Outdoor Educator and Instructor/Surf Instructor/Sea kayak instructor
A-Team Edventures Limited (ATE) is a fast growing, Hong Kong-based Outdoor Education organization. The core business is providing highly professional, quality Outdoor Education programs and leadership camps to international and local schools and universities. These programs are designed to connect participants with the natural surroundings and teach them transferable life skills, as well as reinforce classroom curriculum links with real-world experience. ATE has two recreational business divisions, Surf Hong Kong and Kayak Hong Kong. All divisions operate under our “Culture of Safety” cardinal principle.
Surf Hong Kong is one of the foremost surf schools in Hong Kong, offering lessons, tours, kid’s adventure camps and school programs for individuals to large school groups. SHK offers surfing, SUP paddling, kayaking, canyoning, slack-lining, camping and more.
Kayak Hong Kong is a sea kayak training and tour operator, where locals and tourists alike can learn everything from basic sea kayaking skills to rescue and self-rescue to surf kayaking. Eco-adventure tours run from several locations in Hong Kong, encompassing paddle and snorkel trips, night paddles and overnight trips.
This is a single position, wherein time may be spent on any of the three aspects (likely 70% education, 20% kayaking, 10% surfing) depending on interest and experience. Therefore, ideal candidate will possess skills in a range of outdoor activities, especially sea kayaking and surfing, and have a broad base of environmental knowledge, capable of delivering educational programming to a wide range of ages and abilities.
During programs, the ideal candidate will model appropriate behaviors for school-aged children, motivate them in potentially unfamiliar/uncomfortable circumstances and clearly communicate a positive attitude and risk management behavior. The ability to communicate clearly and appropriately and engage with adults, children and other staff is of key importance.
As a young and rapidly growing company, a self-motivated candidate with a strong work ethic will have the chance to thrive in a dynamic environment. The ideal candidate possesses the ability to see a task through to completion, whatever the obstacles and come to the table with solutions. Because of the changeable nature of outdoor work, a candidate should quickly adapt to changing circumstances and demonstrate a flexible attitude, as well as a recognition of the needs of other staff, clients, teachers and children.
