With JCA no two days will look the same. You’ll be the leader of the pack for activities such as fencing, archery, high ropes and watersports. You’ll help guests overcome their fears high above the trees on the abseiling tower and aerial trek and help them down on the ground to develop team building skills that will last a lifetime! Keeping your group safe and making sure everyone has the time of their life will be your top priority!

All of this adventure can be hectic but seeing our guests happy and smiling after a day full of activities is why we say this is the most rewarding journey you will ever take.

We’ll give you all of the training, equipment and confidence to step up into your superhero status as well as the chance to continue this exciting career with us in a more senior role.

This role is paid at the National Minimum Wage – (£5.90 – £7.83 per hour dependent on age category).

Our instructors have the chance to live on site (so no boring commute to work!) All of your meals, uniform and training will be included. You’ll live and breathe what it means to be an Outdoor Activity Instructor.
