Our Leisure Assistants/Lifeguards are responsible for assisting all visitors to the Leisure facilities on park, undertaking lifeguard duties for the pool, and completing tests and records in line with legislation and safety standards. This role is key to ensuring that we can provide the quality facilities that our guests expect, so they can relax and have fun in a safe well-maintained environment.
