Hiring school assistant

Untitled Document

Elevation Kiteboarding is looking for an outgoing and energetic new addition to the team for our school at Nitinat Lake this summer. The position is ideal for someone who loves the outdoors, interacting with others and has a passion for kiteboarding.

Elevation Kiteboarding started in 2005 when the sport was still relatively new and there were few teaching. Fast forward 12 years later and we have grown, offering lessons at Nitinat Lake, BC and La Ventana, Mexico with a staff of twelve. We work with students as young as 8 years old to mature student who is young at heart. We work with students of all levels from beginner’s to advanced kiteboarders, as well as offering women’s and kids camps. Our success has been from tailoring our instruction to the needs and abilities of each student, focusing on safety while encouraging fun.

The School Assistant will work closely with both the instructors as well as each individual student. The day starts with opening the school and greeting the day’s students introducing them to their instructor. When it comes time to ‘suit up,’ the School Assistant aids in choosing gear, rigging and launching each student. The school is also a gear shop and is a dynamic location on the beach. The School Assistant is also there to facilitate sales and answer questions on gear – our school is a retailer for North and Ion. The individual in this position will work closely with the School Manager and the Owner, scheduling students and taking payments.

We have an awesome group of instructors that have been with us for years, as well as a few new faces. The atmosphere at the school is laid back and we have the most beautiful backdrop that one could ask for – Nitinat Lake. The best perk of the job is the ability to take kiteboarding breaks!

Nitinat Lake is located on the west coast of Vancouver Island, halfway between Nanaimo and Victoria. We continue to come back here to teach as it has the steadiest wind in western North America. The Nitinat Lake campsite is located next to the lake and is a short walk to the school. This is where are staff reside over the summer, surrounded by old growth forest and a pristine lake in the back yard.

This job is perfect for the individual who:

  • Loves to kite
  • Enjoys being outside
  • Is a people person
  • Likes having fun!

We are looking for the School Assistant to join our team in early June and remain with us until the school closes at the beginning of September. To apply for the position, please email Jennifer at lessons@elevationkiteboarding.com. Candidates will be contacted for an interview shortly afterwards.
