Job Description

Being a Lifeguard at Center Parcs is great because

You’ll develop highly sought after skills, like self-confidence, teamwork, and communication, as well as the ability to save lives
It’s an incredibly rewarding job and leaves you feeling really positive at the end of a shift
You get to meet people from all walks of life and make new lifelong friends
We offer a great work / life balance, with family-friendly shift opportunities, as well as brilliant leisure perks which the whole family will enjoy


As a qualified Lifeguard working in a large team, you’ll be allocated general cleaning and testing duties to make sure the pool is safe for guests. Once we open, or at the start of your shift, you’ll be on rotation with other Lifeguards – monitoring various activities and attractions on a 30-minute cycle, as well as supervising guest leisure activities such as Aqua Jetting. At each of the lifeguard stations you’ll be expected to maintain guest safety, whilst ensuring they are happy in their environment.


If you haven’t got your Lifeguard qualification yet, don’t worry. If you’re a strong swimmer and show an aptitude for the job, you can join our Lifeguard training scheme. Our training course means that you can be a Lifeguard at any age of life. We take people straight from college, as well as those considering a career change. It really is an amazing opportunity.

All candidates must successfully pass a swim test in order to progress to the interview stage.


We have both full and part-time contracts available with a variety of shift patterns available. Flexibility will be required as our village is open 365 days of the year, so you will need to be able to work some weekends and public / bank holidays on a rota basis.


Center Parcs is a fantastic place to work and the benefits are as impressive as they are unique. Here are just a few:

Colleague Bonus Scheme
Pension Scheme with Life Assurance
Colleague Recognition and Reward Scheme – offering a choice of Center Parcs and High Street vouchers
Free use of our leisure facilities
Discounted Center Parcs breaks
20% discount in our restaurant and retail outlets
Access to Perks at Work Portal – offering a wide range of retail and leisure discounts
An Employee Assistance Program – providing support on financial, health and legal matters
Excellent opportunities for career development and progression with the opportunity to gain externally recognised qualifications
An employment referral scheme, where you can receive up to £500 for successfully recommending a new employee (conditions apply)

If this sounds like your ideal job, then we’d love to see your application.
