Children’s Activity Group Leader

Job description

Robinwood Group Leaders work with groups of 8 to 11 year old children giving them a fantastic opportunity to experience a range of activities which they wouldn't normally have the chance to experience in the classroom environment.

We require Group Leaders to lead and develop groups of children in a variety of adventurous and team-building activities including climbing, canoeing, zip wire, archery, themed problem solving and indoor caving at our three activity centres in Todmorden (West Yorkshire), Alston (Cumbria) and our newest centre in Wrexham, North Wales.

Everyone starts work at the Group Leader level but as Robinwood only promote staff from within the company, there are excellent opportunities for career development for the best staff at all levels right up to senior management.

More details about Robinwood and the jobs available can be found on the Robinwood Careers website.

What we are looking for

We welcome applications from positive, enthusiastic people who have some experience (paid or voluntary) working with children. We run a values-based selection procedure so your employment history is less important to us than your ethos and personality.


Qualifications in our activities are not necessary as we provide all training. If you're enthusiastic and fun, have an ability to relate to 8-11 year olds and tell a good story, you could be the person for us.
