Interested in running your own lake?


We are looking for people who want to start up a business or work in the open water swimming industry. You do not need any qualifications although a passion for open water swimming might help!

The season primarily runs during the spring, summer and autumn months but there are opportunities for income all year round.

We have the biggest database of regular open water swimmers in the UK. You’ll benefit from NOWCA’s national marketing, but you will also need to be proactive in your local area to generate business for yourself.

NOWCA will supply guidance, training and continuous support but the open water swimming business will be your own to grow and develop.

We are looking for people with the following qualities:

  • You have an outgoing personality that people warm to.
  • You are organised and can organise others.
  • You have a high level of commitment to your staff and swimmers.
  • You don’t mind some early mornings and evenings.
  • You want to create a part time revenue for yourself.
  • You are interested in swimming and swimmers!
  • You are able to manage a group of people who are involved in safety and coaching.

There are currently opportunities in many locations around the UK, although you may already know of a venue in your area that you would like to open or work with, or we can help you find the ideal venue.

Contact us in the first instance on info@nowca.org and we will help turn your dream into reality.
