Careers with SLSQ

Our commitment is to save lives and we are continually working towards our vision of zero preventable deaths in Queensland waters.

Our organisation encompasses several diverse arms – lifesaving services, community education, membership services, surf sports, fundraising, and commercial training – but they all support one overarching purpose: to save lives.

Surf Life Saving Queensland (SLSQ) aims to set the benchmark in lifesaving service provision, rescue practices, emergency care and training and education as we strive to make our coastline safe for everyone who uses it. A commitment to continuous improvement across all areas of our operation ensures we are highly regarded both in Australia and around the world.

The cornerstone of any successful non-for profit organisation is its people. Our people are the heart of who we are and it is through the support of volunteers, staff, members and supporters that allows SLSQ as an organisation to continually move forward.
