Our Instructors work an average of 40 hours over 4 or 5 days on and 3 days off pattern of work - you'll always have time for your own adventures.


Our seasonal staff can start work during March and finish during November

To be a Seasonal Outdoor Instructor you will need to hold all of the essential qualifications listed below, plus some of the desirable ones.

We’re based in Swanage, Dorset on the Jurassic Coast. 


Land & Wave instructors are kind, compassionate, gregarious human beings that can think on their feet and solve problems independently.


Accommodation is available.  


Essential qualifications and experience...

UKCC BCU Level 1 coach or Paddle Sport Instructor 

BCU 3 star Sea award or Sea Kayak Award - if you're a confident paddler we can provide you with this qualification 

SPA Training, Climbing Wall Instructor Training  

Some experience of Team Building, Raft Building or Bushcraft.

Why work for Land & Wave in Dorset?

We'll pay you a fair wage.

We'll pay for training and assessment courses; we're planning Sea Kayak Leader, Lowland Leader and Rock Climbing Instructor training and assessment courses (and more) during 2018 these will be free for our staff.

The Dorset coast is incredible for climbing, coasteering, SUP, kayaking and wild swimming.

We have a team that is big enough to achieve fantastic things but small enough to be friendly and human.

All our managers spend at least a day a week working with clients in the sea or in the woods.

We work with school children Monday - Friday. We work with stag groups, corporate clients, family's and 'open sessions' at the weekends.

During the school holidays we're busy with Gold DofE residentials, kids clubs and youth sessions - there's lots of variety.


Have a look through our website and socials before you apply, get a feel for what we do and how we do it...


How to apply?

Apply early!


We'll phone you for a chat or drop you an email a day or two after we receive your application.

Have a great winter...
