Climber on a bouldering wall

Join our team of climbing instructors

We're looking for enthusiastic, energetic and experienced climbing instructors to join our team.

We are looking for highly motivated instructors with a real passion for sport to deliver a variety of instruction activities and play a key part in ensuring the smooth running of the climbing spaces on a daily basis.

You will play a role in enhancing the University’s reputation for sport, and establish the University as one of the leading modern universities for sport within the HE sector. You will also ensure the role is delivered in line with our vision, mission and values at all times. 

These positions will work approximately 13 hours/week on a 2 week rota.

Our Roped Climbing Wall measures 10.0 metres wide x 10.85 metres high and incorporates a range of vertical and moderately overhanging routes that make best use of the limited space within the atrium. 

The overhang is limited by the proximity of the staircase in front of the climbing wall, however within the constraints that this creates our design of the wall makes best use of the space to appeal to climbers across a wide range of abilities.

The Climbing wall includes: 

  • Eight auto-belays
  • Lead climb
  • Bouldering Wall
  • Macro features

Instructors will ensure the climbing wall is well used and maintained to a high standard; offer a range of exciting and challenging routes to climbers within a friendly and welcoming environment; provide instruction, supervision and advice to individual and group climbers as required.
