Go Kayaking is one of the most progressive paddlesports shops in the UK, with access to the most knowledgeable minds in the industry. More than that, we’re a close team of passionate paddlers who love the sport and providing excellent service.

We have two waterside stores: one in Runcorn which was established in the 1970s, and our newly expanded store in Llangollen that was established in 2020.

If you think you’d enjoy working in part of the paddlesports industry and think you’d make a good addition to our team – read on below to find out more about our available positions

We are currently looking for two new staff members to join our friendly team, with roles available at both our sites.
