Jobseekers Can Explore New A New Career in Aquatics


(Alexandria, VA)With nearly half of the workforce set to retire in the next decade and less than nine percent of new workforce entrants joining the skilled trades, the demand for new talent has never been greater. The Pool and Hot Tub Alliance, a non-profit trade association for the pool, hot tub and spa industry, is asking today’s jobseekers to jump in with both feet and explore the career opportunities available to them in the vast field of aquatics. Jobseekers will find roles ranging from manufacturing and construction to retail, service and maintenance – all with great earning potential.   

As the demand for pools and hot tubs continues to grow in a post-pandemic world, so too is the opportunity for skilled professionals to take advantage of this rapid growth. According to Zippia, the pool installer field alone is projected to grow more than 14 percent through the end of the decade and produce more than 68,000 new job opportunities. The collective industry has a massive impact on the economy, contributing billions of dollars and hundreds of thousands of jobs.   

“The only barrier limiting the growth of our industry is a lack of new talent joining our ranks; otherwise, the sky’s the limit,” said PHTA President and CEO Sabeena Hickman. “PHTA is raising awareness of all the great career opportunities available within the industry. We want to remind jobseekers that a rewarding career is within reach, and especially for those without a college degree.”  

Spanning several large industry sectors, including building, manufacturing, service, retail and swim instruction, and career paths for both skilled trade and professional positions, the pool and hot tub industry offers significant growth potential. Plus, on-the-job training and no degree requirements for many positions remove barriers to entry, making the industry a welcome option for those looking for either a full-time career or just a summer job.
