PGL has been introducing young people to exhilarating watersports for over 50 years...

From river descents on the adrenalin-busting Ardèche to the sun-drenched beaches of La Fosca on the Costa Brava, to paddling some of the UK’s most loved rivers, to raft building sessions on our purpose built lakes – if you love watersports, then you’ll love working for PGL! We operate open canoeing in a number of stunning locations as well as operating RYA recognised teaching establishments in France and Spain.

We are looking for people who can share their passion for the water with our young guests and inspire, motivate and reassure.If that’s not enough, we also have positions for Windsurfing Instructors, Surfing Instructors and the ability to progress your career in watersports. We have places available in February on our free UKCC Level 1 kayak courses which are an ideal first step in becoming a qualified paddlesports instructor.
