The YMCA of Northern Colorado is hiring a Head Lifeguard for the Arapahoe Ridge HOA pool to serve as the friendly hawk that keeps our members safe and our aquatics team on the ball.

You have the common sense and problem-solving skills to help our aquatics leadership to manage staffing and overall pool operations at this site. You understand what it means to be a leader, and you are ready for the responsibility of supervising fellow guards.

You handle complaints and criticism with grace and charm, and you know when to communicate with the aquatic leadership team about problems and concerns. Basically, you like people and you want to help them.  
  •  You are an awesome Lifeguard. It's OK, you can brag. You are good. Real good. You not only have all your certifications and years on the stand, but you possibly even have some management or leadership experience.  
  • You love the idea of being part of an organization that makes a difference in your community. You love that your work saves lives, and that feeling makes you smile each and every day you come to work.
