Hangloose Adventure (Based at Eden but employed by Hangloose)

Trainee Instructors

£6.80 per hour

Full time hours available (although we will consider part time/job share), running until mid-September initially.

Our ambition at Hangloose is to bring unforgettable, adrenaline fuelled experiences to the UK, providing a safe environment where visitors can break out of their comfort zones, and live life to the fullest.
Our Instructors are the most important part of the team. They are not only responsible for the smooth running of the site on a daily basis, but also ensuring exceptional standards of both safety and customer care.
Whilst being the enthusiastic, professional faces of Hangloose, Instructors are also a go to point for both emotional and physical support, encouraging visitors to explore their sense of adventure and push themselves to their limit.
We often see up to 300 visitors a day during peak, come rain or shine, so the Instructor role can be challenging and physically demanding, as well as exhilarating and rewarding.
Full training will be given. You must be over 18 to apply for this role. Immediate start.
We are also looking for admin/support assistant 5 days a week until mid September.
With our new Activity ‘The Drop’ opening in the next week or so we need a hardworking/flexible and customer focused person to help make the summer run smoothly for our visitors.
This is a completely new role for Hangloose Adventure and so we are looking for an enthusiastic self-starter to grab the challenge and make it their own!
On a typical day you will be dealing with bookings, answering enquiries, selling tickets (both online and offline).
Essentially you will be organising our visitor journey to make it as seamless and enjoyable as possible to visit Hangloose @ Eden!
We are a fast growing company so we can promise that no 2 days will ever be the same and your input will be crucial to help develop the role!
Don’t think you’ll be stuck in the office all day either, as we are sure you will need to be on hand to support (and probably organise) the rest of our team!
Plus our activities need testing daily before we open to the public!
Immediate start.

The Closing date for these positions is Monday 3 August 2015
