Staff Testimonial

I started working at Barracudas in the summer of 2016 as a Group Coordinator in Cobham. I had an absolutely amazing time, it helped me learn how to coordinate with lots of children and how to run fun, exciting sessions. This experience has contributed greatly to my teaching knowledge and has helped my confidence in and out of the classroom grow enormously. The managers were extremely helpful and informative, without being intimidating or condescending. They made the whole experience a lot easier for the new staff and ensured we all had a great time. Thanks for a great summer, Barracudas!

Lifeguarding Roles 2018

A large number of our camps are lucky enough to have swimming pools on site. This means loads of children get to enjoy swimming at least twice a week. All this fun and splashing would not be possible without all the wonderful lifeguards that work with us over the summer season.

With 40 camps this year we need more lifeguards than ever! We offer Monday - Friday seasonal work, so your evenings and weekends are free! We also offer great rates of pay starting from £300 per week! You would also be able to come along to one of our pool training courses, which contribute towards your NPLQ personal development. 

When recruiting lifeguards, not only do we ensure you have the correct qualifications and experience, we also look for the added FUN you’re going to bring to camp! Around the pool, you must be responsible yet approachable, but if and when you need to work with the children outside of the pool area, we need a member of staff who is FUN and energetic around camp. 

Camps across Surrey, Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire, Essex, Kent, Cambridgeshire, Norfolk, Sussex, Bedfordshire and London are all recruiting Lifeguards with a relevant valid NPLQ issued through RLSS, STA or HABC.

If you’re interested, or know someone who might be, make sure you fill in the application form soon!
