OUTDOOR PURSUITS SPECIALIST
To start as soon as possible
This is an outstanding opportunity for an enthusiastic well-qualified Outdoor Pursuits and Mountain Specialist to join Hampton School’s highly successful Outdoor Pursuits team in the delivery of a wide range of activities from camping and Youth Hostelling trips in the UK to major expeditions around the world.
The successful applicant will hold a minimum of the Mountain Leader (Summer) Award, ideally be SPA or a Climbing Wall award holder and should have a good working knowledge of the Duke of Edinburgh’s award scheme.
Hampton is one of the country’s foremost independent schools and is rated 'exceptional' by the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) for pupils’ achievements and learning. Inspectors also praised the School for fostering a culture “in which the individual matters and everyone’s contribution is valued.” Equality, diversity and inclusion are fundamental to our ethos and the School has a thriving partnerships programme.
The School has its own salary scale and offers generous non-contractual benefits, well above the maintained sector, to attract high-calibre candidates. There is very strong commitment at Hampton to supporting the continuing professional development of colleagues.
Normal working hours are 8.30am – 4.30pm Monday to Friday, with the requirement to work weekends and school holiday periods to accompany expeditions. The role therefore requires flexibility and commitment.
The closing date for applications is Friday 10 December 2021 at 9am, although candidates are encouraged to apply as soon as possible. The School reserves the right to commence or complete the interview process at any time prior to the closing date.
