Want to work at the pool in Qualicum Beach?

Ravensong Aquatic Centre looking for people to fill various positions

If you are good in the water, the Ravensong Aquatic Centre in Qualicum Beach may be looking for you.

“We’re constantly in a recruiting phase, there’s an open posting on the RDN website,” said Jerry Michael, aquatic programmer with the Regional District of Nanaimo, which runs Ravensong.

He said in March staffing levels got too low with a combination of illness and injury hitting them during a low ebb in the usual rise and fall of their total staff numbers and they didn’t have a backup plan.

“Right now we’re around 20, in March we were closer to 15, including casuals we could use more like 25,” Michael said.

He said this time of year things usually get better with student’s finishing classes and available to work and the type of activities the facility offers shifts as more children come in during the day.

He also pointed out that while they have a lot of young people, Ravensong actually has more older staff than other aquatic centres he’s worked at, and they consider hiring staff of any age, just depending on their qualifications.
