What our staff say


Charlotte joined the Essex Outdoors Seasonal Instructor Team in 2018 and has spoken about her experiences;

“I ran my own business for 14 years before I started at Danbury. After my business ended I enrolled in college before finding a job as an Instructor through Chelmsford Job Centre at a recruitment session. 
I have learnt that I am much happier working outdoors as I revel in the delights of other’s achievements. It’s been good fun, helped by the glorious weather we had this summer. I’ve enjoyed working within a team again and being witness to the achievements of our customers”
