Our Swimming Instructors are the aquatic artistes training the next generation of swimming superstars. Every day, they lead safe, stimulating and always-fun lessons that build confidence and capability in developing young people. As a Swimming Instructor at The Y, you won’t just be a strong swimmer. Because you’ll also be a strong communicator, and a dynamic leader – motivating and educating our guests to build strong, active and safe behaviours in the water. You’ll also assist our Swimming Coordinators in creating lesson plans, interacting with parents (including hosting Parent-Teacher Nights) and taking part in school swimming carnivals.


If you’re an safety-conscious ‘Aqua Expert’ with strong people skills and an infectious energy, you could be our next Swimming Instructor. If so, expect perks like flexible hours and free facility membership, and the support to build valuable people, leadership and life skills – all while you make a difference to your community.

We’ll reward you with perks like flexible hours and free facility membership, and support you to build valuable people, leadership and life skills – all while you make a difference to your community.

Commitment to Safeguarding

At the Y, we are committed to empowering all Children and Young People to feel safe and be safe, at the Y, in their families and in their communities. As such, we embed Safeguarding into everything that we do to make sure Children and Young People are kept at the front of our minds in all our programs and services. We also ensure that all our candidates are appropriately screened to make sure that the right people are in the right roles to keep our children and young people safe.
