Associate Staff for April - November 2016

Associate Staff for April - November 2016

We require additional Associate Instructors to supplement our regular staff at this busy 110 bed centre, situated on the Clyde estuary 50 miles west of Glasgow, working mostly with clients from The City of Edinburgh.

Ideally you will already have comprehensive experience of working in similar situations with a wide variety of clients;

  • education groups age 8 -18
  • adults and families
  • community groups
  • challenging young adults;

with a wide variety of aims:

  • outdoor skills
  • PSD
  • teambuilding etc.

You will have a range of NGB awards from: First Aid, SPA, ML, BCU kayak/canoe (UKCC level 1 +), RYA Dinghy Instructor/Powerboat level 2, Trail Cycle Leader, CL, BOF level 2, and Local Cave Leader 2.

Minibus driving is an advantage; most of our mini buses require a D1 on the licence.

PVG check will be essential.

Daily pay depending on qualifications, experience and nature of work. You are likely to work one evening per week paid at £50. We can offer blocks of work to fit in with other commitments and there is the possibility of more long term work in the future.

Accommodation is not normally available.

Initially, send us a CV, including recent employers who can give us a short reference, and indicate your likely availability over the forthcoming months.


We anticipate that suitably experienced staff will need only a brief induction before being able to deliver the majority of our sessions, but we are also interested in less widely experienced staff who may need a longer period of induction.

If you would like information about these opportunities please write, or e-mail, to and enclose a C.V.

Trainee Instructors

There are also openings for Trainee Instructors who have some personal competence in the outdoors and have made the first steps on a coaching/leadership scheme. Although trainee instructors are not paid positions, we do provide board and lodgings. Please write or email to or Include a CV for immediate consideration.
