Bumping this post. Sam Wilkinson, Training Manager at SpanSet told me today they are still looking to fill this post and ideally would like someone with a caving or climbing back ground. If you know anyone this would be of interest to, please pass on, thank you

Bumping this post again. If you know someone who would be interested in this position, please pass on the details. I work for SpanSet (Marketing) and can vouch for what a decent company they are. There are a number of cavers working for SpanSet (even the MD!) and caving skills are appreciated by the Training Manager, Sam :)
