Temporary closure of swimming pool for maintenance and staff training

Please note that the swimming pool will be shut for a period of 2 weeks from Friday 14 April (Good Friday) to Sunday 30 April. This is to allow for staff training and cleaning and maintenance of the pool.

For other Active Scilly opening times, please see the attached timetables for April 2017.

Whilst the pool is closed, Active Scilly’s officers will be undertaking RLSS UK Trainer Assessor qualifications which will enable them to conduct mandatory swimming standards checks for one another. This staff development is essential to ensure that we can offer a safe and consistent service and reduce pool closures in future.

In addition to staff training, the council is also recruiting new staff for our Active Scilly service:

Active Scilly Supervisor
£26,822 - £29,323 per annum
Closing date: Tuesday, 18 April, 2017 - 1pm​

Active Scilly Trainee
£16,123- £20,138 per annum
Closing Date: Tuesday, 25 April, 2017 - 1pm​

These are exciting roles for anyone interested in health, fitness and wellbeing. The successful candidates will join our growing team of casual lifeguards who are vital to maintaining the swimming pool for the community.

We appreciate the patience of all of Active Scilly's service users during this period of recruitment and staff development.
