Purpose of appointment 

If you are passionate about creating amazing, memorable opportunities for young people to experience the Christian faith in a residential setting, this role may be for you! We are looking for somebody to help tie together all of the wonderful experiences that our guests encounter while staying at Alltnacriche. You will be the main point of contact for most groups, from arrival to departure, ensuring quality throughout their stay. You will also take a leading role in the delivery of our own ministry programmes and activities, modelling quality sessions for colleagues to aspire to.

At Alltnacriche we host a variety of different groups through a busy season, usually from late February through to November. These groups range from fully catered school residentials through to self-catered weekends and summer holiday groups. We regularly deliver a programme of adventurous activities to our guests, providing them with opportunities to explore the Christian faith in the outdoors in a way that fits with the aims of their visit.

You will work closely with the Ministry Development Co-ordinator to ensure that the needs of our guests are catered for to a very high standard. You will take the lead in creating a safe and welcoming environment for our guests, ensuring that communications flow through the Alltnacriche team to the right people. As part of a team you will deliver outdoor activities and will receive appropriate training to be able to do this. You will also develop and deliver ministry programmes, such as curriculum based RME material to schools residentials and Christian talks to churches and youth groups. There are opportunities to explore the Christian faith with young people, other times we are facilitating others to do that.
