We are on the look out for Lifeguards with first aid qualifications to join our upbeat and dedicated Activities team.

Permanent and fixed term contracts available for busy summer & winter seasons

Our lifeguards play an invaluable role in ensuring our bathers and guests enjoy a pleasurable and safe visit to our multi-purpose facilities. They are responsible for supervising our five outdoor hot pools and aqua play area year-round, and can include working in our tube park and ice rink in the winter season, for those looking for variety and opportunities to broaden their skillsets.

We are committed to taking all steps to ensure staff and guest wellbeing and the role requires a workplace first aid qualification at minimum. Preference will be given to those with a valid New Zealand lifeguarding qualification, experience with water testing, health and safety, and commitment to providing exceptional customer experiences. Training will be provided to the right candidates who are willing, demonstrate initiative, who work well in a team and under pressure.

We operate 7 days a week and are open most days of the year so our Lifeguards work on a weekly roster including weekends.

Lake Tekapo is a small, growing Alpine village that offers a wide array of outdoor adventure, recreation and activities. As part of the package for permanent employees, a winter ski pass to Roundhill ski field is provided, and many staff discounts can be enjoyed at Tekapo Springs.
