We're hiring. Come. Join the fight.
Our crusade against tedium is picking up steam so we're looking for new recruits. If you're quicker than a slippery whippet, craftier than a fox and as smooth as a freshly waxed mole then keep reading.
There's a new job open - the deadline for which is Friday 30th March 2018. It's based in the Bristol office but it's likely to involve occasional travel to countries where the adventures take place and other places where we run events and meet ups.
We’re fighting to make the world less boring by creating adventures which fly haphazrdly in the face of health and safety. We’ve sent thousands of people on adventures with only their wit and a bag full of cable ties and the teams have raised over £7 million for great causes so you'll also be playing a part in our modest plan to save the world.
Still wondering exactly what it is we do? Watch this to find out.
We’re hiring for a Director of Field Operations & Logistics with demonstrable success and experience at a senior level to oversee our activities across the globe as we grow rapidly.
Director of Field Operations & Logistics
Location: Bristol, UK - Relocation allowance available
Job Type: Full-time
Reporting to: Managing Director
Salary: Negotiable; dependent upon experience
Deadline for applications: 30/03/2018
We are looking for a highly experienced field operations and logistics professional to join the senior management team at The Adventurists.
You’ll oversee our in-house event management team and our team of external operations contractors based all over the world. You’ll be responsible for a broad range of projects and operational challenges including delivering complex events, new product development and costing, fulfilment systems for the sale of physical goods such as clothing and equipment, film production & location management and a range of international shipping requirements such as importing vehicles from China to multiple countries around the world.
We’re growing and diversifying rapidly, so you’ll be responsible for improving and expanding the UK and overseas operations teams, whilst reducing the risk of our increasingly complex activities. You’ll need to be obsessed with details, processes and timelines to meet complex international logistics challenges. You’ll have proven experience of successfully managing projects with big budgets. Sometimes you’ll need the patience of a saint and unrelenting determination - we operate in regions where getting stuff done isn’t always easy.
We’ll also be adding to our collection of existing adventures and races. Our events include the Mongol Derby (the world’s longest horse race), the Icarus Trophy (a long distance paramotor flying race), and the Rickshaw Run (driving tuk tuks across India).
