We're really proud of our team, and this is consistently mirrored in the Tripadvisor reviews from our customers. Our bookings team are always here to help you make the most of your time in The New Forest, and our instructors will always ensure you absolutely have the best time with us.

Activities Instructor

typical day A Typical Day in the Job

Approx 80% of the Instructor position will be customer-facing; customer service, group management and dealing with clients. 20% of your time you’ll be sorting out equipment, sites and resources for our customers.

Days can be varied; one day you could be teaching Archery to groups of families, and others you could be out on the Beaulieu River taking a school group on a paddling expedition. The role is certainly varied but exciting!

Instructors usually start the day with a briefing at our base from the Activities Manager before dispersing to the different activity sites around The New Forest to deliver their activities for the day. You'll complete in-house training beforehand to top up any awards you may have to ensure that you're delivering activities to our standards and processes.
