Personality wise, you will be required to be friendly and welcoming at all times and have a calming attitude about you to reassure guests that they and their children are safe. You must be responsible, mature and be able to think on your feet, working well under pressure.
To work as a lifeguard you are responsible for every swimmer at the resort, whether they are experienced or not, and whether they are children or adults. Your job is to ensure safety at the pools or at the resort’s private beach. This includes making the swimming area safe, by getting rid of dangerous objects, encouraging safe play in the water and watching out for weaker swimmers.
