Employment Vacancies

If you are considering a career in the leisure import/distribution/retail sector then you should look at the list of vacancies below. If there is something there you like then please get in touch. Successful applicants need to be paddlers who are numerate, literate, computer literate, pleasant by nature and prepared to work hard and do their bit in a successful business.


Job title: Full Time - Sales Assistant


Job description:

This is a hands on face to face job for a pleasant and practical person interested in and participating in paddlesport. The main function of the job is to support the Manchester Canoes team in the import distribution and retailing of paddlesport equipment. Face to face, telephone and email contact with retail and trade customers requires good communication skills and knowledge of paddlesport. Canoes and kayaks are a handful when loading, unloading, and receiving and despatching so the successful applicant will need to be physically fit. Training in all aspects of the job will be provided and added to your own personal paddlesport skills. Some driving to make deliveries or collections is also part of the job so a clean driving license is a must. Trailer towing training will be provided for those without that licensed capability.
This position is the vertical slice of paddlesport import, distribution and retail – non paddlers need not apply as you will never understand the job or the passion for paddlesport.

About You

The position requires an understanding and participation in paddlesport. 
You must be numerate, literate and proficient with computer software programs including Microsoft Office and Outlook
Common sense and self motivation are more important than paper qualifications.
A full UK driving licence is required
