Climbing Coordinator

Do you have an enthusiasm for developing climbing at Leeds? Do you have a passion for the great outdoors? Do you have excellent communication skills with the ability to build strong business relationships and networks?

The University of Leeds has a new strategy for sport which articulates our aim of becoming the leading provider of University sport in the UK. Through this strategy we are committed to ensuring we provide opportunities for our students, staff and members of the local community to develop their skills and broaden their horizons.

You will be responsible for the day-to-day operation of our climbing wall and related equipment. This will involve managing bookings, dealing with customers and other staff members and promoting climbing as a sport at the University.

You will work with a range of different internal and external stakeholders including colleagues across Commercial and Campus Support Services and Leeds University Union

Your working week will be based predominately at The Edge which is on the University of Leeds campus, however there maybe opportunities to work at our outdoor centres or at outdoor climbing venues across Yorkshire.

This is a zero-hours role working flexibly to assist in the delivery of our climbing objectives for the University. This role would fit alongside other part-time work and reasonable adjustments can be made to accommodate those working elsewhere or with other commitments.
