We are going to be advertising for lifeguards in a few weeks time. We’ll be looking for a Pool Manager, Senior Lifeguards and Lifeguards. Our season starts in late May and runs to early/mid September.
We will pay at least the 21-24 aged National Living Wage (more if you’re 25 or over) rate of £7.38/hour (plus holiday pay). So if you’re under 21, you’ll still get this rate. The Seniors and Manager will get more.
We understand that you might be at school or university or looking for short term employment…we will take all variables into account. You will need to have a current NLPQ (or equivalent) and be DBS checked.
Interviews currently planned for Saturday March 10th for manager and senior lifeguards; 13/14th March (5-7pm) for other lifeguards.
Watch this page and other outlets (for example our Facebook page) for the advert in a few weeks time. Or message us with your email if you want an application pack when it comes out.
The Directors of SPCIC are all volunteers, so you may need to exercise patience and empathy during this recruitment process!

Not just new, but our first caretaker. Thanks to the fundraising efforts of local volunteers, FoSP and Brixham Town Council we are employing a paid part-time caretaker. After interviewing a few applicants the job went to one of our existing volunteers, Charlie Gorton. Well done Charlie.
As well as looking after the pool and its surrounds, Charlie will be working with volunteer cleaners, maintenance, painters and others throughout the year.
Since Brixham Town Council took over responsibility for Shoalstone Pool, we have relied entirely on volunteers to manage the site and carry out day to day maintenance. Our volunteers are still at the heart of everything we do, but we have got to the stage where we need a paid caretaker to oversee the site – and to help us take it from strength to strength.
It’s not just the pool itself that we are now responsible for: Torbay Council have handed over responsibility for the green, the car park and the toilet block as part of the lease. This brings with it increased opportunities, but also increased running costs – and a massively increased workload for our maintenance team.
We’re looking for someone local who is as passionate about preserving this pool for future generations as we are. Someone who has the skills and experience to be able to tackle the myriad of jobs that need doing around the site – who isn’t afraid to use initiative or to get their hands dirty. Someone who has great communication skills, and can work with everyone from the volunteer directors to our excellent lifeguard team, from paid contractors to our indispensable maintenance volunteers.
If you think this could be you then please get in touch! We look forward to hearing from you.

Are you local to Brixham? Would you like to help your lido go from strength to strength? Well now’s your chance! We are on the look out for two new volunteer directors to join our team…
Being a director for Shoalstone Pool is a very important role. The board meets once a month, and discusses everything to do with running the pool including day to day operations, special events, grant applications, fundraising and marketing. We are looking for someone who can think strategically, but also has the time and the energy to be hands on with the variety of tasks that need completing.
Specifically, we are looking to fill two key gaps in our team: we would love to find a maintenance director and a personnel director who could bring skills and experience from their own lives to support us in these areas.
The maintenance director would ideally be someone with an interest and aptitude in fixing things (not necessarily pool related), and would be heading up an enthusiastic team of volunteers. There are a range of maintenance jobs that need doing at the pool, from cleaning to painting to general repairs. Where necessary we do pay to pull in professionals (to carry out electrical work for example), but wherever possible we need to conserve funds by using our volunteer maintenance team.
For the personnel director, we are looking for someone who has excellent people skills, and ideally experience in managing and leading teams. The role would involve overseeing the management of our volunteers as well as recruiting new ones, and also overseeing the paid lifeguard team in season alongside the pool manager.
Both directors would also play a key part in managing the future of Shoalstone Pool, helping us to ensure that it stays at the centre of our community and can be enjoyed by many more generations to come.
If you think you might be interested in either of these roles, and have a few hours a week to spare to help support your local lido, then please do get in touch!
