Description: Canoe Instructors
Canoe Instructor: share your passion for paddling with our young guests!
Opportunities in Southern France and Spain for the 2012 season - applications are open!
Our Canoe Instructors are the heart and soul of the PGL experience. This role is a great opportunity to share your love of canoeing and the outdoors with our guests at our centres in Southern France and Spain.
PGL is the UK's leading provider of residential activity holidays and study courses for young people. More than 400,000 young guests enjoy a PGL trip each year, and we're looking for energetic staff team members to make that happen.
PGL Canoe Instructors focus primarily on introducing our guests to the world of paddling. From river descents on the adrenalin-busting Ardeche to the sun-drenched beaches of La Fosca on the Costa Brava, PGL operates open canoeing in a number of stunning locations.
As a Canoe Instructor, you'll be leading introductory sessions, briefing guests on safety, organising games and making sure your group have a fun, safe time on the water.
As well as working with like-minded people, you will benefit from the training on offer. Every staff member is offered Apprenticeship programmes in Active Leisure and Learning to help you get qualified 'on the job'.
We're looking for keen paddlers who ideally already hold a minimum of their UKCC Level 1 Coach award or UKCC Level 2 Coach award.
Our centre locations mean plenty of opportunity to paddle in some amazing places during your free time surrounded by stunning scenery.
We offer a competitive wage, free uniform and meals; accommodation is provided. You'll also receive transport to resort from a UK departure point, training/qualification opportunities and more!
