Dig Deep is a small charity founded by student volunteers which provides clean water supplies to communities in East Africa.  We’re now looking for someone to join our team to lead our next fundraising challenge - climbing Kilimanjaro. The sponsorship raised by the group completing this epic challenge will transform thousands of lives by providing clean water supplies to communities across East Africa. Mount Kilimanjaro is one of the most impressive sights in Africa and climbing it is one of the all time great achievements. It’s the largest freestanding mountain in the world and the trek encompasses terrains from jungle to glacier.  Reaching the summit and watching the sun rise over the vast African plains truly is the experience of a lifetime.

The challenge is going to take place in the summer of 2016 and so we are now recruiting for the Challenge Leader. The responsibilities of the role will include:

  • Running a recruitment campaign to select a team of dedicated students to attempt the challenge
  • Facilitating the group’s fundraising and ensuring the social cohesion of the group in the build up to the challenge
  • Leading the group to the summit ensuring the welfare and morale of your team

Our skilled local guides will be there on the ground to arrange logistics and take care of all health and safety aspects, so you will not need mountaineering experience to take on the role. What is essential however is drive, confidence and the ability to motivate others..

The deadline for applications is 1st May 2015.
