Freelance Expedition Leaders/Outdoor Instructors
Adventure Expeditions are looking to expand their team of freelance instructors thanks to significant new work across a variety of DofE expedition programmes. We are a leading provider of DofE and private expeditions in the UK and abroad and through our sister company, Adventure Expertise, offer skills courses & guiding in summer and winter, NGB courses and outdoor activity courses. Successful applicants with the relevant skills would have the opportunity to work on a variety of these programmes. Our offices and training base are in Hathersage, in the Peak District, so ideally candidates would be local to here and also willing to travel. Instructors who live elsewhere and are willing to travel should also apply if interested (50% of our freelance team live outside the Peak District and our work is UK wide). 2020 Inductions will take place in the Peak District on November the 8th and December the 10th.
The majority of work we have available over the coming year will be on DofE programmes so we are looking for minimum qualifications of ML, 1st Aid, DBS and experience of working on DofE programmes (DofE Assessor very desirable). We are also looking for people with the RCI for local climbing days and MCI/WMCI holders & IML’s interested in work on skills courses, guiding, NGB’s and more technical work/expeditions overseas.
PAY: Our standard rate for all DofE work in 2019 is £140/day (plus travel for DofE work at 12.5p/mile to and from your home address). Work on more technical courses is often paid at a higher rate e.g. £160/day on winter programmes/NGB’s.
RESPONSE PROCESS: Please contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org, attaching an up to date CV and I’ll get back to you with details of our application/induction process. Please include in the email a summary of the sort of work you’re interested in and your availability, e.g. Full-time freelance or have other work commitments to work around.
CLOSING DATE: 16/11/2019
