Kintyre Seasports is a ground-breaking charity based on the shores of Campbeltown Loch.  We connect community organisations, watersports clubs and education providers and deliver health and well-being, education, and employability opportunities in the form of Changing Lives programmes; as well as non-profit commercial tourism to help cover costs and generate economic benefit for the community. The project is actively supported by RYA Scotland.


We are looking for a capable and enthusiastic Senior Instructor with sailing and paddlesport qualifications to help us take the next step in expanding the project. The SI will primarily deliver sailing and paddlesports instruction, and, depending on qualifications, other courses and activities, working with volunteer instructors in community projects and gaining experience in other disciplines. This is a unique opportunity for personal and professional development, with year round employment on the beautiful Kintyre Peninsula, and a relaxed and efficient working environment.

Please see the documents available below for more information on the role, and for background information on one of our main community programmes and our courses and activities aimed at visitors to the area.
