Talent Pool is Royal Life Saving WA’s youth Engagement, Training and Employment initiative that positions the local community swimming pool as the vehicle to engage and develop first time employment opportunities for Aboriginal youth throughout all corners of Western Australia.

Talent Pool is unique in that we start with the end in mind. That means that we strive to provide real employment outcomes for graduates!
