EDUCATORS WHO CHALLENGE AND IMPEL
PARTICIPANTS TO PERFORM
The Outward Bound experience would be nothing without our team members. Our trainers and outdoor instructors have the technical skills, maturity and experience to both support and challenge our participants during their Outward Bound experience.
Outward Bound Netherlands currently employs more than 30 members of staff, making us one of the largest professional outdoor experiential training providers in The Netherlands. Our instructors are highly trained, facilitators and coaches, dedicated and committed to transforming the lives of the people with whom they work, but they are only one part of the organisation, and are dependent on the support of our fantastic office administration and technical team. As we grow steadily year on year, jobs with us, either as instructors or in the support team are advertised via our social media platforms.
