Working at Eskdale
You'll work exclusively with apprentices and graduates from all across the UK. From helping first year cybersecurity apprentices get to grips with workplace behaviours to supporting graduates in the aerospace industry to recognise how their values as a leader influence others. Here are some examples of the types of programmes you will be designing and delivering to help young people successfully transition into the early stages of their careers.
This is a role that requires belief in the potential of young people, the thoughtful curiosity to coach, the patience to facilitate reflection and the emotional intelligence to find the right balance of challenge and support for each apprentice or graduate.
You'll need to facilitate quality learning and development programmes in wild environments - in gorges, on rivers and lakes, whilst wild camping or perched atop crags in the Eskdale valley.
Eskdale is an energetic and engaging workplace. Our trainers are encouraged to be creative and authentic in their style, embrace differences and operate with high levels of autonomy in our wild places, enabling participants to get the most out of themselves.
Due to the work patterns of programmes, Eskdale attracts staff from across Cumbria and beyond. Group Trainers utilise time back in lieu to balance periods at work and at home, and on average (Sept 2021 – Sept 2022) full time staff enjoyed just 178 days at work, none of which included weekends. The centre offers various accommodation options on an ad hoc basis to support staff while they are at work.
PS - if this looks interesting, but there’s a little voice talking you out of applying, we’ll let you into a little secret: there’s no such thing as a perfect candidate. We’re all on this learning journey together at Outward Bound. However you identify, if you think this is a role you could excel in and more importantly you’d be excited to do – then please get in touch.
