Lifeguard hire

Lifeguard recruitment

Sourcing, vetting, recruiting and insuring your own pool or beach lifeguards is time consuming, costly and carries compliance risk.

Whether this is lifeguard hire for a network of hotels, leisure centres, holiday parks, a one-off swim event, or to provide a safe environment at a children’s pool party.

We carry a £5,000,000 Public Liability insurance, and £5,000,000 Employers Liability Insurance – to comply with government guidelines for HSE and to provide you with complete peace of mind.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes they are. All of our lifeguard’s skills are regularly reviewed and refreshed to ensure you receive the best service possible.

No way! Our cancellation policy is as follows:

  • Up to 7 days in advance = 90% refunded
  • Up to 3 days in advance = 50% refunded
  • 24 hours of less = NO REFUND. This is due to our lifeguards being reserved for the event, which would have prevented them working elsewhere. 

Yes! We are pleased to announce that we have recently recruited a team of beach lifeguards for rent to add to our thriving team of pool lifeguards.

We have both male and female lifeguards working for Loan A Lifeguard (LAL) to suit your needs and to provide you with a service you’re most comfortable with. Please ensure you make your request as soon as possible.

Our lifeguard’s main priority is to be alert and ensure the safety of all swimmers, however if it is safe to do so, upon request the lifeguard can introduce some games to the party. Please let us know in advance.

No! As only 20 people are swimming, only 1 lifeguard will be needed. Once the number of people in the pool exceeds 30, an additional lifeguard will be required. This will be documented in your booking.

We have a large team of lifeguards available nationwide. If a lifeguard does need to travel to get to an event, we account for this in the cost, so your party is never out of reach.
