this isn't a part time vacancy. If you are looking for a more permanent post, approximately two thirds of our annual staff are retained for the following year. If you are a good instructor you can develop with our support.
Instructors need to be 18 years of age or older. We offer £13,000 per annum if you are aged 18-20, £16,300 per annum if you are aged 21 to 24. If you are aged 25 or older, you will receive £17,000. Regardless of your age you are all managed and treated equally with the same respect.
All of our multi activity instructors live on site at our centres and we provide three hot meals per day. This means you are living, working and socialising with lots of similar like minded people.
28 days paid leave pro-rata.
You will receive comprehensive training in all necessary aspects for you to provide safe, fun and challenging activity sessions. The training never stops; you are always learning something new to keep mentally and physically astute. This is extremely rewarding work especially when you encourage children to overcome their fears, develop an inner confidence and a sense of achievement.
We are a small family company with a personal approach which allows you greater opportunities of advancement than you would expect in a larger impersonal corporate structure. From our company ethos of mutual respect you will not be known as a payroll number but as an important part of the team known by the Directors down.
It is highly rewarding to really feel that your involvement in the company is contributing to something really successful and beneficial to a lot of children giving you the realisation that you are part of the success.
