You'll love working here because you'll join a tenured team invested in your growth and success. You’ll be supported through the initial onboarding and with ongoing on-the-job learning, and will have the opportunity to identify and spend time working on projects that are of the most interest to you. You'll also love working here because we hire smart, collaborative people who are passionate about the outdoors. Your colleagues will be people you love working with to creatively solve problems, and who you’ll want to adventure with on the weekends. In fact - you may already be adventuring with our staff! You'll often find team members volunteering to lead trips and learning new skills by taking courses across our branches (a free perk of working here). Cultivating an inclusive staff is central to our focus on equity and belonging, and helps our colleagues see how their unique contributions to our mission are valued. We can only achieve our mission by hiring and engaging a diverse workforce that reflects the communities we currently serve, and wish to serve. In addition to the requirements in our postings, we recognize that people come with talent and experiences outside of work. We're looking for a diversity of experience and skills combined with passion for the outdoors, whether you consider yourself a novice or an expert. Please apply – we’d love to hear from you.
