We know there is someone out there who loves the outdoors, who wants to impact youth for good and who has a passion to lead and inspire a team to create life-changing experiences.
This person will value safety, good practice and undertake every challenge with a growth mind-set. The successful applicant will need to be a person with energy to lead the development and execution of our programmes while growing the team they have around them.
If you have worked in a Christian camping organisation before or have experience in leading outdoor activities then you will appreciate the challenges and opportunities involved. With a team of experienced instructors to lead and support, there is much to do. Your powers of persuasion, delegation and organisational skills will be tested. Even with a clear plan, anything can happen. We will come to rely on your calm and grounded approach to problem-solving and health & safety expertise to troubleshoot whatever comes up.
As a team leader, you will be a clear communicator providing insightful direction and pastoral care to the team and value the input of others. All forms of communications will be a natural strength of your skillset, whether it be as the ‘face' of the event, preparing programme reports or building relationships with our guests, volunteers, and our wider community.
At Totara Springs Christian Centre (TSCC), we believe in practically demonstrating the love and compassion of Jesus through providing excellence in everything that we do. Our gifted and motivated team has the privilege of creating unforgettable memories for groups of people all year round.
You will contribute to the crafting of the present and future culture of our amazing organisation and sharing God's love. This is an opportunity to lead and inspire our instructors and hosting Team at Totara Springs, a place where life-changing experiences happen every day.
Totara Springs Christian Centre has guests of all ages who travel from afar to enjoy our beautiful setting and outstanding hospitality.
