The role

Passionate about providing life changing adventurous experiences for young people and adults? Love the outdoors and adventurous activities. ? This could be the opportunity you’ve been looking for!

As an Activity Centre Apprentice you will learn a wide range of skills based around the centre. A large portion of your time will be spent in reception working in guest care. You’ll learn about marketing strategies, customer care and business. You’ll also learn about instructing, maintaining activities, compiling risk assessments and completing activity checks.

You’ll also learn about centre tasks generally and you’ll spend some time working with the maintenance team and the cleaning team. It’s a really varied role. You’ll work with the college to achieve an NVQ2 in outdoor activity leadership. You’ll be given a number of training courses including customer care, health and safety, food hygiene and first aid. You’ll start by learning lots and gradually work up to running reception by yourself at times. Our aim is that by the time you leave you are ready for a full time role in a centre. As most of our business is at weekends, the role will regularly work Saturday and Sundays.

About you
You will be enthusiastic about the outdoors, ideally you’ll be looking to work in guest care or management in the future. You’ll be happy to live on site and commit to the full year. You’ll be between 18 (or very close to, on starting) and 21 and you’ll have ideally at least a grade c in math and English GCSE.
