Join us as a Lead Instructor

Lead Instructor (Youlbury)

Scouts is an equal opportunity employer. We're committed to diversity and actively seeking applicants from a wide range of backgrounds, in particular, Black, Asian and ethnic minority communities.

Will you be our next Lead Instructor?

Responsible to: Adventure Experience Manager

Department: Scout Adventures

Base Location: Youlbury, Oxfordshire (Live-in Role)

Term: Permanent

Salary: £23,090 per annum Band C Level 3

Hours: 40 hours per week

Line Management Responsibility: Volunteers, Seasonal and Apprentice Instructors

Lead Instructors are responsible for ensuring the smooth operation of our centres – line managing teams of instructors, delivering training, monitoring performance and safety, and working as the Duty Manager on a weekly rota.

The first 6 months of this role will be an induction period –you will split your time between training, shadowing the existing senior team, and delivering adventures to groups. In this period you will regularly need to travel and spend several days away from your home centre to attend and deliver training courses.

We believe that the ability to lead, inspire and organise others is the most important skill a Lead instructor can have. If you are a natural leader, if you’re great at planning, and if you are already an experienced instructor who has worked with a range of groups and activities then this is the role for you.
