About Us…

 

At The Living Project, we’re all about Wild adventures to inspire Life

 

Our philosophy is this

human and whole-planet health and wellbeing benefit from being outside

 

adventures in wild places inspire us to re-connect with ourselves, each other, and the planet - life!

 

for us, adventure (and life for that matter) can be broken down into four key elements:

 

Water

challenge, reflect, refresh

 

Earth

grounding, security, presence

 

Fire

intention, ignition, passion

 

Air

 confidence, connection, play

 

we use our passion and experience to curate Wild adventures to inspire Life

 

Our motto/intention is this:

 

"BE true. LIVE WILD"

getting involved

 

Initially we're looking for some support facilitating Wild adventures to inspire Life for young people and adults in wild places around the UK

This involves providing a safe, nurturing environment in which all guests feel supported, cared for and empowered on their adventure

Taking care of guests basic needs. We’re not an expedition skills or survival company. We’re passionate about providing the basics for guests (sorting their shelter, guiding them safely, cooking their food, loving them) so that they can engage with and enjoy the best bits of adventure - being in the wild, listening and self-exploration

We love empowering your passion to shape our adventures. Our journeys feature a range of magic practise such as yoga, mindfulness, coaching, journaling, foraging, wild swimming and if you’ve got a particular love of any one or more of these - or have your own stardust to sprinkle we’re keen for this passion and awareness to permeate the adventure and shape the journey our guests have in the wild

As with all outdoor leadership roles tasks throughout our different products vary. Tasks can range from making morning coffee in a wild camp for a group of adults, to encouraging young people to stop and listen to the birds

 

Apply if...

 

You’ll love working with us if you’re more keen on immersion than achievement of a goal. Our guests join us because we’re all about moving slow in wild places, creating nurturing environments, and engaging in practises that bring us closer to ourselves, each other and the wild

 

Likewise, you’ll probably not enjoy working with us if you’re keen to guide groups to achieve a summit or similar - that’s not really our bag

We're a small business, and we're growing. While we're initially looking for support with facilitation we're keen to hear from people open to exploring how their magic could contribute to/collaborate with the business as a whole, and be open as to where that might lead

You'll need...

Some form of mountain/walk/lowland leader/forest bathing training or similar (there's a lot of trainings we don't know about so please don't be governed by this list - just tell us what you've got)

First Aid certificate

Enhanced DBS

Training/regular practise in something you're passionate about like - yoga, mindfulness, mental health awareness, foraging, environmentalism, biology or something else - you tell us!

An absolute love of connecting with other people, meeting them where they are

A passion for connecting with the natural world of which we are a part

 

 

What we do for you

 

we provide the following benefits:

 

£150 per day for freelance facilitation

£50 expense contribution per contract

Bonus scheme for client referrals

2 day annual crew gathering/training with The Living Project founders - In 2022 this is on March 5/6 (you need to be able to attend this to work with us in 2022)

Opportunity to work for small business committed to quality, and living our commitment

Opportunity for your personal passion and magic to shape our adventures and the inspiring experience of our guests

Opportunity to explore how your magic could contribute to the business as a whole, and consider the potential for where that might lead
