Ardroy is a significant local employer, and plays an active part in the Lochgoilhead community.
All staff must undergo Enhanced Disclosure Scotland before taking up their position, and all are First Aid trained.
The instructional team is made up of full-time instructors backed up by a pool of regular freelancers who top up our requirements. They all come with a wealth of experience, an enthusiasm for the outdoors, and an inspirational approach, but also maintaining a high level of safety and quality throughout.
These instructors would be useless without the support from the Administration, Domestic and Maintenance teams.
The Administration team deal with customer enquiries, and do the ‘swan’s feet’ bit, working away behind the scenes, ensuring a smooth-flowing operation.
The Domestic team produce high quality meals to the more than 3,000 people who stay at Ardroy every year. They also have the never-ending task of cleaning, ensuring the centre is ready to receive each new group. We hold the Healthy Living Award - and were also the first establishment in Cowal to receive the Eat Safe Award from Argyll and Bute Council.
The Maintenance team have the task of keeping the buildings maintained, plus our substantial grounds. They also spend time driving our minibuses to transport groups between the centre and off-site activities.
Ardroy is a Social Enterprise, and a Company Limited by Guarantee, as well as being a Charity.
We like to think we are a friendly bunch, delivering a high quality experience to all our customers. Feedback from our clients consistently identifies this as being one of the most positive aspects of the Ardroy experience.
