Organizational Training Specialist

The Front Climbing Club
Salt Lake City, UT
$50,000 - $60,000 USD yearly

The Front Climbing Club was Utah's first indoor rock climbing gym, and one of the first in the nation. From its humble beginnings as The Body Shop back in the 80's to three best-in-class facilities today, The Front has never lost its soul or connection to its roots.  

The Front is led by three core values, which are outlined below. These values drive our day-to-day decisions as well as the future vision for our company. We expect every member of our team to embrace these values and believe they should align with your personal values to do so.   

However, this position is not just for The Front - you will split your time between it and its sister company, Vertical Solutions.  

Vertical Solutions is the largest domestic climbing wall builder and offers everything needed to get climbers off the ground - walls, holds and pads. This manufacturing-heavy side of the gig requires broad recruiting and compliance experience.  

We do not offer easy jobs. We simply cannot slow down enough to kick back and relax while we are at work, but we highly encourage you to shut off your devices and email and disappear into the mountains on your own time.  

Our culture is built on this level of work ethic, as well as integrity, community (we do not use that word lightly), and unity.  

All that said, we also know how to have a good time. 


You are passionate about people and their professional development. You want to help create a culture of rockstars that love what they do! You don't shy away from a challenge and enjoy working in a fast-paced environment. You are invested in the potential of our staff, finding talent that complements the unique cultures of our companies. 

You have a keen eye for detail when it comes to organization and have tools to ensure things don't get missed. You are a time-managing guru and know how to prioritize projects so that all gets done at a reasonable time. 

When you're here, you're committed to productivity, innovation, and driving the vision. And, you can maintain positivity, compassion, and even a sense of humor while you do it.
