Please Register as a New User in order to reply to this topic.

Our lovely Marketing Manager (Katie) is going on Maternity Leave in early September and we need someone to pick up the baton while she is away. Katie has done a lot of work preparing us for a busy winter with large events and exciting announcements to be broadcast alongside the day to day communications with our community. If you are looking for experience working in a creative, adventurous and friendly environment then this could be the perfect role.

About us 

We opened Redpoint in 2013 as a passionate group of climbers who wanted to pass on this love to those in Bristol and the surrounding area. Although climbing remains our specialist product, we have since expanded into another two major venues and diversified the activities we offer enabling the whole family to take part. Each centre also has a cafe which serves fresh and local food and drinks to our whole range of customers, this helps us to compliment the community feel of our centres which is so important to us.

Why work for us?

This is an opportunity to bring your expertise and take ownership of a project which will be varied and exciting.

We devote a lot of time and care to supporting our staff and providing opportunities whenever we can, creating an environment which is enjoyable to both work and play - you would be joining the family!
