Council to manage pools in-house

Tuesday, 30 October, 2018 

Strathbogie Shire Council is pleased to announce it will be adopting an in-house model to managing the Avenel, Nagambie and Violet Town Pools this 2018-19 season.

The Euroa Pool has been contracted to GL & BA Brooks, who have successfully managed the facility for the many seasons.

Strathbogie Shire Mayor Amanda McClaren said Council went through a tender submission process for the remaining three pools and instead decided to adopt an in-house model this season as a trial.

“In light of some recent community feedback, Council thought it would be a good opportunity to deliver this service with directly employed staff rather than contractors,” Cr McClaren said.

“This will provide the opportunity to experience and assess this management option when considering the draft Community Pools Strategy in February.”

Council is currently seeking Expressions of Interest for a Pool Coordinator who will be an employee of Council responsible for overseeing the operation of the three pools and is also looking for lifeguards to work at Avenel, Nagambie and Violet Town.

To support local employment, Council is running a two-day pool lifeguard training course on Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th November for up to 16 people, who will then have the opportunity to apply for a lifeguard position this season.

Participants must have current first aid certificate and must be 16 or turning 16 by the end of 2018 due to the physical requirements of the course.

To register your interest, please email Council at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. , expressing your interest in participating in the Lifeguard Training, as well as providing your name, age, address, phone number and a copy of your first aid certificate.

Council is also calling on community groups and other interested parties to register their interest in running the pool kiosks for the 2018-19 season.

For more information about any of these opportunities or about the lifeguard training course, visit the “Jobs” button on Council’s website or contact Council Offices on 1800 065 993.

All applications close Wednesday, 14 November, 2018.
