Surf Life Saving Tasmania (SLST) is Tasmania’s peak Water safety and Lifesaving organisation. Our movement is a part of the history, fabric and future of this country. It represents the lifestyle, values and beliefs of the Australian culture. It protects life, it saves life, it promotes life. We create a safe environment in and around our waterways, through patrols on, in and around aquatic environments and through community education and training programs.
We achieve this by working with our members, communities, educational institutions, governments, and other organisations in the provision of best practice education, training, surveillance and rescue and risk management services. Each year to grow our capacity to be able to reach the community and meet their diverse needs, SLST recruits Community Lifeguards and Education Instructors.
Exciting opportunity to join the SLST team this Summer and make a difference in educating the Tasmanian community about water safety! Applications are now open for Community Lifeguards and Education Instructors to be part of the team to supervise and deliver programs including Beach to Bush and Ready.Set.Rescue (an ASC Sporting Schools initiative)…and more!
Opportunities exist for energetic and passionate individuals to supervise and educate Tasmanians of all ages, backgrounds and abilities. You will supervise and instruct participants in across a range of community and school based education programs, ensuring an understanding of key messages are delivered in an enthusiastic, professional and safe manner.
Programs are delivered across a variety of Tasmania’s aquatic environments - beaches, pools, classrooms and inland waterways - with some flexibility for Lifeguards and Instructors to work at preferred venues, shift times and days to fit in with other commitments (work, study, club duties, family, etc). Shifts are available predominantly during school hours, typically from the end of October (Beach to Bush commences on 21st) through December to late March/ start of April. Weekend and regional work is also available, meaning a willingness to travel is a bonus. Lifeguards are encouraged to work in different areas across the state to further develop their lifeguarding experience.
For more information on any of these roles, contact Leanne Johannesen via email or call (03) 6222 6555 (Option #1).
Applications close 5pm, Thursday 24th August 2017. Successful applicants will be required to attend an interview and induction, prior to allocation of a first shift.
