This section contains information about the current opportunities for doing paid work or volunteering roles at the Petersfield Open Air Swimming Pool.


no vacancies


Volunteers play a very important role in helping to keep the pool viable.  We currently have volunteers who generously give their time to the pool providing free  IT support, legal advice, gardening care,  plant room support and day to day site maintenance.   

We also have a few groups that we call on occasionally which are:

Maintenance Volunteers

We have a pool of (normally semi- skilled or skilled) volunteers who join in for “maintenance days” – in the spring prior to opening and in the autumn after closing for the winter.

Reception / Café Volunteers

We have a few “on-call” reception volunteers who are able to step in to help when we have staff shortages (usually in May).   

We are currently also seeking the following: 

Marketing and Events

Someone who is willing to work with the Operations team at the pool to assist or lead marketing and or events planning.  If you are interested in this but would only be able to do this on a paid basis, then please let us know also as it may be possible to find some budget to help in this area. Most of the work related to marketing is during the main open season – although ideally, events planning takes place prior to the main open season

If you are interested in any of the roles below please contact and put “Volunteer” in the header.


POASP has between 5 and 8 trustees on the board at any one time. Trustees meet once per month but also take on “responsibility areas” which demand some additional time. Desirable skills which we would warmly welcome include: HR, Events Organisation, Small Business Management (e.g. Café / Shop management).

Potential trustees need to have some time to “do” as contributing well as a POASP Trustee is not just providing “strategic wisdom”. We have very few paid staff and the pool would not be able to operate without dedicated trustees and volunteers.

Prospective trustees should have a passion for the pool and ideally are users of the pool as this enables trustees to be more informed and provide better management support. To find out more about being a trustee, please contact the pool via and put Trustee in the subject header.
