Why You Should be a Swimming Instructor at Goldfish Swim School

If you love swimming, it may seem natural for you to become a swimming instructor at Goldfish Swim School – but you don't even have to be a swimmer to do so!

Here are some fin-tastic reasons to work with us, at any age:

Passion for swimming

Maybe you grew up spending summers on the beach – or perhaps you won some swimming titles for your high school swim team. You love to swim, so why not bring that zest to Goldfish Swim School as an instructor? They say when you do something you love, it's not like work. That's certainly true here, where you'll have a GOLDEN experience while on the clock.

And who knows…you may even turn your passion into something more, just like Dana did!

Pursuing early childhood education or teaching

If you're attending (or planning on attending) college to obtain a teaching degree or focusing on early childhood education, working at Goldfish Swim School is a great way to get your feet wet about working with kids – and learn how swimming even helps kids in school!

Plus, our instructors use integrity, compassion and trust to teach children how to swim using the Science of SwimPlay (which reinforces how children build upon cognitive growth through guided play in a safe environment), which will help in the classroom!

You're a stay-at-home parent, or want a second job

Now that your kids are in school, you have time during the day. You want to work…but you want to be done with work by the time the kids get out of school. And you want to feel fulfilled at work.

Or maybe you have a full-time job and just want a few extra hours of fun and meaningful work a week. With our flexibility – and purpose on providing extraordinary results for our young swimmers – Goldfish Swim School is the perfect place for you!

Enjoy teaching kids a lifelong skill

You like to help. You like being around kids. You like making a difference in the world. Why not make all of that your job? Even if you're not planning on a teaching career, becoming an instructor at Goldfish Swim School allows you to help teach kids how to swim – a lifelong, lifesaving skill – and how to be safer in and around the water. (That's why we Float it Forward, and how you can make an impact.)

Flexibility for students

When you're still in school, it can be difficult to find a job willing to work with your sometimes-limited availability and changing schedule every semester. But at Goldfish Swim School, we understand! With our swimming lessons slated throughout the entire day – morning, afternoon, evening and weekends – we have plenty of opportunity for you to work around school.

You want to have FUN at work

YOU: Like to smile. Laugh often. Bust out in song once in a while…or a lot. Wear flip flops whenever possible. Love working with kids. Give high-fives. Enjoys making a splash in life. Provides WOW! customer service.

US: Reward hard work. Recognize you. Give out bonuses. Offer paid training. Have neat perks. A cool atmosphere. Celebrates constantly.

For a fun time at work, just add water…with us at Goldfish Swim School.

Retired…teachers, athletes, or anyone!

Are you technically retired (or about to be), but you still want to work? We would be thrilled to have you and your wisdom, experience and life skills as part of our team! Being in our 90-degree pool teaching kids how to swim and be safer in and around the water is a meaningful – and enjoyable – job path to take on the next part of your journey.

(And did you know we're the luxury brand of swimming? Kind of what you deserve after your lifelong hard work!)
