Fancy spending your summer on the beach as a Lifeguard?

Want to be a lifeguard, but haven’t completed your lifeguard qualification?

We will pay for your lifeguard training!

This is a fantastic opportunity that will give you lots of skills and a qualification that will turn you into a respected lifeguard! In return, you’ll work on the beach at Rutland Water and help to keep our visitors safe.

Set in 4200 acres of open countryside, Rutland Water Park is the central rural attraction in England's smallest county of Rutland and offers activities for all the family.

Hundreds of people visit to enjoy time on our inland beach at Sykes Lane. As a Lifeguard at Rutland Water, you’ll make sure our visitors have a great time and remain safe whilst on the beach. We need you to have a vigilant approach and respond with urgency and efficiency to any swimmers and visitors in distress.

Check out our videos to see where you could be spending your summer!


It’s an advantage if you hold the National Pool Lifeguard Qualification (NPLQ) and have previous experience in a similar setting, however, if you haven’t achieved the NPLQ, you can still apply - you must be a competent swimmer, enjoy being around water and be committed to undertaking the National Pool Lifeguard Qualification (NPLQ).

In this crucial role, you’ll be the first point of contact with customers so you’ll also need strong communication and social skills.

This is a seasonal opportunity (June – September), and you will be employed on a flexible, zero hours contract.

Spend your summer, helping the public, in a beautiful beach setting – apply today!

Anglian Water is also looking for flexible, casual employees across their other Water Parks.

If you are offered a job with us, you will be subject to the relevant/standard employment checks, including: your right to work in the UK, reference, driving licence and identity check. Depending on your role, you may also be subject to a criminal record check and a drug and alcohol test.
