We're looking for an exceptionally talented and dynamic individual to help us develop young people through inspiring, adventurous and challenging outdoor learning programmes.

Could this be a role for you?

You'll lead, motivate and inspire a team of approximately 80 staff to deliver high quality personal development courses in one of the most inspiring locations in the UK.

This is a key and high-profile position within The Trust, with a responsibility of running two busy centres with an annual budget of around £3 million.

The two centres are separated by Ullswater Lake and are effectively run as a single centre, with instructors and support staff in common.

Both centres are extremely busy and are open for all but a few weeks of the year. Courses delivered at the centres vary in length from short week-end courses to the three week summer courses. Participants vary in age from 11 to 20 years of age and are drawn from The Trust’s three business streams – Schools and Colleges, Apprentices and Individuals.

Last year over 10,000 participants passed through the two centres and 48,000 activity days were delivered.
