'Tate has worked at Liquid Leisure for the past three summers, she has been a
total asset to our team of lifeguards, not only is she observant, attentive, caring
and full of initiative she is a fantastic team player.
Tate is always full of great ideas, and copes very well under pressure, this is
why she was left to supervise the aqua park with my full trust.
Tate has an amazing way with children, she was in charge of running parties,
looking after lost children and taking care of those with additional needs
(special needs co-ordinator). She has a natural way with children whatever
their needs are and has a way to make each child feel special and give them an
experience that they will not forget!
Her enthusiasm and maturity in all her work especially the childcare side,
never fails to amaze me and we will be very sad to lose her! But she has our
full support in her career move and there will always be a job for Tate here at
Liquid Leisure. Despite what Tate gets thrown at her, she will knuckle down and
overcome every challenge and every hurdle.
Children would always come off the aqua park with smiles and full of praise for
how Tate is ‘the best lifeguard ever!’ and she has numerous 5* reviews on trip
Tate is very punctual and her attendance to shifts is second to none, a very
reliable member of staff and will always exceed what is expected of her!'
