Outdoor Activity and Adventure Jobs
Specialist tour companies (many of those named above in the watersports category) also employ a range of dry outdoor pursuits instructors, trainees and guides. Any competent climber, mountaineer or mountain bike rider should have no trouble in getting some kind of job in this field. However, due to the increase in litigation and tighter health and safety rules many companies insist on the very highest level of qualification to work with their groups as an instructor. The good news about this though is that many companies will pay for competent staff to bring their qualifications up to scratch.
For over 100,000 children every year, a group adventure holiday means the adventure of a lifetime and thousands of energetic people are needed to help make this happen. The industry employs many kinds of outdoor instructors including climbing and walking instructors.
Watersports Instructors are in demand worldwide, also in demand are people with a MLTB (Mountain Leader Training Board) qualification (especially the Summer award).
