Baby & Toddler Swimming Instructors / 3yrs to 6yrs Instructors PLUS possible Admin position
Part Time or Full time
If you are as PASSIONATE about teaching babies, toddlers or kiddy winks how to swim as we are, we’d love to hear from you! At Duck and Dive we specialise in teaching zero to fives how to swim and believe we have the best program out there.
This is your chance to become part of an amazing small team, our clients certainly love us to bits, most of whom are either repeat or referred customers which gives us a nice fuzzy feeling as we try so hard to please with absolutely every part of our business!
As part of our exciting expansion, we are looking for extraordinary individuals who are (or want to be) amazing teachers. The rewarding positions available involve teaching specialised techniques in a varied and fun packed program with more opportunities to apply your skills in other areas of the business.
Currently we are looking for:
Baby and Toddler teachers
Learn to swim teachers specialising in 3 years to school age (we also offer a pathway to baby swim teachers for those interested)
Admin person combined with the above which could lead to a PT or FT position.
To get your wings with us, we offer a comprehensive training package which leads in turn to higher than average rates of pay and exciting career opportunities in this growing school.
You love babies, toddlers and little kids
You love grownups (babies can’t swim on their own just yet, so you have to relate to the carer!)
You are passionate about teaching but still have an excellent customer focus
You ooze confidence and are a clear communicator
You are patient and get excited with your results
You are at home in the water
You are flexible and prepared to help with other areas of the business
You are capable of presenting carefully tailored lesson plans and accepting feedback
You are reliable and extremely punctual
You can ideally work weekdays and part of the weekend (every teacher including the bosses have to work part of the weekend, no more than a half day [unless of course you want more], to share the load)
You are mobile, preferably a car owner unless local and prepared to attend at least 2 of our 3 locations (see website for details)
Great to haves:
AUSTSWIM certificate (Teacher of Swimming and Water Safety) or Swim Australia certificate (Teacher course)
AUSTSWIM certificate (Teacher of Infant & Preschool Aquatics) or Swim Australia certificate (Teacher of Babies and Toddlers Course)

The above are necessary before we can begin the training program but we can wait for you to get qualified if you are the right person.
Absolutely must haves:
You have permanent residency or are an Australian citizen
You are looking for a long term commitment
We’re also throwing this out to someone who is interested in a career change and is prepared to train to become a swimming instructor, so if you have no experience but are interested we’d still love to talk!
There are many swim lesson providers for babies and toddlers all over the city, offering different programs. Many other programs are based on water familiarity and building confidence through song and rhyme. At the Duck and Dive baby swim school we go beyond these basic stages, as we recognise the importance of survival skills and aim to nurture a lifelong love of the water…
