UNION COUNTY, NJ – Students age 16 and older looking for summer jobs can spent their days at the pool by becoming certified to be lifeguard by contacting the Department of Parks and Recreation Department.

Lifeguard positions are available at two swimming pools, the Walter Ulrich Memorial Pool in Rahway and the John Russell Wheeler Pool in Linden. Applicants can begin the certification process at age 15, but they must be 16 years of age or older by completion of their training.  The starting pay is $11.00 per hour, and the 2016 season begins on June 25 and ends on September 5.

 “Lifeguarding provides a unique opportunity to add a position to your resume or college application that demonstrates a high degree of reliability and responsibility,” said Freeholder Chairman Bruce H. Bergen. “Our pools are conveniently located and we offer both part time and full time schedules. I encourage you to call now and find out how to apply.”

To find out about certification and physical requirements, email the Union County Department of Parks and Recreation at Warinanco@ucnj.org or call 908-298-7849 Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
