To help grow our reputation as a leading provider of high quality residential activity holidays, at JCA we recognise that our centre staff and instructors are among the most vital parts of our business. As an activity instructor you have daily contact with our guests and it is your dedication and enthusiasm that enable us to deliver such outstanding customer service.
Working as part of a close-knit centre team, you will quickly establish solid friendships, develop many new skills, and boost your future career potential in the outdoor adventure industry. We would love to hear from you no matter whether you are on a gap year before university, or recently left education and are looking to forge a new career as an activity instructor. Many of our instructors stay for more than one season and being part of the Travelopia group, there are plenty of opportunities to move between business as your career with us takes off.
A Typical Day in the Job
The low down…
With JCA no two days will look the same. You’ll be the leader of the pack for activities such as fencing and archery in the sunshine, final shoot out at the laser quest and helping guests overcome their fears on the abseiling tower and aerial trek above the trees! Your top priority will be keeping your pack safe, and making sure everyone has the time of their life.
We’ll give you all of the training, equipment and confidence to step up into your superhero status and at the end of the Apprenticeship you will walk away with an industry recognised qualification in Outdoor Activity Leadership – the equivalent of an NVQ level 3. You’ll also be given the chance to continue this exciting career with us and progress to ‘Senior’ status!
Who are we looking for?
At JCA, we provide full training and development - so no previous experience required! We just ask for a passion in working with children and a love of outdoor activities!
What we can offer you
What’s in it for you!
We offer our apprentices the chance to live on site (so no boring commute to work!) You will make friends for life and tonnes of unforgettable memories whilst completing your apprenticeship! The place you’ll call home is Condover Hall, our flagship centre in Shropshire.
Over the Summer you’ll have the opportunity to branch out and experience a different type of adventure at one of our other centres across the UK.
We’ve got it covered
All of your meals, uniform and training will be included…so what are you waiting for?
