About Kingswood Activity Centres

When you work for Kingswood, you can enjoy all the fun of a Kingswood residential, every day!

We're on the lookout for inspirational and dedicated people to join our team of outdoor adventurers. With a range of seasonal and long term roles available, you can work directly with some of the 165,000 young people we welcome to our centres each year – on activities such as archery, bushcraft, caving and climbing.

We also have other jobs available from time to time including cooks, housekeeping and office based jobs.


Where you'll be working
We operate at nine fantastic activity centres in the UK and one in France - each set in stunning locations close to Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Sites of Special Scientific Interest:

Colomendy, Denbighshire, North Wales 
Dearne Valley, Doncaster, South Yorkshire
Dukeshouse Wood, Hexham, Northumberland
Grosvenor Hall, Ashford, Kent
Bembridge, Isle of Wight
Overstrand Hall, Cromer, North Norfolk

At these centres we welcome 5 to 17 year olds from schools and groups year-round for a range of exciting outdoor programmes packed with challenging and high-adrenaline activities and during the Easter and Summer holidays we welcome 8-17 year olds from all over the world to Kingswood Camps.  


Living and working on Centre

Most of our centre team not only work on centre but they live there too!

You will be an integral part of a lively and enthusiastic team who live and work together in a community atmosphere that thrives on friendship. You will meet like-minded people from all backgrounds and walks of life and make friendships that will remain with you forever. For many of our instructors it might be the first time living away from home and is a great opportunity to gain independence, learn life skills and build confidence.

Accommodation varies dependent on the centre from larger student halls type of residences to smaller houses. Accommodation is either centre-based or close by. There are staff common rooms with TV and other amenities to help you relax at the end of the day. Rooms are furnished and you will be required to share a room with colleagues. All of our centres have dining halls and should you choose to opt-in to our optional food scheme we will provide you with 3 meals a day, 7 days a week for a minimal charge.


Robust recruitment

We have a clear recruitment, induction and training strategy. We follow safer recruitment best practice and are bench-marked against national standards.All new staff complete safeguarding training during their induction, have a probationary review within the third month of employment and will then be observed and appraised at regular intervals throughout their period of employment.
