Les Stables Training Camps France want YOU!

Here is a VERY interesting opportunity (the dream summer job?!), for the right person. This is a position we have highlighted for several years now on the pages of TRI247, and always generates significant interest and applications.

Les Stables Training Camps France (www.les-stables.com) are seeking an assistant to help with the running their training camps for two sessions (of seven weeks and ten weeks respectively), between April and August 2018.

With a few hours of work per day – and perfect training opportunities literally on your door step, including a 25metre pool – this could be a great way to live the ‘full-time’ triathlon life while also building some great contacts and experience in the process.

As I mentioned this time last year, I had the privilege of spending a week at Les Stables myself on a holiday during 2016 – it is truly one of the most incredible places I have ever been to, run by amazing people (Mark and Sibs), combining superb facilities, great training and lots of fun too! Whoever gets selected for this role will be exceptionally well looked after and gain contacts and opportunities that go well over and above the simple ‘job specification’ below.

This really is a great opportunity for the right person. Read on and make sure you get your application in if it sounds interesting to you.

This scheduling leaves the successful candidate the rest of the day to do their own specific training.
