Employment Opportunities

Last updated 17/2/22

We currently have several opportunities available for motivated and hardworking individuals who would like to join our teams based at either Cornwall Canoes in St. Columb Road or Kayaks & Paddles in Lee Mill, Devon.


To perform well in these roles, you will need to understand the products we sell, so you will need to be a paddler. Paddling ability or the type of paddling does not matter – our staff include kayak anglers, recreational family paddlers, sea kayakers, canoeists and white-water paddlers of all abilities.


Whilst positions are available at both our stores in St. Columb Road (Cornwall) and Lee Mill (Devon), occasional cover at other sister companies may be required so a full UK driving license would be advantageous.


Positions Currently Available:

  • Sales Advisor & Warehouse Assistant - Full Time
  • Sales Advisor & Warehouse Assistant - Part Time
  • Website Maintenance & Sales Advisor - Full Time

To apply, please send your CV and covering email to careers@canoe-shops.co.uk
