The Prince's Trust is a youth charity that helps change young lives. We give practical and financial support, developing key workplace skills, such as confidence and motivation. We work with 11 to 30-year-olds who have struggled at school, have been in care, are long-term unemployed or have been in trouble with the law. We have helped more than 825,000 young people since 1976 and support 100 more each working day. More than three in four young people we helped last year moved into work, education or training. We are committed to equality and valuing diversity.

The Adventurous Activities Team in Scotland are recruiting for an enthusiastic Development Instructor based from our Glasgow Centre. The ideal candidate will be passionate about the benefits of outdoor experiences with a keen interest in facilitating personal development, which will make a difference in young people's lives.

Development Instructors deliver a wide variety of engaging adventurous activities to encourage individual and team learning opportunities over a number of core Princes Trust programmes. All activities have pre-planned outcomes which are the primary aim. Examples include confidence building, personal resilience and challenge and achieving goals.

Applicants are expected to have experience of facilitating personal and social development with young people. They should have the ability to engage and inspire using adventurous activities to help clients who at times may display complex personal and or behavioural needs.

We are looking for people who hold a minimum of two of the following National Governing Body Awards: Summer Mountain Leader; Single Pitch Award; BC L2 Paddle-sports and L2 Mountain Biking Award, First Aid qualification, D1+E driving licence.

Much of programme delivery takes place either in a residential or remote setting requiring evening/overnight supervision and group led self-catering, of which the development instructor would take a key role in supporting.

This position will require an enhanced PVG certificate, recognised up to date evidence of competence to deliver adventurous /residential activity and a willingness to continually develop skills required to remain professionally proficient.

If you have the desire and skills to deliver inspiring personal development focused adventurous activities for young people in a safe and engaging way, please apply.
