For a bright, enthusiastic and hard working paddler, this is a great opportunity to join our team on a full time seasonal contract running from 1st March – 30th October. You will be required to work flexibly with a minimum of alternate weekends and some evenings. For an ambitious and hard-working candidate there may be the opportunity to increase to a permanent post.
As a senior paddlesport coach you will be a role model for the part time coaching staff and take an active role in their development. You will take a leading role in the planning and delivery of a wide range of sessions across different disciplines (Canoe, Kayak, SUP). We deliver a large programme of courses and sessions which include school groups, children's paddlepower scheme, qualification courses and training, birthday parties and adult weekends away.
As part of your role you will work alongside the management team and deck crew to make sure the day to day running of the centre is looked after. This includes ensuring the boat hire operation runs smoothly and safely, customer enquiries are dealt with quickly and professionally and to keep the business clean, tidy and presentable.
