We are looking for a Centre Assistant / Trainee Instructor to join our small team for 2020 season.  


The job commences on 25th January until 7th November.


We are an Outdoor Education Centre looking after around 75 young people a week located on the rather lovely Isle of Arran just off West Central Scotland.  We teach a mix of Field Studies - Geography, Biology & Geology.  We also provide a range of outdoor activities - canoes, raft building, mountain biking, abseiling, archery, orienteering & geocaching.  


Your role will be to work as a Centre Assistant throughout our departments - catering, housekeeping, activities & field studies.  During this time you will be provided with all the training required to be an Instructor - this includes, First Aid, Mountain Leader Training & Activity Training.  You will then have the opportunity to move into an instructor role in August.


The position requires being comfortable in the outdoor environment.  It also means being happy in a rural area.  If you are passionate about your Play Station or X Box & need to look at your phone every 5 minutes, this is not the place for you.  However if you enjoy a challenge, working with young people in a fantastic landscape & the opportunity to acquire a wide range of new skills - then this might well be for you.


The position commences 25th January with initial training & runs until 7th November.  You will work a 35 hr week.  Some of this time might well be 0900-1700.  However it could be 0730-1230 & 1630 until 1930. We need a flexible team. Pay is 8.21 per hour.  Accommodation is provided for a cost of 49.00 per week.  You will have a single room in our separate staff accommodation building.


Please send a CV with a covering letter to: chris@lochranzacentre.co.uk


As part of the application process you will be required to complete an application form.  If short listed you will be invited to an interview at Lochranza Centre at the beginning of January.  All necessary costs are covered.
