City hosts lifeguard hiring event May 13

May 6, 2022

The City of Georgetown is facing a lifeguard shortage that may lead to operational changes at the public swimming pools. The Parks and Recreation Department currently has 20 lifeguards on staff, about one-third of the more than 60 needed to fully operate pools this summer.

The City will be hosting a hiring event from 4-6 p.m. May 13 at the Georgetown Recreation Center, 1003 N. Austin Ave. The event will feature free food, drinks, and prizes, as well as on-site application and hiring opportunities. Lifeguard pay ranges from $10.50-$16.50 an hour depending on position and experience. Lifeguard certification will be provided.

The department is also hiring swim instructors, camp counselors, childcare and recreation aides, and an adventure camp specialist.

Summer jobs like these are great opportunities for teenagers, college students, and anyone looking for a fun way to earn extra money.
