Suitable candidates should have:

· Adventurous Activity experience and a technical understanding of safety management systems and national governing body guidelines that ensure safe delivery of adventurous activities

· A minimum of 4 NGB coaching qualifications preferably including Mountain Leader with RCI or Paddle Sports coach at Level 2.

· Experience or interest in integrating adventurous activities in to wider personal development or outdoor learning programmes

· Experience of dealing with a range of challenging behaviours and complex needs.

· Possess a strategic vision for developing, delivering and growing adventurous activity provision at the Centre.

· Cultural sensitivity and commitment to Lambourne End's Equal Opportunities Policy
