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". There are different length contracts on offer, and this year 15 staff extended their contracts until 26th November.

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.
