Job Title: Sales & Website Maintenance Assistant (Full Time)

Job description:

This is a hands on face to face job for a pleasant and practical person interested in and participating in paddlesport. 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. The job will also involve the day to day maintenance of our websites with regular content updates to ensure our online portfolio remain current and accurate. The role does not require an IT degree, although an understanding of html and Adobe Dreamweaver would be beneficial.

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.
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.


  • Professional and knowledgeable presentation and advice on the company's product range.
  • Process retail and trade Sales in the manner instructed.
  • Maintain the business management accounting systems.
  • Maintain the business websites
  • Assist in product purchasing, stock control and stock sharing.
  • Maintain product presentation.
  • Maintain the cleanliness of the workplace to a high standard.
  • Delivery and collection of product from suppliers or other branches

About You

The position requires an understanding and participation in paddlesport.
You will have a good level of computer skills and attention to detail required for maintaining accurate online content. Experience using Dreamweaver and photo editing software would be advantageous.

Common sense and self motivation are more important than paper qualifications.

A full UK driving licence is required
