Employment Description

Whynot Adventure is looking for talented individuals to help with our guiding and rental business located at Jake’s Landing, Kejimkujik National Park and National Historic Site. We’re hoping to find ambitious, energetic wilderness loving people to help us facilitate our guest’s wilderness adventure.

This position will require an in depth understanding of Whynot Adventure’s reservation and risk management systems as well as the ability to lift and manoeuver canoes and kayaks to and from the water’s edge. Our systems require a fair bit of paperwork, so thoughtful, neat, thorough and concise penmanship is required. As well, beyond the confines of the office we’ll expect that this position be able to assist guests into and out of the boats, demonstrate safe boating procedures and instruct proper paddling technique. We encourage all of our employees to spend as much time as possible exploring the park and familiarizing themselves with the local adventure opportunities.

It should be noted that the communities of Caledonia and Maitland Bridge are the nearest and would be most suitable for summer accommodation. Owning a vehicle is almost necessary to travel to and from work on a daily basis.

Employment perks include free use of WA adventure equipment and gear (depending on availability), as well as a shoulder season subsidy for park exploration.
