As part of its commitment to providing high quality water safety education in Greater Shepparton, Council is set to host a Swimming Instructor Recruitment Day to make the job application process easier, quicker, and more accessible.

The recruitment day will take place at Aquamoves Lakeside Shepparton on Thursday 26 October 2023, offering an inclusive and relaxed environment that will allow people to apply for Swimming Instructor roles through informal conversations with Council staff.

Council’s Centre Manager Aquamoves, Steven Wilson, said Swimming Instructors play a pivotal role in instilling water safety skills and confidence in individuals of all ages.

“We believe in creating a community where every person can enjoy aquatic activities safely, and our recruitment day will be an opportunity for passionate individuals to join us in this mission,” he said.

“Joining our Swimming Instructor team isn't just about a job; it's about empowering individuals with essential life skills and contributing to a safer community. We firmly believe in teaching today for a safer tomorrow.”

Whether you're an experienced Swimming Instructor, recently qualified, transitioning to retirement, seeking an after school job or looking for a career change, Council welcomes you to explore this opportunity.

Megan Birks, a dedicated long serving member of the Aquamoves Swimming Instructor team, shared her enthusiasm for the industry.

"Working as a Swimming Instructor is incredibly rewarding and when I come to work, I can’t wait to get in the pool and start teaching,” she said.

“The skills that you need? A great smile, be open to something new, believe in yourself and enjoy yourself through the journey of becoming one of the valuable Swimming Instructors at Aquamoves.”

Council looks forward to the recruitment initiative bringing a fresh wave of passionate individuals to its dedicated Swimming Instructor team, and invites everyone interested to register for the sessions via their website.

As an added incentive, candidates not yet qualified will have the opportunity to have their Swimming Instructor qualification paid for in full by Council.
