TO ADDRESS LIFEGUARD SHORTAGE
(Waukesha, WI) – Waukesha County Parks staff are seeking applicants to fill the several open positions for Lifeguards at the swimming beaches at Fox Brook Park in Brookfield and Menomonee Park in Menomonee Falls.
“Lifeguarding is a great summer job,” said County Executive Paul Farrow. “Not only is it important work for our community, the role also provides valuable work experiences that will follow employees throughout their lives.”
Waukesha County is seeking at least 30 candidates to fill vacant Lifeguard positions. Positions are open for candidates 16 years and older from early June through mid-August. The hours per week include 20-40 hours and the pay range is $10.55-$14.00/ hour depending on experience.
As an incentive, interested and qualified applicants that do not have Lifeguard experience will receive training for their Red Cross Lifeguard and Waterfront Skills certification.
All qualified applicants, including those interested in getting certified, are encouraged to apply under the “Lifeguard” listing at www.waukeshacounty.gov/jobs. For additional information about lifeguarding, contact Kerrie Hughes, Park Program Specialist, at (262) 896-8074.
