Description:
Kayak / Paddle Sports Instructor

Do you want to get more involved as an instructor? Looking for a place where your voice will be heard?

What's the job?

Our instructors are the heart of our activity programmes. Leading watersports sessions including Sailing, Windsurfing, Kayaking and Stand Up Paddle boarding, as well as helping deliver all aspects of the Voyager Adventure programme. You'll spend a lot of time on the Med, both personal training and leading activities, and you'll also get to see the region by accompanying groups on their excursions.

Key accountabilities for this role include:
• Leading beach activity sessions
• Assisting with peer training and development
• Delivering in-resort Evening Entertainment
• Changeover and cleaning of customer accommodation
• Accompanying groups on excursions
This is an exciting overseas opportunity for adventure professionals with a company dedicated to providing safe, high quality experiences in an active environment.

Who does this role suit?
We are looking for qualified paddlesports instructors with some experience. You will participate in full pre-season training, but we'd expect you to be competent to lead a decent paddle session without prompting. As with all seasonal jobs there are some long and tiring days, but we're based at fantastic locations and encourage you to make the most of where you are.

Want to learn a new discipline? Our activity equipment is available for staff use and we reserve several staff fun-day's throughout the season, making the most of what the region has to offer. In past seasons our teams have been rafting, wake boarding and canyoning. Where will we go this time?

Resort teams are circa 12 staff. You'll be expected to show a high standard of professionalism and a solid work ethic, but also know when it's time to have fun.

Professional qualifications
• You will need a minimum UKCC (BCU) Level 1 paddle sports coach
