Surf Life Saving New Zealand - Taranaki

We are looking for energetic and enthusiastic, qualified lifeguards who enjoy working as part of a team to keep our beaches and their users safe. Surf Life Saving New Zealand operates Regional Lifeguard Services through all 3 of its Regions (Eastern, Central, Southern); locations and coverage varies from beach to beach.

To apply for a Regional Lifeguard Role you must have a current SLSNZ Surf Lifeguard Award (or overseas equivalent) and Level 1 First Aid Certificate (Unit Standards 6400, 6401 & 6402). You will be working either as a team leader or part of a team. We encourage our guards to create a motivated, proactive and enjoyable environment to deliver a safe lifeguarding service across the country. Generally, all Regional Lifeguard Services operate over the peak New Zealand summer holiday period and employee agreements can vary from seasonal full-time to casual part-time lifeguards.  

Due to New Zealand’s current border restrictions, SLSNZ will not be able to accept applicants from overseas. If you are already in New Zealand with the relevant skills/experience and an open working visa, we would encourage you to apply.
