Welcome adventure into your life in 2018 with a job in the outdoors!

PGL is the UK's market leading provider of activity holidays and study courses for young people.

PGL’s staff are central to our success and play a huge part to making our activity centres vibrant, fun and supportive environments for our guests to have an experience of a life time.

Working as a PGL Activity Instructor is a unique working experience. We aim to provide an environment that not only allows our guest to have a great time and develop but also our staff. 

As an Activity Instructor, you will lead our groups in a number of exciting activity sessions throughout the day from archery to zip wire and everything in between. You’ll also be on hand to ensure our guests have a great time even when they are not participating in activities and energy levels are maintained… not an easy task but get it right and it is extremely rewarding.

Our Activity Instructor role is ideal for anyone who enjoys being active in the outdoors, has a passion for sport and is able to provide effective instruction, leadership, support and encouragement to a group of guests. This is the perfect job for anyone looking to work with children in the future, start a career in the outdoors or just have a great working experience whilst making new friends and working as a team.

Individually you will be confident, engaging and have experience of working/volunteering with children. This could be working with your local Scout/Guide group, coaching a local sports team or volunteering with various other kid’s clubs or groups. If you can show this, along with the enthusiasm, in your application then you will be well on the way to an exciting new job.

As for the rest? We will take care of providing you with the training and support you need to be confident and successful in your role. Whilst working with PGL you will be offered many other training opportunities and gain a wide range of transferable skills that will look great on your CV when you do decide to move on, although a lot of our activity Instructors stay with us for many years.

Staff Package We offer a competitive wage, paid monthly, meals and on-site accommodation, if required, training and staff uniform.

Successful applicants are required to undergo an enhanced DBS disclosure, which PGL will pay for. You need to possess the legal right to live and work in the UK to be considered for employment with PGL. PGL is committed to the principles of equality and diversity and welcome applicants from all sectors of the community.
