The team at Aqua Life Swim Academy has over 24 years of experience in developing aquatic skills in children and adults and we are always keen to hear from enthusiastic swimmers who would like to be part of our growing instructor team here in Ottawa.
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. Experience of working with children or in a child oriented business is preferred, although not always 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. When appointed you will receive 20 hours of training in our specialist methodology and processes.
Our instructor role can be full time or part time, depending on your availability. The starting rate of pay ranges from $11.00 – $15.00 per hours based on your education, certifications and experience. If you do not have the required certifications right now, we can help you with that!
Schedules are flexible around weekday mornings, afternoons and or evenings (3 – 8pm) Saturdays or Sundays (8:30am – 2pm). A minimum of 15 hours from these options, including weekend mornings, per week is required. We need you to have your NLS Lifeguarding and Red Cross Swim Instructor or Lifesaving Swim Instructor to work with us. But if you impress us at interview we’ll help you renew or achieve either!
