Adventure Solos: Work with us
2x Adventure Leader Roles
ABOUT ADVENTURE SOLOS
Adventure Solos' events are all solo-friendly. This means they are designed specifically for people that would like a group adventure, booking onto the events by themselves. All of our guests are adults; most are in their 30s-50s. Our events are typically either week-long events in Scotland, or weekend events in and around the Lake District in North West England. We have a loyal customer base, and we have big plans for the future. Adventure Solos is founded and led by Chris Bone. He has a background in funding growth businesses and set up Adventure Solos to share adventures with others regardless of their experience level. Adventure Solos started trading in 2019 and is now a fast-growing Limited company. Adventure Solos is a trading name of Adventure Breaks Group Limited. You can find out more about our events here:
We are currently looking for two outdoor instructors to run events on a freelancer basis as ‘Adventure Leaders’. The events are based in Scotland (5 day events, generally Monday to Friday). The primary events you would be running are:
Caledonian Canal (Fort William to Inverness) canoe-camping events; and
River Spey canoe-camping events.
These events are typically small groups of around 4-8 guests. The guests generally book on by themselves without knowing anyone else. This means a primary function of the role is to ‘host’ the guests. This includes helping to create a fun and friendly group dynamic, and would therefore be best suited to someone that is generous, gregarious and sociable. You do not generally need to 'baby-sit' customers (eg you do not need to cook for them or set up their tents each night etc). Instead, being able to build up rapport is vital in order to create the right group dynamic. We include an expense allowance so that you can fully participate with guests - for example to cover a drink and meal if the group is eating in a pub.
Base rate of pay is £750 for the a 5 day trip (£150 per day) plus:
participation in a bonus scheme (£200+ per week additional is very achievable);
There may also be opportunities to get involved in leading other events if you are suitably qualified, such as hiking the Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge, West Highland Way and East Highland Way events.
WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR
We are most interested in understanding any value-add beyond technical qualifications that you may be able to bring to Adventure Breaks events. Specifically, a suitable candidate will be:
Open, honest, reliable and dependable. These qualities are essential.
Generous, gregarious and sociable. A key role is to create a fun and friendly dynamic between strangers.
A problem solver. Things don’t always go to plan.
WHAT WE OFFER
We provide a fun and friendly working environment where you will be rewarded for helping us to succeed. We believe we offer a fair base rate of pay, plus the opportunity to earn significant performance related bonuses. Adventure Solos' events are social events, and you are a key factor in creating the right dynamic on an event. Successful Adventure Leaders are able to earn significant bonuses.
