Raleigh International

Adventure Project Manager in Scotland

Build your Mountain Leader skills in the Western Highlands of Scotland, leading young volunteer teams on exciting trekking projects

Lead and support young people on exciting trek projects from Glenfinnan to Ben Nevis on Raleigh International’s UK volunteer programme – Re:Green. As an Adventure Project Manager, you need to be Mountain Leader assessed, and confident facilitating young people to develop their own leadship and teamwork skills. 

Raleigh International is a youth-driven organisation supporting a global movement of people to take action. Our projects on Re:Green engage young people aged 18-24 to create lasting change through conservation projects in Scotland's rainforest, whilst developing their skills and confidence through leadership trekking projects across the Western Highlands of Scotland.

What will I do?

  • Facilitate and inspire a diverse group of young volunteers to complete our challenging and remote trek projects, and build their leadership and teamwork skills in the process.
  • Use your outdoor leadership and training experience to support your team, encouraging them to lead and support each other to complete this together.
  • Gain insight into the running of sustainable development programmes and the practical challenges they encompass.
  • Receive training with your fellow Volunteer Managers in advance of your programme and during your first week before the volunteers arrive.

When can I go?

We are recruiting this role for our programmes across 2022, each placement lasting 5 weeks:

  • 5 Jun - 9 Jul

Benefits:

  • Expand your knowledge of sustainable development.
  • Experience living in a completely new and exciting environment.
  • Leave with friendships made with volunteers and volunteer managers from a diverse range of backgrounds and careers.

Costs and what is covered:

This is an unpaid voluntary position, with a required fundraising cost of £50. Given your specialist mountain leader training and skillset, this is significantly reduced from our other adult volunteer roles.
