Many of our team initially join us with the view that this is “just a job until I get a real job once my Uni degree is completed”. However, after working in the industry they realise there are some great career opportunities on offer. At Blue Dolphin if you show the initiative you have the opportunity to train in other areas to continually learn new skills. These skills will not only benefit you at work, but will also give you skills for life.
From here, the prospects are endless. A number of our Swim teachers have elected to stay at Blue Dolphin long after their university degree has been completed. Consequently, they have turned their ‘job’ into a fulfilling career.
We are open 7 days a week with 4 weeks closure per calendar year (as well as public holidays). Preferably, we would like you to work a minimum of 3 shifts a week as we believe this amount of teaching exposure has proven it’ll make you to be the best teacher you can be. We will communicate with you in relation to your roster. We recognize the importance of work, life, balance.
We want our Swim teachers to be the best in the business. We require a minimum of 30 hours in water training, working with a variety of mentor teachers. An additional 10 hours of theory training is done out of the water. This is when we spend one on one time with you, encouraging the opportunity for questions and to cement the knowledge you are gaining in the water.
You are also required to obtain a DCSI Screening, along with a current CPR (the Customer Service position requires Provide First Aid) and a Government recognised swimming qualification (AUSTSWIM, Active Training, SAT)
