Woodrow High House are seeking experienced outdoor professionals to join our successful team.
Our Instructor roles offer a great opportunity for outdoor instructors with some experience to take on further responsibility and develop their skills.
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 include outdoor sessions such as low ropes and orienteering, high ropes, archery, problem-solving activities, sports including cycling, 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.
As an Instructor, we expect you to come with experience of running an excellent activity session. We are looking for bright, proactive and dependable instructors to join our team over peak periods.
As a Lead Instructor, you will be asked to perform ‘Course Director’ duties, acting as the supervisory point of contact for residential groups, although always with the support of senior management, as well as having the opportunity to take on areas of responsibility and make a real and lasting difference towards centre operations. You will get the chance to have a go at staffing and programming as part of your training, preparing you for more senior roles in future.
We are keen to offer personal development opportunities and as such encourage participation in relevant training courses both internal and external.
