Redpoint Bristol is recruiting!

At Redpoint Bristol we're excited to continue expanding our team to meet the growing demand for instructed sessions and the number of independent climbers using the centre. As a growing business, it's the perfect time to become part of our community.

As part of this expansion we are able to offer the ongoing opportunity for new instructors to join our experienced and friendly team.

We are passionate about supporting our staff to develop their skills and qualifications and providing opportunities for progression within the company. With this in mind, we pay for all staff training and encourage staff to continue their professional development by getting involved in other aspects of the business where appropriate - such as more advanced coaching, route setting, equipment checks, bookings etc.

Further down the line, there is also the potential to progress into a full time Duty Manager position. We strive to reflect our commitment to staff progression by recruiting Duty Managers from within our existing team of instructors.

In addition to taking on a new All-Rounder (instructor/receptionist), we also have availability for qualified freelance instructors to join our team.

See below for more info on the different roles and how to apply.
