Our roles

Our roles here include Lifeguards, Water Sports Instructors, Café staff, Naturalists and Park Assistants.

For many of these roles, you’ll primarily be working during our busiest periods – especially at weekends and the school holidays. Some roles are seasonal (April to September) and even permanent positions give you real flexibility over your hours.

For some, like Rangers, you’ll be working on-site all year long.

Our watersports roles

Lauren is a Water sports instructor here at Anglian water and has been working at our parks for 7 years. Here’s what she had to say about her experience:


“The best thing about working at the parks at Anglian Water is being outside. It’s not your average office job. I don’t think I could work in an office now that I’ve worked here!

The people I work here with are some of my closest friends, but also with it being such a large company it means there’s so many different opportunities even if you’re working at Anglian Water for a summer job, there’s potential to move into a different career elsewhere in the business.

[NGB instructor qualification is required]

We also do staff development, so if you don’t know how to windsurf or sail we can teach you, and get you the qualifications you need.”

What we look for

For all of these roles, you’ll need to be extremely customer focused – you’re someone who can give customers a warm welcome and help them to make the most of their time in our water parks.

You won’t always need specific experience to join us here (although if you’ve worked in another visitor attraction, that would definitely be helpful).

For our more specialist roles, such as Water Sports Instructors, relevant qualifications are essential. However, for others – like Lifeguards – we can give you the training you need as long as you have a real aptitude for the role.

Our locations

We provide fantastic water parks for people and wildlife, receiving over 2 million visitors a year and covering over 4,428 hectares of parkland, woodland, nature reserves and water.


You need to be at least 16 years old, you can apply when you are 15, but will not be able to start working until after your 16th birthday.

We often provide training to achieve a specialist lifeguard qualification to candidates that have not already achieved the qualification, on the basis that you work during our busiest times in the Summer.

Being part of the Water Parks Team gives you discounts across Anglian water run activities and catering establishments.

If successful with your application, you will be paid on the 15th of each for the hours you have worked the previous month.

Due to the seasonal nature at our Water Parks, the majority of our opportunities are provided on a zero hour contract. However, occasionally we recruit for permanent staff who work at the parks all year round. All opportunities will be advertised here, on our careers page.

Definitely, as one of our important seasonal employees at our Water Parks, you could commit to hours that are suitable to you - our busiest times are at the weekends and school holidays.

The Aqua Park is run by an external company to Anglian Water, therefore they recruit their own staff. You would not be working on the Aqua Park as part of your Anglian Water lifeguard duties.
