Segway Tour Guide and Outdoor Activity Instructor
May to September 2018

Segway Hebrides provides Segway Tours and other outdoor activities operating from the Woodlands Centre in Lews Castle Grounds, and at other locations across Lewis and Harris.

We are looking for a Segway Tour Guide and Outdoor Activity Instructor to join us from May to September 2018. The role is 5 days a week (including Saturdays) and 7 hours a day. The hourly rate is £8.75 with holidays provided on a pro-rata basis.

A varied role, it requires working with customers from all around the world and in partnership with Cruise Ship companies. A disclosure check will be required as we work with young adults under 16. Customer safety is paramount to the Segway experience and is a key component of the role.

Your duties will include:

  • Training customers to ride a Segway safely
  • Maintaining Segways and other equipment
  • Providing information about the history and features of the Castle Grounds and other tour areas
  • Assisting at group events and other outdoor activities as required
  • Handling tour bookings and customer enquiries
  • Marketing activities including updating social media accounts

You will also be responsible for making sure our customers have a great time on their Segway experience! The successful candidates will likely be enthusiastic individuals with a love of the outdoors and the ability to convey that enthusiasm to customers. They will also demonstrate the ability to train and supervise groups of all ages.

You don’t need any Segway experience – we’ll give you full training.

Driving licence desirable. A current First Aid Certificate would be an advantage.
