Leaders in Outdoor Experiential Learning



BAC is currently looking for qualified part-time Outdoor Instructors.

As part of our continued development we are seeking to recruit qualified outdoor activity instructors on a part time basis. You will be responsible for assisting with the delivery of personal development activities using the unique Belfast Adventure Learning Park, which boasts Ireland’s only artificial cave, a high ropes course and climbing facility. In addition BAC offers canoeing and kayaking at its boat house along with orienteering, archery and mountain biking in the 1,000 acre plus Barnett’s Demesne.  The role will also support the delivery of the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award and provide assistance and leadership across the centre’s activities. It will also involve working off site in the mountains and on the rivers and lakes of Northern Ireland and beyond. In 2012 BAC will also announce the development of a 50 bed residential Centre. This is a dynamic and high energy role in a very special team.

Minimum requirements for candidates are:

·         To hold a relevant National Governing Body (NGB) Award

·         To have experience working with a range of client groups in the outdoor environment.

·         To hold a clean driving license with experience of driving minibuses

·         To hold a current first aid certificate.

Volunteer Opportunities:

Do you hold a valid PSV or D1 driving license and do you have experience in driving minibuses?

If so we need your help transporting our youth groups and disabled clients from Belfast Activity Centre to locations such as the Mournes.

Could you donate some of your time to deserving youth from Belfast?

If so please get in contact with trevor.kilpatrick@belfastactivitycentre.com or fiona.nugent@belfastactivitycentre.com or give any of us a call here at the BAC office.

We also have many opportunities for those of you who can’t drive a mini bus! Come to BAC and give the youth of Belfast a helping hand.
