Thank you for your interest in being part of our team of volunteers at Moseley Road Baths. Our remarkable pool has been in continuous operation since the early 1900s. We’re very proud of MRB and delighted to share it with anyone who feels the same.
As of saturday 7th April, we are now operating! We have a fantastic team of volunteers in place but are looking for a few more to ensure we have good coverage over the week across all roles.
The volunteer roles we are looking for are as follows – please click on the links to view job descriptions.
– Volunteer Lifeguards – we’re running a women only lifeguard training course over 5-6 days in autumn as follows: 22nd-23rd Sept, 29th-30th Sept, and 6th-7th Oct. The first five of these days will be full working days i.e. 8 til 4 or 9 til 5, times TBC. There is a fitness test for the course at 6pm on Thursday 6th Setpember – please note the change of date. Other courses are also available. Read our Lifeguard Training FAQs
We will offer you the training you need for the role, travel expenses and management support. We will also ask you to sign a volunteer agreement setting out our commitments to you and what we hope that you will do in return.
Training for most roles can be carried out once your application is accepted at a suitable time. For those wanting to be lifeguards or swimming teachers but not yet qualified, training can be arranged but do expect this to take some weeks to book and complete – the next courses are running in July and August and we particularly welcome applications from women to help us guarantee female lifeguards for our women only sessions. Maintenance volunteers will be contacted a bit later on. Arrangements for training will be confirmed to successful volunteer candidates.
If you are interested in one or more of these roles, please download and complete this application form and an equalities monitoring form, and send them to email@example.com as soon as possible, or contact us for more information.
Once we have received your application form we will send you further information and arrange to call you for a further chat. Please note that the application form asks for two references. This is increasingly seen as good practice for volunteering positions such as these.
We look forward to receiving your application form and to working with you to keep Moseley Road Baths open to the public!
