Head Lifeguard at Colliers Hill

Company: YMCA of Northern Colorado
Location: Lafayette
Posted on: May 3, 2021

Job Description:

The YMCA of Northern Colorado is hiring Head Lifeguards for the Colliers Hill community pool. You will serve as the friendly hawk that keeps swimmers and families safe and our TPC aquatics team on the ball. Head Lifeguards serve up to 40 hours per week, for summer with the opportunity to continue at a YMCA branch after the outdoor pool season.

Are you ready to be our friendly hawk? You might be a good candidate if:

You have the common sense and problem-solving skills to help our aquatics leadership to manage staffing and overall pool operations at this site. You understand what it means to be a leader, and you are ready for the responsibility of supervising fellow guards.

  • You can communicate to staff, members and program participants in a professional, positive tone. Always. You handle complaints and criticism with grace and charm, and you know when to communicate with the aquatic leadership team about problems and concerns. Basically, you like people and you want to help them.
  • You are an awesome Lifeguard. It's OK, you can brag. You are good. Real good. You not only have all your certifications and years on the stand, but you possibly even have some management or leadership experience.
  • You love the idea of being part of an organization that makes a difference in your community. You love that your work saves lives, and that feeling makes you smile each and every day you come to work.


  • Current ARC/YMCA Lifeguard, First Aid, CPR-PR Certifications, and Oxygen Administration Certifications
  • Minimum 21 years of age
  • Blood Borne Pathogens within 30 days of being hired
  • New Staff Orientation within 30 days of being hired

Salary Range: $16.50-17.60/hour depending on experience and availability. We offer a +10% differential for bilingual staff (Spanish and English). And there are great benefits, too. Part time staff working more than 15 hours each week are eligible for free individual and discounted family membership as well as 25%-50% off most YMCA of Northern Colorado program fees for themselves and qualifying family members (including personal training, swim lessons, after school programs, day camp programs and more) on a space available basis. Additional benefits include earned sick time and contributions of 10% of your salary to the YMCA Retirement Fund for eligible staff.
