The partnership will look to showcase career opportunities in lifeguarding to help combat the shortage of lifeguards in some areas of the UK

The Royal Life Saving Society UK (RLSS UK) has confirmed it is extending its partnership with Leisure Opportunities, the jobs and training magazine and website for industry professionals.

RLSS UK and Leisure Opportunities – which is part of the Leisure Media portfolio – started working together in 2018 with a view to bridging employment gaps in the leisure sector.

As an RLSS UK strategic media partner, Leisure Opportunities will continue to highlight RLSS UK's work and campaigns and showcase career opportunities in lifeguarding to help combat the shortage of lifeguards in some areas of the UK.

The strengthened partnership will also help to attract a more diverse audience to lifeguarding following the launch of RLSS UK’s #Bealifesaver campaign earlier this year.

Liz Terry, CEO of Leisure Media said: "Swimming and watersports are some of the most popular leisure time activities and RLSS-qualified professionals work tirelessly to ensure people are safe in and around the water.

"We’re committed to supporting this work and also to harnessing our powerful recruitment networks to enable people with lifeguard qualifications to find great jobs and for recruiters to find the staff they need to run safe and successful operations."

Jo Talbot, director of commercial operations at RLSS UK, added: "We’re thrilled to continue our work with Leisure Opportunities, who have bought into our mission and values as the leading provider of aquatic safety training and qualifications and the governing body for the sport of lifesaving.

"Strengthening our partnership will help us to meet the industry’s need for more lifeguards, while ensuring they receive the highest standards of training."
