Maple Ridge Parks, Recreation & Culture is currently hiring an Aquatics Programmer, Lifeguards/Instructors and Slide Attendants! With the re-opening of the newly renovated aquatics facility in the Maple Ridge Leisure Centre upcoming in early 2020, we are looking to expand with individuals who are ready to take on a community-focused opportunity.

Joining the Aquatics team means you will be joining a tight-knit group of aquatic professionals who care deeply about their fellow coworkers as well as the work they do. Between competitive pay, flexible schedules (for lifeguards and slide attendants) and satisfying work, this is an opportunity you won’t want to miss. Apply to join our team today!

Become the Aquatics Programmer

The new Aquatics Programmer will be leading a large group of staff in the delivery of exceptional swim programs both at the Leisure Centre and seasonally at the outdoor pool. At times you’ll be on deck mentoring and supporting our staff team, in the water teaching and leading in-service training or in the filter room, conducting a pool reading. The Aquatic Programmer position is an administrative role, however in aquatics it’s not unusual to require ‘all hands on deck,” and the successful applicant must be a versatile team player.

This position is especially exciting as the successful candidate will have a key leadership role in recruitment and training of new lifeguard/instructors and the facilitation of new operating procedures in the re-opening of the newly renovated Leisure Centre.  

Become a Lifeguard/Instructor

Being a lifeguard is a rewarding and important job that makes a fantastic career as well as an incredible opportunity for those looking to build their resume. The skills you will learn both in preparation for and on the job transfer to many industries and will impress future employers.

Become a Slide Attendant

Looking for a flexible, community-focused opportunity or to build up your resume? Slide Attendants have a customer-facing job and the important role of keeping citizens safe while they have fun and recreate. If you enjoy working with people and have a passion for community safety and recreation, this may be the position for you!
