The ideal candidate will have at least one seasons experience of working in the outdoor sector with recognised National Governing Body qualifications in at least two of the activities offered at our sites.
Our instructors are passionate, both about the outdoor sector and working for Girlguiding. They represent the public face of Girlguiding, ensuring that all activities are conducted in a manner which promotes and enhances the organisation’s safeguarding policies, images and reputation, ultimately ensuring that participants have a safe and enjoyable experience with us so that they want to visit again.
