We are currently recruiting for a Programme Developer (from 0.6FTE to full time negotiable). This is a technical position and would suit a recent Computer Science or Engineering graduate but others would be welcome to apply. The position needs someone who is a good programmer, has excellent written English and good problem-solving skill, and is local enough to our Aldermaston head office to commute there. Salary starts at £30,000 per annum. Please see a full job description and a link to the application form here.
We are always on the lookout for talented staff who are enthusiastic communicators of their fields. We typically employ engineering and computer science students (and occasionally teachers and independent freelancers) to run our courses for a number of weeks in the Easter and summer holidays.
We primarily look for people who have great interpersonal skills and who are highly skilled in one or more fields of technology that we teach. As many of our courses involve programming, we generally include a practical 'programming challenge' in any interviews, so we generally only encourage those who are expert programmers to apply! There are, however, exceptions as some courses (like 3D Printing and Drone Racing) have less programming, and we then look for staff who are highly skilled in these topics. We are not a typical activity camp so opportunities for more general 'camp counsellors' are limited.
We also sometimes have roles for managers at camp and generally look for experienced teachers, although experience in teaching is not necessarily required.
If you wish to apply to work for us for our upcoming season, please email us at and we'll be in touch.
