SAN DIEGO – Summer is in full swing and the City of San Diego’s Parks and Recreation Department is currently hiring seasonal and year-round benefited pool guards for its 15 swimming pool facilities. This is the perfect opportunity for anyone who is passionate about safety and fun and would like to jump start a career of public service with the city.

After hosting a successful hiring fair last month, the department hosted a second hiring fair on Saturday, June 24. Before attending the hiring fair, interested candidates must have applied online for a Pool Guard I or Pool Guard II position.

To encourage more applicants for Pool Guard positions, candidates who meet the age requirements for the Pool Guard I position do not need to be certified prior to applying.
