A couple of weeks ago during the school Easter holidays Beth did a weeks course at the local University pool. She has been a life guard for a couple of years, but wanted to take it one step further and work in a public pool. The course was pretty intensive and physically very demanding, she was there from 8am to 5pm for a week and then 9am until 1pm on the Saturday for the exam. She passed with flying colours and now has the National Pool Lifeguard Qualification, this will allow her to work in any public pool.
Carl has worked for the Herts University Pool for years and they have been a very good employer. Very keen on ensuring the health and safety of their employees and the pool users. All staff are trained every month to keep their skills up AND the pay is above average!! Of course Beth was very keen to follow in her brothers footsteps.
Last week she sent them her CV including her latest qualification, First Aid at work. They said they would get back to her.
Yesterday she had a call asking if she could go into staff training last night and two evenings next week. She agreed to that. So last night she joined in the training and afterwards she was told that she wold be invited to interview sometime in May, which was brilliant news. They said that they would pay her for all three training sessions, but best of all they gave her a full uniform!!! Staff handbook and employees information!!
So I wonder how the interview will go????
Well done Beth, you have cracked it, you can start saving for your car straight away!!!!
For me I will have the problem of trying to make sure the right uniform goes to the right person as Carl still occasionally helps out in swimming galas and competitions!!
