Phill Cassidy, Senior Instructor, Broomlee Centre

Phill joined the Dounans staff team in 2012 on and is now Senior Instructor at Broomlee. Phill’s main focus is to make sure that the programming side of a group’s residential visit runs as smoothly as possible, tailoring the programme to suit each group’s needs. Phill always enjoys seeing people young or old, accomplish things that they never thought they could, and spurring them to use it as a stepping stone to go further.

Phill’s love for the outdoors began with attending week long residentials with a local village summer camp as a child. He then went back to volunteer with the same group for four years before it was disbanded. Being a keen hill walker and enjoying seeing children go through the same experiences as himself, Phill applied for a yearlong volunteer trainee instructor position in Argyll and after finishing his placement and becoming an instructor in kayaking, sailing, orienteering, mountain biking, and archery, Phill went on to work in Perthshire during which time he gained his Mountain leader qualification. After a brief trip back to Argyll then the Lake District, Phill has settled at SOEC.

Phill still enjoys getting out in the hills whenever he can.
