Go Ape Activity Assistant

    Customer Service
    Woburn Safari Park
    Job description

    Woburn Safari Park is home to some of the world’s most magnificent and endangered animals. The park consists of a Foot Safari, Road Safari, Go Ape, Retail and catering outlets and is enjoyed by families looking for a fun day out. 

    We’re passionate about giving the customer an experience to remember every visit – that’s why we need hard working, friendly and adventurous people who really care about providing the best experience possible!

    We’re looking for Go Ape Activity Assistants (previously named Instructors) to look after our customers in the great outdoors, at site and in the woods until December 2020 as they take on their Go Ape challenge – you’ll be fitting harnesses, delivering safety briefs and training, and be out and about assisting with local marketing and much more besides!

    Previous instructional and training experience would be desirable but is certainly not essential.

    You’ll understand that we stick to our Health and Safety rules, so if you’re thinking of applying, you’ll need to be over 18 so you are able to supervise all age groups.

    Go Ape offers physically and mentally challenging roles out in the fresh air like no other – both fun and rewarding. There’s a great sense of camaraderie and connectedness within the teams and we’re committed to training you to our high standards with our in-house training programme – a mixture of online and practical development.

    If you are looking for a career with us, or are just looking for work for a season, for us it’s a two-way street – it’s not just about what you can do for us, but also importantly, how we can help you to develop as a person and gain or enhance those essential life skills.

    We promise that your time here will be rewarding and memorable and that (if you don’t return next season – many of you will!), you’ll leave with a whole bunch of enhanced skills to take to your next role. You’ll be more confident, qualified, assertive, and able to make decisions and communicate with people of all backgrounds – not to mention the first class customer service skills!

    If you feel as strongly as we do about living life more adventurously and encouraging and helping others to do so, this could well be the perfect environment for you.
