Ready to take on the trails like never before?

Our mountain biking trails are built by riders.

With a passion for the sport, our team knows what makes a good trail. Armed with a drive to deliver the best, they’re not satisfied until every detail of the trail has been considered, and every inch of the trail has been tested.

Does this sound like you?

We’re currently recruiting for Trail Builders to join our team. Based out of Aberdeenshire, the successful candidates will get the chance to work on mountain bike trails all over Scotland, so a willingness to travel is essential.

Who are we looking for?

We don’t need you to fit into a mould. Though there are some things we look for in all our team members, we want you to reach your potential and build a career that reflects your skills and what you like to do. All we ask of you is that you are:

  • Highly motivated and able to use your initiative and collaborate with other team members
  • A keen mountain biker (you’ll get to do plenty of trail testing in this role!)
  • Someone who enjoys working outdoors
  • Eager to learn and contribute new ideas
  • Able to work away from home when required
  • Experienced in trail building as volunteer or professional

One of these positions is for a skilled tracked excavator operator ideally with a wide range of groundworks, trail or path building experience.

On meeting you, we will have an open discussion about your career aspirations and how you see yourself fitting into the trails team. The role will be yours to develop, and we’re excited to learn what you can bring to the table.

Working for the CRC Trails Team

As well as the chance to build an exciting career in mountain bike trail development, you’ll also receive a range of benefits:

  • Salary commensurate with experience and meeting the above criteria
  • 28 days holiday (inclusive of all public holidays and a compulsory Christmas break)
  • Company van or transport
  • Professional development and training opportunities
  • Access to a workplace pension scheme
  • Generous subsistence payments when working away
  • The chance to build and ride some of the latest mountain bike trails in Scotland

Closing Date for Applications: 16th December 2022
