Big Rock Climbing Centre is an exciting new development in Milton Keynes that will be opening in July 2010. The centre is being set up as a collaboration between The Beacon Climbing Centre in N Wales and two local climbers. Initially the centre will have 1,400sqm of climbing with a mix of roped climbing, bouldering & group climbing areas. It is our intention to reach out to as many different users as possible and as such we will have:

• Plenty of climbing for all abilities
• Regular route setting
• Full range of courses
• Café & shop
• Lectures
• Masterclasses

We are currently looking for suitable individuals to form the centre’s management team which we anticipate will comprise a manager and two deputy managers who, between them, will have full responsibility for the day to day running of the centre. The following attributes are considered essential for these posts:

• Dynamic & enthusiastic with excellent attention to detail
• Genuine interest in climbing
• Ability to manage & inspire a team of Centre Assistants, instructors & route setters
• Good understanding of the way modern climbing walls operate
• Willingness to work occasional weekend & evening shifts

Other important attributes for various members of the management team would include:

• Strong instructional background possibly including CWA & CWLA providership
• Good understanding of the health & safety issues affecting climbing walls
• Route setting experience
• Marketing skills
• Computer literacy including some graphic design
• Book keeping experience

This is a fantastic opportunity to work in a challenging but fun environment with the possibility of having a real impact on the future of the business. We will be offering a competitive salary of £25-30,000 based on experience.
