Instructors work flexibly at centres in Bradwell, Danbury, Harlow and Mersea, which may require working evenings, weekends and bank holidays.  In return, Essex Outdoors offers an attractive salary, in-house training on a wide range of activities, and the opportunity to enjoy residential experiences across the UK, and abroad.

UKBA Points based System

As part of this reform the UK Border Agency (http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/) has introduced a points system so that those coaches we need from abroad can work in Britain.  The UKBA has recognised the BCU as the governing body for setting the endorsement requirements and issuing endorsements for coaches in canoeing

There are now two categories in which sports people and coaches can enter the UK and work in a professional capacity in canoeing. The two categories are known as Skilled Tier 2 (sportspeople) and Temporary Tier 5 (sporting)

The sportspersons category of Skilled Tier 2 (sportspeople) of the Points Based System is for elite sports people and coaches who are internationally established at the highest level, whose employment will make a significant contribution to the development of their sport at the highest level in the UK and who intend to base themselves in the Uk

The sportspersons category of Temporary Tier 5 (sporting) of the Points Based System is for internationally established sports people at the highest level in their sport and/or whose employment will make a significant contribution to the development and operation of that particular sport in the UK.  It is also for coaches who must be suitably qualified to fulfil the role in question.  This category is for temporary workers who come to the United Kingdom for up to 12 months
The UK Border Agency website explains how your organisation should apply for a licence to be on the register of sponsors for the points-based system.
