Sedona AZ (March 22, 2019) – The Sedona Parks and Recreation Department needs lifeguards.
The department has delayed the pool opening date to May 1. This date is dependent on staffing resources. Despite various recruiting efforts, the city has not received enough lifeguard applications to staff the pool for spring operations.
Believe it or not, lifeguarding is no longer just a summer job for youth. The parks and recreation department is targeting the older demographics hoping to recruit adults/seniors and retirees that are active and have flexible schedules that will allow them to work weekdays. Benefits of the position include supplemental income, staying active and free entrance to swim and enjoy the amenities. If you have flexible time, enjoy working with others and being outdoors, you may want to consider applying.
The Parks and Recreation Department is accepting applications for lifeguards and offering lifeguard certification courses. Candidates can apply for the job before taking the course and receiving their certification. Visit sedonaaz.gov/jobs for details.
If staffing does not become available, the community pool may not open until Memorial Day when high school and college students are available.
The Sedona Community Pool is located at 570 Posse Ground Rd. adjacent to West Sedona School.
