Head of Centre

Medina Valley Centre

Medina Valley Centre, a Christian based Field Study and Multi-Activity Centre, situated on the banks of the River Medina on the Isle of Wight, is seeking to appoint a new Head of Centre. The Centre employs around 25 staff who work in all areas of the organisation.

We pride ourselves on the care and value we show every guest whilst providing excellent quality sailing, outdoor pursuits and field studies courses. The majority of our work is currently with schools but we are constantly seeking other avenues to use our facilities and range of skills and expertise. Our activities offer includes canoeing, kayaking, sailing, archery and mountain biking to name but a few. Our field studies team are recognised as one of the leading Centres for A-Level and GCSE Geography and Biology courses.

The foundation and aims of the Centre are built around the Christian faith so there is an Occupational Requirement for the applicant to be a practising Christian who subscribes to our vision and values statement.

In addition to their Christian faith the successful applicant will have proven successful leadership skills and demonstrate the relevant qualifications and experience needed to lead a small business including HR, finance, marketing, health and safety and effective communication. In addition you will need an understanding of Field Studies and Multi-Activities, compliance for visiting schools regarding safeguarding, risk assessment and training. The existing staff and the Board are supportive, and we have a great team who have the individual skills and expertise to deliver our courses. The Head of Centre’s job is to lead and co-ordinate the teams to ensure that all work together to achieve our goals.

If you feel God is calling you to this exciting but challenging position please call or email for a more detailed job description and an application form.
