Meet The Team! - Adventure Parc Snowdonia

Meet: Maddie!

You’ll likely find Maddie, one of our awesome lifeguards, encouraging and helping people around the shores of the lagoon here in Snowdonia! Our lifeguard team are the ones keeping you safe in the water at all times. Our friendly, fun-loving team are the all-round good guys that share a passion for surfing and spending time outdoors (whatever the weather)!

Like many of us here, Maddie has huge appreciation for the ocean, conservation and surfing. Maddie is currently studying Marine Biology at Bangor University, with specific interest in seaweed mari-culture and its uses against climate change! Something that we are fully behind, it’s great to share views and values with our team and visitors and adventurer’s around sustainability and conservation of our natural environment – with all aspects of our Parc being truly #InspiredByNature since 2015!

Favourite Wave? Advanced North during staff sessions, awesome to hangout and share waves after work! 

Weapon of choice? keeping it fun with a 7′ foamie!

Relaxation space? Working from the Surfside Hub with waves rhythmically rolling past from the huge viewing windows.

“Travel permitting, I am due to be travelling to the Seychelles for a research project, focusing on the conservation of mangrove forests on the islands. These plants form dense barriers in the intertidal zone, creating nursery grounds for lemon sharks and turtles, among other organisms, and contribute greatly to coastal defences and carbon capture!

Working at APS has given me the opportunity to meet so many interesting people, in an environment that fully supports me as a person and my studies. It is great to have such an amazing facility on our doorstep and watch people develop their surfing and confidence in the water, as well as progressing with my own surfing quicker than I ever imagined. This is definitely somewhere where work doesn’t feel like work – always the best kind of place.”

We’re always on the lookout for great people to join our team across our departments. Want to be part of the adventure? Take a look at our vacancies!
