Our pledge to DofE Award holders
- We believe The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award makes young people more employable and better prepares them for work.
- We believe the DofE develops young people’s leadership, problem-solving, self-management and teamworking skills – attributes essential to the future of UK business.
- We look favourably on young recruits with DofE Awards in our recruitment process.
Starting with one shop in the Cotswolds (South–West England) in 1974; we now have 68 stores across the UK staffed by outdoor enthusiasts and have a really fantastic informative website and knowledgeable mail order advisors at the end of the phone.
Many of our employees start in our stores often working part-time hours to fit around their studies or other commitments. It’s a great way to learn about and sell outdoor kit to a wide range of customers and work with like-minded individuals in a fun retail environment.
