Social Media Content Creator Jobs

© Ariana Tudor

A fantastic opportunity has arisen at Mile End Climbing Wall for a Social Media Content Creator.

Mile End Climbing Wall (MECW) is the trading name of the charity Development through Challenge (DtC).

Development through Challenge started life as a charity called North London Rescue Commando (NLRC), set up when London was at threat of flood. They moved to the current site from North London, where they had started as a small water sports centre. In the mid-1980s a change in focus led to the formation of Mile End Climbing Wall. It became the climbing wall in London and one of the first climbing walls in England. In 1997 NLRC changed its name to Development through Challenge.

Since then, we have been providing East London and UK climbing communities with high quality climbing and associated facilities that are available to everyone regardless of ability to pay, physical ability, or skill-level. We organise training and challenges that improve people's wellbeing.
