Not a great experience
My experience working for this company as a Field Cook was not great. The job interview and training was really misleading, staff were overworked, ill and underpaid for the 18 hour shifts we did some days. You have to pay for your own uniform as well as contribute £5 a day to food and accommodation.
Pros
Nice staff, friendly colleagues, nice settings
Cons
Long hours, low pay, health issues

Great Job. Okay managment.
The days work consists of waking up at 06:00 and completing various jobs around the camp such as cleaning the toilets, lighting fires and making the camp ready for the day. Then throughout the day you lead various bushcraft activities such as fire lighting, animal tracking, shelter building and outdoor cooking for groups of up too 15 children. Also you are responsible for safeguarding of the children and their personal welfare. The working day usually finishes at 22:00 but staff members are on active duty throughout the night, ready to wake up if members of the camp need anything such as blankets or become upset.
Pros
Great working enviroment. Outdoor living skills. Fun members of staff to work with.
Cons
Very long Hours. Small salary. Unreliable shift patterns.

Exciting job, hard work
Long hours but an exciting job. When I worked there, work was based in oxford so transport was expensive and no transfers where provided from the local train station to work.
