OUTDOOR CAREERS

This section of our website is still being developed but over time we plan to add more information on:

    • Outdoor Job Vacancies
    • Outdoor Career Pathways
    • Outdoor related Courses across Recreation, Education, Tourism and Nature Therapy

CAREER PATHWAYS

If you love being outside, enjoy nature and working with people there are many career options for you and no set route to follow. Mostly you need a good balance of technical skills and people skills.

Here you can see how three Outdoor Educators have developed their careers. Going forward, we hope to add other career insights from across the outdoors community.
