We NEED an Assistant Instructor to help us with our Summer Season.

Live onsite. Summer in Dorset. Beach life. Incredible flip flop tan.

Our Assistant Instructors work 30 – 40 hours over 5 days a week including some weekends and lots of evenings and overnights.

Assistant Instructors have time off in the middle of the day so they can build personal experience and learn about working with clients. 

We offer a food and accommodation package for £48 per week.

– Serving and looking after our clients at breakfast, lunch and dinner
– Shadowing our instructors on a variety of activities

To be an Assistant Instructor with Land & Wave you will need to have the qualities and experiences below;

  • Be confident talking to other human beings
  • Have some experience in customer service
  • Be available to attend training including first aid, safeguarding and food hygiene before you start work (which we will pay for).
  • Have an enhanced DBS check processed within the last 3 months. (We can process this for you if you do not have one)

Why work for Land & Wave?

Assistant Instructors have lots of opportunity to build personal and professional experience, they get out and about, play in the great outdoors and shadow our instructors.

South Dorset is an incredible place to have adventures with great climbing, sea kayaking, coasteering, mountain biking and paddle boarding.

Swanage and Poole are superb for sail and kite sports, we even get surf at Kimmeridge Bay.

We’ll support you and help facilitate and pay for training and assessment courses when we can.

All our managers are there to help, they all spend at least two day a week working with clients and the seasonal team – they know what’s happening ‘on the ground’.

We work with schools, youth groups, stag and hen dos, corporate clients and families. Delivering over 20 different activities. There is lots of variety!
