Jess Hitchings

Sailing Instructor for PGL

What I do

Since leaving Hartpury I have worked all over the world in places like France, Greece and China, teaching mainly sail-based activities. I now work for PGL in the south of France and have worked my way up the career ladder to become chief instructor at Mimosa, one of PGL’s largest Mediterranean beach resorts. I manage a team of 35 watersports instructors and three assistant managers and facilitate the running of 12 different activities.

How Hartpury helped to get me there

Hartpury provided me with all the training in both practical and academic skills I needed to lead me to where I am today.
