Robinwood is a leading provider of residential multi-activity courses for primary schools in the North of England and North Wales. Every year around 50,000 children attend a Robinwood course at one of our activity centres. Our courses are so popular that we are well-booked all year round, enabling us to offer staff permanent employment, which is unusual within our industry.
What makes your company different from the competition?
At Robinwood we are very proud of our staff, we listen to them and value their ideas, and they have made a huge difference to both the children we work with and the growth of the company.
We are proud to have been listed in the 'Sunday Times Top 100 Best Companies to Work for' for the last six years! We also hold Investors in People Gold Award, 3* Investors in Customers Award and the Quality Badge for LOTC.
How many people do you employ or train each year?
We employ around 300 members of staff across our three activity centres.
Why are you a good company to work for or train with?
The wellbeing and work-life balance of our staff team is very important to us, Staff have 5-day contracts (for at least the first year, with an option to reduce after that) and work the same regular days each week, with manageable hours and around 12 weeks holiday a year!
We recruit people on their positivity and enthusiasm, as well as their ability to support others. We have an excellent framework for staff support, personal development and career progression.
