Description:
Volunteer instructors x 8

YMCA Lakeside is a very busy and highly respected Outdoor Adventure and Education Residential Centre. We are known for delivering inspirational, exciting and challenging outdoor adventures for personal and social development. We are looking for great staff to join our team, take on real responsibility and help our young clients flourish.

Our clients include schools, colleges, youth-groups, corporate and family, which gives you a great opportunity to learn and develop, broaden your instructional skills and deepen your knowledge and practice of "Learning Outside the Classroom". Some of our Volunteers gain enough experience and qualifications to convert to a full paid instructors role part way through the season, so it’s a great way to progress your career.

Based in the southern Lake District on the edge of Windermere with ½ mile of shoreline we are ideally placed for Sailing and Paddle-sports. Climbing is served by our three climbing crags which together with many of our other activities are based in the 450 acres of woodland surrounding us. For bigger adventures, and in your own time too, there are the Mountains, Crags, Caves, Rivers and Lakes all around us.

Volunteer instructors x 8 (Seasonal Monday 2nd April – 28th September 2018)
This is designed for those of you who do not have sufficient qualifications and or experience yet. We offer you the chance to join our team and learn on the job. If you gain the NGBs and demonstrate the skills during the season we will upgrade you to an Instructor contract.

Extended volunteering opportunities into the autumn are usually available. We find that volunteers who are serious about a career in the outdoors and ready to make the best of all the opportunities available get the most from this programme. As well as uniform, full training and induction, meals and accommodation we give you £50 a week towards your expenses.

These positions are allocated on the successful completion of application and interview process and will be closed once the required number has been achieved, so don’t delay; get your application in today!
