Outstanding opportunity for an enthusiastic well-qualified Outdoor Pursuits Specialist to join Hampton School's highly successful Outdoor Pursuits team in the delivery of a wide range of activities from camping and Youth Hostelling trips in the UK to major expeditions around the world.

Hampton is one of the country's foremost independent schools and is rated 'exceptional' by the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) for pupils' achievements and learning. Inspectors also praised the School for fostering a culture "in which the individual matters and everyone's contribution is valued." Equality, diversity and inclusion are fundamental to our ethos and the School has a thriving partnerships programme.

The School has its own salary scale and offers generous non-contractual benefits, well above the maintained sector, to attract high-calibre candidates.  There is very strong commitment at Hampton to supporting the continuing professional development of colleagues.

Normal working hours are 8.30am – 4.30pm Monday to Friday, with the requirement to work weekends and school holiday periods to accompany expeditions. The role therefore requires flexibility and commitment.
