Job Summary:

As a Lifeguard/Recreation Host/Hostess at Disney’s Vero Beach Resort, safety, lifesaving and first-responder duties are paramount, but you will also play games with little ones, help with towel and equipment rentals, and so much more.
You are also the person our Guests turn to when they want to try their hand at water sports, do arts and crafts, play rainy-day games or just chill by the ocean with a cool drink in hand.
The key to success in this job is having an authentically friendly demeanor, an unshakably positive attitude and the sincere desire to help and protect others.

Responsibilities:

One day you might focus on lifeguard duties around the pool, the next might be rainy day activities for kids of all ages, and the next might be tending to Guests who prefer the beach. But no matter what the activity, our Lifeguards/Recreation Hosts/Hostesses are always helpful and genuinely friendly.

Every day as a Lifeguard/Recreation Host/Hostess is different! On any given day, you might:
  • Use your lifeguard and first responder know-how to keep our Guests safe in the pool
  • Answer Guest questions about the resort and the Vero Beach area
  • Keep the pool deck tidy, help with towel rentals, and assist Guests however possible
  • While you would lifeguard at the pool only, you would distribute towels and help set-up/break-down lounge chairs, rent cabanas and body boards on our beautiful beach
  • Daily set up and break down of beach rental equipment including repetitive lifting, stacking and pushing
  • Physically challenging work and prolonged exposure to all kinds of weather and humidity
  • Lead supervised children’s activities like arts-and-crafts, storytelling, races and contests
  • Interact with Guests on a daily basis – since this is a Disney Vacation Club property, you will get to know “regular” Guests, and they will get to know you

Basic Qualifications:

  • You must be at least 18 years of age
  • Hold a valid US driver’s license
  • Have (or be willing and able to pass) US Lifeguard and First Responder certifications, which includes:
    • Pass a swim test: swim 200 yards without resting, tread water without using your hands for two minutes, and retrieve a 10-pound brick from a depth of 5 feet.
    • Pass a vision screening (corrected or uncorrected) with at least 20/25 vision
  • Focus to observe all sections of an assigned zone or area of responsibility
  • Heavy lifting and working with chemicals
  • Physical ability to work outdoors, in all types of weather
  • Full Availability for any shift a minimum of (3) days per week, including nights, weekends and holidays

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Had previous Lifeguarding experience
  • Full Availability for any shift (7) days per week, including nights, weekends and holidays
