Do you love people? Does helping others put a smile on your face? Would you love a career where you could change peoples’ lives? 


Whether you’re a Beach Lover, Return to Work Parent, Student, Educator, First Jobber, Retiree, or transitioning careers; if you bring energy and passion, there are so many possibilities for you at the Y. 


Right now, the Y NSW is looking for aspiring Learn-to-Swim Instructors to join our friendly Y teams at various aquatic facilities across NSW and the ACT. 


We’ll train you up and support you to get qualified so you can make a difference to your community and your career.


Being able to swim is one of the most important skills a person can have. Our Learn-to-Swim Instructors change and save people’s lives by equipping them with the ability to swim confidently – it is a truly rewarding role.


As well as nurturing and encouraging future swim stars, our Instructors can plan a lesson well, follow that plan, all while keeping their eyes on up to five students at a time. 


Our Instructors are splashtastic communicators – they know how to calm an anxious student and reassure a worried parent. You’ll hear a lot of laughter in their classes.


While our Instructors are teaching their students to be confident swimmers, they’re also looking out for their team members and ensuring hygiene is a top priority – keeping our students safe is a team effort.


Many of our Instructors have other commitments like study or family or are recently retired but enjoy making a difference in people’s lives. The Y NSW encourages and supports this by offering flexible working hours. 


 What we need from you:

  • Passion for customer service and excellent communication skills
  • A friendly and approachable manner
  • A love for working in a team environment
  • An enthusiasm for teaching
  • The desire to learn and grow


What the Y can offer you:

  • Flexible working hours
  • A friendly and fun team environment
  • A detailed induction with ongoing support and training
  • Y Family benefits including free gym membership, uniform, access to salary packaging and more
  • Parental leave benefits for permanent employees with over one years’ service
  • Out of School Hours Care discounts
  • The opportunity for career progression with multiple development pathways available across the Y 


We believe in building a diverse, inclusive workforce that reflects the communities we serve. We encourage Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, people of any age, ability, race, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation and family or caring responsibilities to apply.
