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.
We are looking for someone with drive and determination who can grow our client-base and revenue. You will seek new and repeat business and manage each client account through to delivery of the service. Our clients are 95% professionals in schools youth and corporate organisations and 5% of families.
