Swim Safety is the UK’s leading event water safety management company within the events industry, providing and managing water safety teams across a range of mass participation & corporate sporting events for clients such as:
- Tough Mudder;
- IRONMAN; and
- Sport Relief
Over the course of the Summer season we will typically operate at almost 100 events in the UK as well as a handful of events abroad. But it’s not just events, our Safety Boat division also provides water safety services for PR shoots/stunts, construction sites and on TV & film sets.
Swim Safety is looking for a bright & enthusiastic individual to join our 2020 internship programme. You’ll get an insight into the workings of a niche company providing water safety management & consultancy services to a large array of clients.
The programme we offer is an opportunity for an intern to learn and develop across all aspects of our business, broadly these areas cover Events Management, Marketing and Operations. Interns will gain experience working across mass participation sporting events, PR shoots, TV and Film sets and alongside marine engineering and construction-based jobs.
An average week will consist a combination of office-based work, site visits and/or meetings and two or three days on-site at events. Being happy to work most weekends over the season is essential.
You’ll need to be highly motivated, organised and able to work under your own initiative. Adaptability is key as you’ll be providing valuable support to our existing event managers, both administratively but also operationally on-site at events. An interest or experience in outdoor or water sport activities/lifeguarding is a distinct advantage, as is an understanding of triathlon, open water swimming and/or obstacle racing.
