Wilderness Scotland is always keen to hear from guides who can demonstrate great knowledge and passion for Scotland and/or northern England. Our guiding team have all been active in the outdoors in Scotland and or northern England for many years. Some of them hold multiple NGB qualifications while others specialise in a single activity. However, we view paper qualifications as only the first step towards becoming a Wilderness Scotland guide.
More important is the ability to demonstrate great familiarity with many areas of Scotland and/or northern England. Knowledge of Scottish/English 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 instructors who have not worked in Scotland or northern England before or who have just graduated with an adventure tourism degree.
We have grown considerably over the years and with a growing amount of trips requiring guides each season we are now looking for guides to commit to guiding on a minimum of 4 weeks per season. We would love you to work more than this and if this is of interest to you we can work together to become a Core Guide (8+ weeks). There are benefits to becoming a Core Guide that can be discussed at the interview stage.
As much as this will give you a good number of weeks with us it also will help in feeling more part of the team here. It is really important to us for everyone involved in Wilderness Scotland to feel part of being one team; sweeping the floor and sweating the small stuff together to provide amazing experiences.
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 and northern England.
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.
