Our Staff

At the Regatta Group, we are all about getting people to have great times outdoors. We’re proud of our brands, Regatta, Craghoppers and Dare2b and even prouder of our people, all of whom relish finding customer focused and innovative opportunities to grow our business.

We recruit people with an entrepreneurial spirit, a can do attitude, the ability to build great relationships and, of course, a great work ethic. We look for people with a passion for what they do who can demonstrate great judgement, innovation and impact.

Our teams deliver great outdoor products and brands that our consumers love – all over the world.

We are family owned and, whilst we have grown to have over 1100 employees globally, we still have a family feel and can take a long-term view of the business, investing for the future – both in growing the business and also in our people.
