Description

As an Outdoor Instructor, you will facilitate a wide range of activities to support the growth, development and education of the children, young people and adults who visit us.

Activities you will deliver include outdoor sessions such as low ropes, bush craft, orienteering, high ropes, archery; sports sessions including cycling skills; as well as problem-solving activities, arts and craft, and environmental activities. In addition, part of your role will require that you take on the management and development of elements of our programme – helping to develop and improve existing sessions as well as considering the scope for new ones.

We expect you to come with hands-on experience of running excellent outdoor activity sessions and as such are able to hit the ground running. The Outdoor Instructor role offers an excellent opportunity for outdoor instructors to take on additional responsibility and further develop their skills. Once you are established in the role, you will perform ‘Course Director’ duties, acting as the supervisory point of contact for residential groups, although always with the support of senior management. You will have the opportunity to make a real and lasting difference towards centre operations, including having a go at staffing and programming as part of your training, preparing you for more senior roles in future.
