Get trained as a Paddlesports Instructor. No experience necessary!
PGL have a variety of opportunities for new and qualified paddlers to introduce canoeing and kayaking to our guests. If you love nothing more than being active, meeting new people, inspiring others, and spending time in the great outdoors then apply NOW to join PGL as a Paddlesports Instructor.
For those joining without qualifications, we will put you through your UKCC Level One 2 Star paddling qualification for free, along with other training, at the start of your time with us. Our training courses, taking place in early 2019, have limited places remaining so time is of the essence!
PGL is the UK's leading provider of residential activity holidays and study courses for young people.
More than 400,000 young guests enjoy a PGL trip each year, and we’re looking for energetic staff team members to make that happen.
Canoeing is at the heart of PGL and we have long recognised this sport as a great way to introduce children to the outdoors. As a PGL Paddlesports Instructor, you will split your time between leading paddling sessions and taster activity sessions in our core land based activities. Depending on the location of your centre, you could be teaching groups on rivers, natural lakes or on-site purpose built paddlesports lakes. The Paddlesports Instructor role is a fantastic opportunity to develop your all-round outdoor leadership skills in a supportive environment with plenty of scope for future training and qualifications.
Whether you're looking for a career in the outdoor industry or just want to spend some time instructing your favourite activity, PGL has excellent opportunities in the UK, France and Spain.
We offer a competitive wage, meals and free uniform; accommodation is provided, plus transport to our overseas centre from a UK departure point for staff.
More than that, a job with PGL gives you the chance to live and work with people from around the globe in a rewarding and fun environment. There's a great social life and you'll gain numerous transferable skills for your CV.
In helping our guests have the time of their lives, you'll be having yours!
