Now recruiting Activity Instructors for 2019!
Our teams of Activity Instructors deliver taster activity sessions and an evening entertainment programme to our guests. We are looking for dynamic people who work well in a team and are also happy to get involved in other aspects of centre life from cleaning and serving at meal times to site work.
What we’re looking for…
Do you have plenty of energy, enthusiasm, motivation and the ability to relate to young people and adults alike? Then Acorn is the company for you! We’re looking for staff to deliver excellent customer service to our guests, whilst instructing fun and safe activity sessions for them.
If you love mucking in and working hard whilst instructing various activities and also having the opportunity to live in and explore some fantastic locations with like-minded people, then apply today!
We are ideally looking for people who can commit to working the full season until late August 2019 and have experience of working in outdoor adventure with young people between 7-17 years old.
Our qualified roles require at least one of the following NGB Qualifications:
- UKCC Level 1/2 Paddlesports Coach

- SPA/RCI assessed (or trained)
All our staff participate in a comprehensive induction & training programme and will have the opportunity to complete pre and post-season training to gain NGB qualifications in different activities.
You don’t need to speak another language to work at one of our European centres; however, if you can speak French, Italian or Spanish, visits to nearby local towns can be a great way to brush up on your skills.

- A competitive seasonal wage, food and accommodation package available at a great value rate
