The Waimakariri District Council operates three Aquatic Facilities in the North Canterbury region, providing a high-level customer experience to a wide range of users. We are a respectful and progressive team delivering value for our customers.

To assist with this, the Council is currently seeking applications for Lifeguards based at the Oxford Community Aquatic Centre.
