Our fantastic club relies on the support of our volunteers and we are extremely grateful for all the time they give. We are always happy to hear from anyone who may be able to spare some time to support us both in the pool and out.

Volunteering at Colchester Phoenix is a great opportunity for those working towards the Duke of Edinburgh awards or considering a career in medicine, nursing or teaching. We are also very pleased to hear from older volunteers who bring a wealth of life experiences with them.

Are you an able Swimmer?

Do you enjoy working with children?

Do you have the empathy, flexibility and patience to help children with additional needs develop water safety skills and improve their swimming? You will be working under the direction of a qualified swimming teacher and will also have the opportunity to attend an in house training course specially designed to help you feel more confident in your role as a phoenix in pool volunteer.

We need water based assistants from 4pm-6pm on Saturday at Colchester Leisure World.

If you are interested, whatever your abilities, please drop me an email on
