Pivotal position. Leadership role. Progressive career path.

We believe that nothing prepares kids for real life like the real world. And that bumps to the body and bruises to the ego early on in life make them stronger and harder to break later.

As Australia’s most established outdoor education provider, we’ve not just got years of experience; we’re prepared for everything the future’s yet to bring. We partner with schools to complement and enhance curriculum. Bring theory to life in the real world and provide experiences in some of the world’s most diverse and beautiful natural environments.

We employ 450+ staff. All committed to creating an inclusive, progressive, and supportive workplace. Wherever in Australia that may be.

The pivotal role of Program Coordinator involves working in a close knit and highly effective team. It provides an opportunity to influence the learning and development of thousands of young people each year and will provide successful applicants with an opportunity for a dynamic and highly rewarding role in a leading education sector organisation.

The Program Coordinator Role requires strong leadership and management skills, expert understanding of contemporary Outdoor Education and an enthusiastic and dynamic approach to working in a fast-paced environment. The ability to balance client requirements along with organisational needs will be critical to this role.
