Surf Life Saving NZ is Aotearoa’s leading beach & coastal safety, drowning prevention and rescue authority.

We’re truly unique, delivering proactive surf lifeguarding & essential emergency rescue services, beach & coastal safety, a range of public education beach safety programmes, member education, training & development as well as a highly respected sport. We do this all as a charity.

SLSNZ is the national association that represents 74 surf lifesaving clubs with 18,000+ members, including more than 4,500 volunteer Surf Lifeguards. Our lifeguards patrol more than 80 locations in summer, as well as provide emergency call-out rescue services throughout Aotearoa - saving hundreds of lives each year and ensuring thousands return home safe after a day at the beach.

Even though our Surf Lifeguards save hundreds of people each year and there have been no fatal drownings between the flags, New Zealand’s fatal drowning rate is still too high. We are committed to changing this. Our vision is no-one drowns on our beaches. It’s what drives us.

We have a fantastic team at Surf Life Saving NZ and we take great pride in what we do. If you are keen to make a difference, you can view our current job vacancies (including volunteer roles) below:
