270 Climbing

We’re on the lookout!

In preparation for the opening of climbing facilities at 270 Climbing Park this Autumn we’re looking to appoint two fundamental positions to help oversee and drive the climbing operations forward. The two exciting roles we are looking for to help make the dream into reality are: CLIMBING MANAGER and HEAD ROUTE SETTER.



As our Climbing Manager you will be responsible for heading up our climbing team and the day-to-day activities within our bouldering facilities, whilst also spending time helping to push forward the world-class climbing gym as it is phased in and comes onboard next year. As a highly motivated and dynamic leader, your focus will be to manage, champion, support and develop the team and organise the climbing gyms to ensure we become the best at what we do. And you need to do it in a way that puts customers experiences and everyone’s safety first, whilst keeping an eye on staff performance, controlling budgets, business efficiencies and cost controls. This significant position within the 270 Team is a full-time role with a negotiable salary of around £40k depending on experience.

Deadline for applications for this role is Friday 26th July with interviews taking place shortly afterwards for a start date asap.



As Head Route Setter you will ultimately be responsible for customers’ climbing experiences on the walls. Primarily focussed on setting on our two roped climbing areas, as well as overseeing the bouldering, you will be working alongside the team you will establish and maintain the quality of our roped climbing gym, ensuring our customers enjoy a range of top class, creative and consistent routes. You will also work with coaching and management teams to ensure both the bouldering and climbing gyms offers something for everyone – from elite athletes to novice beginners; manage internal setting teams (climbing and bouldering) plus external setters; collaborate on in-house competitions and development plans (Squad, NICAS etc); manage holds orders, hardware and resources including the care and maintenance of holds and volumes. This role offers flexible hours with a pro rata FTE salary of £30-£35k depending on experience.

Deadline for applications for the head route setter role are Friday 26th July with interviews taking place shortly afterwards for a flexible starting date.



Help with relocation packages are available for both positions. Various benefits include free climbing, guest passes and loads of perks and discounts from all aspects of the business. Successful candidates must have several years experience, be accomplished at organisation and planning, value inclusivity and diversity, be great at working in a team, have brilliant people and communication skills (no big egos thanks!), be friendly, sociable with a professional attitude and a flexible approach to working including weekends and can do all this while balancing the challenges of establishing and sustaining one the most comprehensive climbing centres in the country with bringing smiles to people’s faces – then you could be the right fit for us!
