Role

This is a really exciting time to join Girlguiding. We are on a mission to amplify the voices of girls and young women, so they can champion change in their own lives and the wider world; to build strong partnerships that can increase our reach and impact; and to increase the support we offer our amazing adult volunteers who deliver incredible experiences to young people across the UK every week. We have recently agreed our 2020+ strategy and begun a process of significant change: transforming the organisation so it can meet the challenges of the future by putting young people and volunteers at the heart of our organisation.

Let fun and adventure be at the heart of your everyday!

We are currently recruiting Activity Instructors for our national Activity Centres based in West Sussex and Hampshire.

As a Girlguiding Activity Instructor you will put fun and adventure at the heart of your delivery, providing effective leadership and instruction to a variety of guest, and engaging with them through exciting and adventurous sessions! These sessions provide a hands-on taster experience and includes everything from canoeing and kayaking to rock climbing and zip wire!

Not only will you lead these exciting and adventure-filled sessions, you will also be involved in delivering a number of exciting national events – and to top it all off, you will  start by taking part in an extensive training programme that gives you access to industry recognised qualifications!

Girlguiding values the differences that a diverse workforce brings and is committed to inclusivity, and to employing and supporting a diverse workforce. Girlguiding is proud to be part of the Stonewall Diversity Champions programme, a member of the Business Disability Forum, and a member of Time to Change.
