Who Are We?

The British Swim School has been teaching children and adults for over 30 years and is always keen to hear from enthusiastic swimmers who would like to be part of our growing instructor team in New Jersey. Out motto is ” Survival of The Littlest” – help us do just that! We are operating out of over 150 pools across 15 states – and are now rapidly expanding into New Jersey!

Who Would You Teach?

Although we teach swimming to all ages and abilities, the majority of our students are pre-school and elementary-aged children so you really have to enjoy working with this young age group and be able to put their parents at ease too. Experience of working with children or in a child oriented business is preferred, although not necessary. If you can still demonstrate the desired attitude that would make you a good fit for our team we’d be happy to hear from you.

Requirements

You don’t need to be a swim instructor or even a lifeguard yet – the position includes 40 paid hours of specialist training in our highly-developed proprietary methodology.
We need you to have a CPR, First Aid and Lifeguarding certification to teach with us – BUT if you do not have these certifications yet and you impress us at interview, we’ll help you get them. We will even reimburse you for what it cost to get them – after you have been with us for 6 months.
We are looking for exceptional people – and for this we pay above average compensation.

Working Hours

This position can be full time or part time – depending on your availability. A shift is 5 hours and can be any day of the week. You can get between one and 5 shifts per week. Once you are assigned a shift, your hours will remain the same week after week. (e.g. Sundays 8am – 1pm)
