Share your passion for paddling with our young guests. Canoe or Kayak Instructor
Canoeing is at the heart of PGL and we have long recognised this sport as a great way to introduce children to the outdoors.
PGL is the UK's leading provider of residential activity holidays and study courses for young people.
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.
At some of our UK centres, you'll split your time between paddling sessions and leading land-based activities including climbing, ropes courses, quadbiking and archery. We offer a comprehensive pre-employment training course to give you the skills, knowledge and confidence you'll need for this.
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 whilst you work.
Our centre locations mean plenty of opportunity to paddle during your free time, either on flat or moving water in the UK to adrenalin-busting white water in the Ardèche.
Return transport from a UK departure point to our overseas centre is provided for staff with their employment package.
Successful applicants are required to undergo an enhanced DBS disclosure, which PGL will pay for.
You need to possess the legal right to live and work in the UK to be considered for this position.
PGL is committed to the principle of equality and diversity. We welcome applicants from all sectors of the community.
We're looking for keen paddlers who ideally already hold a minimum of their UKCC Level 1 or UKCC Level 2 Coach award.
If you do not hold these awards, but are an experienced paddler, you may be interested in our Activity Instructor positions where you can build up your personal competency hours during your free time and work towards gaining your UKCC awards.
