About us!

Do you want to work in the heart of the Eden valley, with the Dales, Howgils and Lakes right on your doorstep?

Mad about Mountains still remains an independent outdoor company with two stores and a great online presence. 

We are a close team of climbers, walkers, runners and mountaineers who are all mad about the mountains and outdoors.  With over 30 years outdoor experience we pride ourselves in not only supplying great kit but the best advice and support to our customers.  

Within our Kirkby Stephen shop we have "The bothy" , a relaxed dog friendly cafe which gives customers time to relax while deciding on the best kit to buy.

Our brand range is always increasing and we have exciting plans to expand the business over the next few years.  

Now is the time to join our team!

The role!

We are looking for new team members, one full time and one part time. A love of the outdoors and outdoor kit is essential.  

These roles are mainly customer facing roles so great customer service is required with a happy outlook and willingness to help.

You will be required to fit boots, rucksacks and advise on outdoor clothing and equipment in store and over the phone although training will be given on this.

You will need to be able to work independently and also as an active team member.

Computer and number skills will be essential but again training will be given.

Hours will be five days a week or three days a week, these will include weekends and bank holidays but that will give you days during the week off to get outdoors when it's quieter.

Why work for us!

These roles are based in the lovely town of Kirkby Stephen at the foot of the nine standards and on the coast to coast route it attracts lots of outdoor enthusiasts! 

You will receive a staff discount and be given opportunities to test/review kit!

We are a friendly forward thinking team of like minded people!

You will finish at 5pm so there is still time to get outside after work!

What's the rate of pay?

Would be good for people to know before they apply and interview. Would save everyone some hassle.
