Swimming Lesson Instructors Needed

We need additional instructors to teach within our instructional program, the Greater Columbus Swim School, this spring and/or summer. If you love kids, are energetic, understand responsibility, know of the importance of punctuality, are willing to learn, and have a positive outlook on life then you are JUST the type of person we're interested in. You need to be Life Guard or WSI certified to start. We will do the rest. We start instructors, based on experience, at no less than $12 to $14 per hour and provide excellent training and direction.

We have 9 locations, teach lessons 6-7 days a week (mornings and/or evenings), will be running Summer Buddy Camps for Nationwide Children's (as part of their Autism Speaks program) and more. We assign you to classes based upon your availability and offer tremendous flexibility in relation to that so that you can work around other jobs, commitments and activities.

If you are interested, please contact Erin Harris, our GCSS head instructor, at erinharris.gcss@gmail.com sending her a basic cover letter and, if you have it, a resume. We will get you started with the training/certification process from there.
