Hear from one of our Team Members:

"Hi, my name is Matt.
 am 25 years old and have been working for Hardrock Climbing for four and a half years. I am passionate about working with young people and seeing growth and development. I love being active outdoors, especially with my two dogs.

As a Hardrock staff member I am privileged to work in a wide variety of settings. I started my journey as an instructor, working with customers and groups in customer service, supervision, group facilitation and retail.

As I have worked, I have had the opportunity to upskill and take on additional opportunities. These have included training new staff, conducting centre maintenance tasks, facilitating lead climbing courses and assisting in administration tasks.

Hardrock is an excellent workplace thanks to its incredible diversity in work tasks, great customer interaction and upskilling potential. Hardrock provides the opportunity to develop transferable skills like communication and teamwork that will improve one’s career. Through Hardrock I have improved my ability to communicate with customers, address issues and respond to incidents.

My most rewarding work has been conducting children’s parties and seeing the progress young people make in such a short time with the right support and encouragement."
