Main character is speaking with two school friends, one of whom happens to be Swedish and spent the summer in Sweden/Britain (his established history is ambiguous enough that he could be with family in either country, and I never established whether he's ethnic Swedish in Britain or an actual Swedish citizen). Swedish friend mentions he had a summer job. Due to Swedish friend's particular skills, a job as a lifeguard (at a community pool, for example) would be ideal.
Do Sweden and/or Britain have the same concept of "summer jobs" as American students do? Would lifeguarding be a possible? Are community pools common enough in urban/suburban areas to make this a possibility? What age would a lifeguard working during the summer have to be?
EDIT: Thanks for the quick response. ^^ Looks like I'll either place him in Britain or just eliminate the line of dialogue altogether.
