Want a lively, versatile Outdoor Instructor job PLUS loads of opportunity for progression? This role is for you
We’re looking for multi-activity Outdoor Instructors, who love working in the natural landscape.
Authentic Adventure in Dorset
Land & Wave is all about authentic outdoor experiences on the stunning Dorset coast. Dive into the rugged thrill of coasteering along the Jurassic Coast, paddle through the stunning waters of Swanage Bay, and share your bushcraft skills in the serene ambiance of ancient woodlands. Even our onsite activities come with killer views of Corfe Castle. It’s not about cheesy adventures; it’s about real, raw, and memorable moments in nature that leave you craving more. Join us, and let’s ditch the clichés for some genuine outdoor vibes.
