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 13 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 - Scotland team are recruiting for an enthusiastic outdoor professional who is 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 provide a breadth of adventurous activities to encourage individual and team learning opportunities over a number of core Princes Trust programmes. Areas such as confidence building, personal resilience and challenge, achieving goals and relevant pre-planned outcomes are the primary aim of activity which is being delivered. To support this, applicants would be expected to have experience of facilitating personal development and the ability to engage and inspire through adventurous activity; to clients who at times may display complex personal and or behavioural needs.

We are looking for people who hold a minimum of two the following National Governing Body Awards:

Summer Mountain Leader; Single Pitch Award; UKCC L2 Paddlesports and BC L2 Mountain Biking Award. Additional qualifications are considered desirable.

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 skill to deliver inspiring personal development focussed adventurous activity in a safe sustainable way please apply.

The Prince's Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. The successful applicant will be required to apply for an enhanced DBS check.

We prefer to hire people directly, but we do have a preferred supplier list for when we'd like a helping hand. We'll be in touch if we need you.

We reserve the right to change the closing date depending on the number of responses received. Please submit your application as soon as possible to ensure it is considered in the selection process. If you have a disability and can demonstrate that closing this post early would impact on your ability to submit an application in time, please contact our HR team on 0207 543 7444 or email to request arrangements for an application to be submitted within the original timeframe.
