Wilderness Scotland is seeking guides to deliver experiential travel in Scotland for our clients. To be an experiential guide, you do not need to have an NGB qualification (but great if you do) as any such activities would be delivered in tandem with a qualified guide. You may currently hold a formal guiding qualification (such as being a Blue Badge or Green Badge guide) or you may simply have gained experience working in the sector. You will need to hold a valid first aid qualification. You will need a curious mind which thrives on seeking out interesting new experiences and encounters for our clients.
Our experiential guides will lead small groups of clients around Scotland, sharing their passion for the destination. As well as being knowledgable with regards to Scotland’s history, heritage and culture, you will introduce our clients to Scotland’s nature through various experiences designed by our team. These are much more than regular sightseeing trips – we want to connect our clients to Scotland’s natural and cultural heritage and your role is crucial in achieving this aim. Therefore, you must be able to demonstrate a great love of and knowledge of Scotland’s natural environment.
Vitally important is the ability to demonstrate great familiarity with many areas of Scotland. Knowledge of Scottish history, culture, environment, geology and geography is also important to us. Of course, we aim to provide our clients with the best possible experience, so our guides must take pride in their work and have a natural flair for customer care and hospitality.
Such high standards mean that we are unable to offer work to guides who have not worked in Scotland before or who have just graduated from a tourism degree but lack guiding experience in the field.
If, however, you have the knowledge, character and experience to work for Wilderness Scotland, we would love to hear from you and can offer you an excellent wage, good working conditions and the opportunity to lead superb trips in some of the most beautiful wilderness regions of Scotland.
While we have a lot of fun at Wilderness Scotland, our team is 100% focused on delivering 5-star world-class client experiences. As such, the successful guide will bring a professional and high-energy approach with an unwavering focus in all aspects of the client travel experience.
