In January we will open one of the largest bouldering centers in the country two stops north of Liverpool Central Station. We will be creating a buzzing and exciting bouldering environment catering for all abilities with loads of angles from slabs to a 7m roof and everything in between. We need people who are fully psyched for bouldering and keen to be part of a small, committed team who will help create the best indoor bouldering environment for our customers.

You will have high standards of professionalism and want to be an active part of creating a brilliant working environment for yourself. You will enjoy talking to other climbers and have a non-judgmental approach to their perspective on climbing. We aim to reward this kind of person with a managerial team where your input is a key part of how we develop the centre.

We will be holding interviews from November 29th until December 5th.
