Location : Europe, Spain
Start Date : Ongoing
The Salary : Competitive Seasonal Package
We believe in getting back to basics and using the real, natural environment for our activity sessions, including lakes, mountains, rivers, beaches, crags and caves.
Over 35 years, we have built up an excellent reputation for safety and delivering quality activity programmes and now have 11 accreditations and hundreds thousands of customers travelling with us each year.
Our traditional pre-erected camping villages are designed to give our groups their own private space for sleeping, eating and socialising, to encourage a real ‘community spirit’. This is a really easy environment for teachers/leaders to monitor their group and make sure everyone is safe and having a good time.
A Typical Day in the Job
Our Cala Llevado centre is based by the warm Mediterranean Sea in the Costa Brava meaning our activities there are second to none. You will be living and working in an exclusive part of the area within a larger holiday complex, with shops, pools, restaurant/bar all on site. You will be responsible primarily for the beach operations. Your leadership and organisational skills will be tested to the full as you will be responsible for the instructional staff team, their training and monitoring the safe and effective delivery of all activity programmes at the centre. If you have excellent standards, are highly motivated and have the people skills needed to deliver superb customer service to our guests at all times, then Acorn Adventure is the company for you.
