Outdoor Instructor with Woodrow High House

Closing date: 31 December 2021

About the role

Salary: £19,848 - £21,101 per annum | Annual Leave: 39 days | Hours: 42 pw | Term: Permanent or Seasonal Contracts

The Outdoor Instructor role is an excellent opportunity for an experienced candidate to join a passionate team based at a well established Outdoor Learning Centre in the heart of the Chilterns.

You will facilitate a wide range of activities to support the growth, development and education of young people and adults who visit us. You will have a passion for learning outside of the classroom and be dedicated to delivering that experience at Woodrow. You will deliver outdoor sessions such as low ropes, bush craft, high ropes, archery; sports sessions including cycling skills; as well as problem-solving activities, arts and craft, and environmental activities. Some essential qualifications are expected, others can be worked towards and will be supported by London Youth, as appropriate to your role.

Our commitment to anti-racism
In July 2020, we issued a statement committing to become an anti-racist organisation and to actively tackle racism. Since then, London Youth has worked with our staff and trustees to understand first the issues within our organisation, collaboratively developing a Theory of Change to define our areas of focus, approach and plan of action moving forward.

We have a Race Equality Action Stakeholder Group which is chaired by a London Youth member and trustee. This group includes representatives from across the organisation and oversees the implementation of our Race Equality Action Plan.

At the heart of youth work is the drive to level the playing field for all young Londoners to succeed, regardless of their backgrounds. Over two thirds of the young people we work with are from racialised communities and we know that without the opportunities which youth organisations provide, there would be limited experiences open to them.

London Youth embraces equality, diversity and inclusion. We are committed to the ongoing development of an organisation that values and represents a variety of backgrounds, perspectives and skills and welcome applications that reflect this.
