Robinwood makes a commitment to offer ongoing training and development to all staff throughout their employment. As well as activity based ‘hard skills’ we also offer training in more child centred ‘soft skills’.
The on-going training programme at Robinwood also includes taking part in canoeing, climbing and other outdoor activities under the guidance of our senior staff and independent experts. We provide opportunities for staff to gain nationally recognised qualifications, including BCU star awards, CWA training, SPA training and ML training.
Robinwood staff are employed all year round, on permanent contracts of 22 or 30 hours per week with a regular three or four working days each week and around twelve weeks off each year.
Starting salary is detailed under the ‘Life as a Group Leader’ section. All staff receive performance bonuses, an annual company profit bonus and a company pension.
At Robinwood we hold staff well-being as a high priority so we invest a lot in making sure we have a happy and fulfilled staff team. Every year we run different social and activity events for staff, paid for by the company. We provide assistance to new starters in finding accommodation and have several teams whose job is to look into ways to improving all areas of life for staff at Robinwood.
