Lead Instructor

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.

Here’s what you can expect to be doing

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

A few things about you

We are looking for a lead instructor with the following experience:

  • At least two years working in the outdoors with young people.
  • In-house experience of ‘onsite’ activities (such as low ropes) and 2 NGBs (such as GNAS, Walking Lowland Leader or Climbing Wall Award).

You will join our small team of lead instructors who support our wider team of instructors, to ensure all elements off our centres are operating effectively and giving young people staying with us the best experience possible. This includes leading on training sessions, regular kit checks and daily customer relationships.
