Outdoor Jobs

Would you like to spend your summer working outside? We are looking for enthusiastic Camp Leaders, Tribe Leaders, Chefs, Estate Managers and Estate Logistic Assistants to help us run residential school trips, at 7 woodland centres across the UK. Please take a look at our roles below, and apply online. We provide full training so no experience is required. We are however passionate about recruiting people with a genuine interest in inspiring children, and who will always go the extra mile to make their trip a success.

Tribe Leader

This role is a hugely rewarding, seasonal position and can be a stepping stone to one of our more advanced, permanent roles. You will be responsible for one of our 'tribes' of 10-15 children on one of our camps, ensuring that our high level of pastoral care is maintained. You will also be looking after your tribe during the many activities they will be doing during their stay with us. Activities range from wild swimming, archery and tree climbing to traditional bushcraft skills like fire lighting and shelter building.

This is one of our most important roles, and nearly everyone in the current bushcraft team has worked in this role. Our Tribe Leaders are key to The Bushcraft Company, providing the best care and instruction in our industry. No previous experience is required, as all applicants will complete in-house training and our mentoring scheme before working on one of our camps. However, you do need plenty of enthusiasm and a sense of fun.

Camp Leader

We are looking for hardworking, enthusiastic individuals with a passion for working with children, as well as a love of the outdoors. Applicants should be looking to progress in the outdoor education industry. The role involves the management of a team of Tribe Leaders and a Field Cook, as well as the day-to-day responsibilities of running a residential camp of up to 60 school children plus teachers. This is a demanding but hugely rewarding role.

You do not necessarily need to come from an outdoor education background, or indeed a bushcraft background (we employ many ex-teachers but there is no typical ‘sort of person’), as you will complete extensive in-house training, and mentoring before you work on a course. However, you do need to want to be part of a team whose aim is not simply to give students a taste of adventure, but to inspire a lifetime of it.

Field Cook

If you love being outdoors, and introducing children to food, then this is the ideal job for you – and the great news is, you will also be trained as a Tribe Leader. As a Bushcraft Field Cook you will be responsible for providing all meals, snacks and hot drinks on one of our camps. We are looking for people  who have the ability to prepare fresh and tasty food in an outdoor environment. You will have gas to cook on, although a lot of our meals are cooked over open fires. See one of our food and accommodation  sections to find out more about how we operate. Within this role, you will be reporting to the Camp Leader. Although catering experience is preferable, it is not essential as full training and food hygiene certification will be provided.

  • Movement of all inbound and outbound food and equipment

Estate Manager

Our estate managers are responsible for the running of our woodland centres. They are also responsible for the students, teachers and The Bushcraft Company team on site, as well as our key stakeholders within the estate. Estate managers communicate directly with Head Office, and will report on all areas of estate running.

A key part of this role is to ensure that the Bushcraft Company team meets all standards, whether it’s course delivery, food, or camp aesthetics. The role requires management of a large team, extensive kit and equipment and delivery of exceptional camps; we are therefore looking for someone with management experience.
