Les Stables Training Camps France summer job vacancy 2019

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.

We are pleased to say that most of the recent successful applicants have been found after initially reading about the opportunity on these pages. So, if you plan on applying… good luck!

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 nine weeks each), between April and August 2019.

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.

I have had the privilege of spending a week at Les Stables myself on holiday in both 2016 and 2018 – 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.
