Swim School classes.
Applications close Wednesday 21 December. For more information, or to apply, contact Council’s Team Leader Swim School on 9707 9296.
