Ask Uncommon Caribbean: How Can I Get a Lifeguard Job on Magens Bay, St. Thomas?

Could there be a better office than this?

With all its popularity, jaw-dropping beauty, and some pretty wild co-workers, you might think it near-impossible to land a job lifeguarding at Magens Bay in St. Thomas. I mean, who wouldn’t want to work here?

While walking the beach snapping pics like this one of the iconic dark green lifeguard stands, I imagined the line of applicants for jobs here being several miles longer than the beach itself.

Actually, we always need part-time lifeguards, especially during the season.

So says Hubert Brumant, General Manager of the Magens Bay Authority, the semi-autonomous body that manages the entire 68-acre park.

Peak season runs from November to May, a time when the beach is always more crowded. Lifeguards here, who work in two shifts (either 8am–5pm, or 9am–6pm), earn $12.50 per-hour, in addition, of course, to all this marvelous sun, sand, and sea.

To qualify, lifeguards must be open water certified – CPR, AED, First Aid – and provide references. The Magens Bay Authority provides training on the special nuances of working here.

To apply, give Hubert a call at Tel: 340-777-6300, or shoot him an email at magensbay@viaccess.net.
