Camp Suisse is looking for a highly-motivated, great team player to join our activities team as our mountain bike specialist at our children’s summer camp in the small beautiful village of Torgon, Switzerland.
This is a seasonal contract starting in May and running through August 2019 and would therefore suit someone looking for temporary seasonal employment involving bike technician and activity leading work with children.
Key duties include:
• Be responsible for the safe use, maintenance and inspection of all mountain bike equipment, observing and maintaining the prescribed standards
• Deliver professional, effective and great fun mountain biking and adventure activity sessions to our guests (children aged 7-17)
• As this is a role within a children’s residential summer camp other duties such as evening activities are also part of the job
Skills and Experience
We are looking for a talented and adaptable individual with a genuine passion for outdoor activities. You must be mature, punctual, professional and responsible with a real enthusiasm for the outdoors and for coaching and teaching children and young people.
First Aid and working toward outdoor industry qualifications are advantageous but not essential, e.g. Cytech Level One and MIAS (MBL) for mountain biking and RCI for climbing.
In addition to looking after the mountain bike programme you will run a broad range of activities and sports throughout the camp on a day-to-day basis. As this is a residential position, all Activity Leaders are also involved in other areas of the camp including evening entertainment, night time supervision and domestic duties as required.
