About Robinwood Activity Centres

Robinwood Activity Centres is a leading provider of multi-activity residential courses for primary school groups in the North of England. We have two activity centres in Todmorden (West Yorkshire), one in Alston (Cumbria) and one in Wrexham, North Wales. Over 1100 schools a year attend our courses. School groups stay for three days and do a range of activities including climbing, canoeing, zip wire, archery, themed problem solving, indoor caving and leap of faith. Our aim is to make a really positive difference developing children.

Robinwood is very proud of its fantastic staff, as they are the reason schools return to us year after year. We have been in the Sunday Times 'Top 100 Companies to Work for' every year since 2014! We also hold the Investors in People Award, Investors in Customers Award and were previous winners of a National Training Award. We genuinely listen to our staff and they contribute many ideas which make a real difference to the development and improvement of the company.

We require group leaders to lead and develop groups of up to 13 children aged 8-11 years in the range of activities we offer. All staff start at the grassroots group leader level but as we only promote staff from within the company there are excellent opportunities for people with the right qualities to progress to assistant manager, deputy manager or centre manager.

Robinwood staff receive a comprehensive training package, a competitive salary, school holidays and great perks including a company profit bonus, development days and social events paid for by the company.

Starting salary for Group Leaders is £14k, increasing subsequently with time served and responsibility. Senior course leaders start on £17.5k and managers earn in the region of £27k to £50k.Robinwood takes work-life balance very seriously and staff work a four-day week.

Robinwood offers a rewarding lifestyle job but with great professional development opportunities. Apply now and become part of our award-winning team.
