Immediate starts available for NGB Qualified Activity Instructors!

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 enjoy 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 we want you to apply!

We are ideally looking for people for an immediate start who can commit to working the full season until the end of August, with experience of working in outdoor adventure with young people between 7-17 years old.

Our qualified roles require one or more of the following NGB Qualifications

  • UKCC Level 1/2 Paddlesports Coach (or equivalent)
  • BC 2*/3*/4* Canoe and/or Kayak
  • WWSR/FSRT
  • RYA Dinghy/Windsurf/Safety boat Instructor
  • RYA Powerboat Level 2
  • SPA/ML assessed (or trained)
  • GNAS/Archery GB, BFA/Go Fencing, NPLQ, YPS Rifles

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 various 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 towns can be a great way to brush up on your skills.

Why work for Acorn?

On top of the rewarding opportunity to help guests of all ages overcome fears and try new, exciting things, we can offer you:

  • A competitive seasonal package with 3 meals a day and accommodation included overseas, and available at a great value rate in the UK
  • The use of facilities and equipment in free time
  • Opportunities to complete training and NGB qualifications
  • Personal development and progression – we love to promote from within!
  • The experience of a lifetime, working in beautiful locations making lifelong friends
