Job Description

At Hurricane Island Outward Bound School (HIOBS), our staff is the heart and soul of our school—from the team of people working behind the scenes, to the field staff who put incredible care and dedication into every program. Their leadership, technical abilities, and educator skills add depth to the course experience and provide for the safety of our students. Field staff return to HIOBS time and time again because of the lives they’ve touched, the friendships they’ve built, and the continuous inspiration and professional development that our community provides. Our Instructors are teachers, climbers, mentors, paddlers, social activists, sea-faring captains, naturalists, community builders, and are—above all—compassionate. They bring passion and intentionality to their outdoor classroom, inspiring the next generation of explorers and adventurers. They share their extensive experience and skills in interpersonal, technical elements, risk management, wilderness, and experiential education to create the magic that is Outward Bound. What they do is no less than life-changing for our students and our community. 

As an organization that prides itself on serving our students to the highest degree, we seek experienced professionals—administrators, student services representatives, educators, field instructors, guides, outdoor enthusiasts, and group managers to join our ranks.
