About Canoe Trail Outdoor Instructors & Admin Assistant Needed
Bookings and Admin Assistant
Part Time (flexible working window)
Estimated 15 -20 hours per week
Canoe Trail is looking for an experienced administrator to help with customer bookings, scheduling and other office tasks. An interest in the outdoors would be an advantageous but not essential. It is crucial to have a good telephone manner and computer skills. Strong organisational skills and an ability to promote the business to new and existing customers is essential. The hours are flexible to some extent Monday to Friday and of course we are busiest in the school holidays for tourism bookings.
Seasonal Outdoor Instructors
Full Time (flexible working window) includes weekends
Season from April to October
We are looking for hard working instructors to join our team. Ideally staff will hold some national governing body qualifications in paddling (canoeing and kayaking) and potentially other qualifications such as Mountain Leader, Archery or similar. Ideal candidates will have a proven track record in the outdoors with relevant experience in paddling, hiking and expeditions or bushcraft activities.
Potentially for the right candidate we are able to help with instructor training and mentoring. A first aid certificate and DBS will be required (again we may be able to help with this).
A clean driving licence and ability to tow trailers is essential as our business is mobile operating between different bases.
Seasonal and Freelance Instructors
As above we are looking for experienced and/or qualified instructors to work on a freelance basis. Typically we provide blocks of work, in single days, weekends and block weeks.
