The Somerset Outdoor and residential Learning Service (SORLS) are looking for a Seasonal instructor to work in their busy and hardworking team at Kilve Court.

About the job

At Kilve Court we enable young people to discover what they can do – not what they can’t. Every child is encouraged to imagine, discover and achieve, and our fantastic instructors are the people who make this happen. We are driven by a passion for residential outdoor learning where life lessons are learnt, and memories will be cherished. We want more amazing people to join our team.

At least one year working in the outdoors with young people.

In-house experience of ‘onsite’ activities (such as low ropes) and/or 2 NGBs (such as GNAS, Walking Lowland Leader or Climbing Wall Award).

We offer a comprehensive CPD support package and funding is available for training. The role will involve working evenings, overnights and weekends.

We are proud to offer an environment that is supportive and rewarding, working as part of a team who are passionate about the work they do. We offer great training and development opportunities, with supportive management. We offer an excellent benefits package to all of our employees including:

A Local Government Pension Scheme.

Discounted lease car via salary sacrifice scheme and options for discounts on petrol or diesel.

My Staff Shop offering discounts in shops, online shopping, restaurants, cinema tickets, insurance benefits and so forth.

A Flexible Benefits Scheme via salary sacrifice to obtain a cycle for work, childcare vouchers, additional annual leave, computers, mobile phones and health screening.

Generous annual leave and flexible working arrangements.

Staff discounts in gyms.

Employee Assistance and support offering a variety of employee wellbeing services to support a healthy work/life balance and lifestyle.

Optional pension enhancement through our Additional Voluntary Contribution scheme.

Enhanced DBS with Children's Barred List required.
