We are a specialist sea kayak school and sea kayak shop located in the town centre of Oban, on the west coast of Scotland.
It’s a great place to be and every week we meet scores of really nice people who want to talk about their hobby or who want to take up sea kayaking.
We are looking for a sea kayaker to join the team in the shop, full-time or part-time, and to help us with the sea kayak school bookings and rentals from April/May to September.
Our opening hours vary and our busiest periods are during the spring, summer and autumn holidays.
We are often open 7 days a week during busy periods and you are expected to work quite a few week-ends.
The tasks are quite varied and include:
Making customers feel welcome and answer their questions
Taking bookings for the kayak school face to face and on the phone
Private sales face to face in the shop and on the phone
Carrying boats to the beach and help loading trailers
Stocking, pricing and displaying the merchandise
Opening and locking up the shop and maintaining the tidiness of the premises
Packing and sending mail orders
We are looking for a sea kayaker, who is honest and trustworthy, organised, has a positive, can-do attitude, and who lives in the Oban area already or is prepared to move.
Ideally you will have customer service experience, maybe in retail, catering or as a receptionist.
It would be great if you had a driving licence and experience driving a van & trailer.
Previous retail or admin experience a plus but not necessary.
We will give you thorough product training.
Salary on experience.
