We are delighted to announce we will be running our RLSS Lifeguard Training Course again this summer at The Wave!
Please apply using this link: https://harri.com/surf-operations/job/2102557-the-wave---surf-operations
We are on the lookout for aspiring lifeguards to join our RLSS beach lifeguard course. Those taking part and completing the course will then have a guaranteed seasonal lifeguard role for the 2024 season as well as an opportunity to attend one of our Surf Coaching courses which will be running during the 2024 season. If you would like to apply for a Surf coaching course, please apply through our vacancies page.
We understand a barrier to achieving the required lifeguarding qualifications can often be the cost and the location of the course providers. The Wave wants to be able to make this easier for aspiring lifeguards and are now able to offer these courses in house.
By the end of the 6-day course, you will have achieved your RLSS Beach Lifeguard qualification preparing you to join our team as a Wavemaker for the summer (which could extend further into the year).
As a Wave lifeguard, you will see hundreds of visitors each day, abilities ranging from internationally recognised pro’s to young children who have never surfed before. You will be responsible for:
Ensuring the safety of all our visitors
Championing health and safety
Contributing to the Wave’s proactive safety culture
Being vigilant at all times and able to confidently challenge situations whilst meaning calm
Identifying and addressing any visitors failing to follow the correct rules and safety procedures
Working closely with our surf coaches to provide emergency medical aid and water response when needed
Working with the wider Surf Ops team to ensure the department runs smoothly
Please note, your employment at The Wave will start on 30th May 2024.
In order to be considered you must be able to commit to the following:
Available for the duration of the 6-day course at The Wave
Can meet the timed swim target of 400m in 7.5 minutes
You must be available to work shift work, weekends and the duration of the school holidays
You must be able to provide us with a clear DBS check certificate dated after any offers of employment and prior to commencing the course
Being part of a team that consistently pulls together to ensure that we are able to deliver The Wave vision through the products and experiences we offer
The Training Contract
You will be required to enter into a training agreement, whereby, subject to completing a minimum amount of hours during your employment you will incur no charge for the cost of the course. For individuals who don’t meet these hours, a proportionate charge will be deducted on your final pay. The training agreement will set out the full cost implications.
What happens at the end of the contract?
It may be possible for the participants to continue working for us as part of our casual bank of workers at the end of the fixed-term contract. We also hope that we would see you return as part of The Wave family in subsequent seasons.
Recruiting for diversity is not simply a tick box for The Wave, it is our ethos, the right thing to do and the smartest way for us to do business.
