A search for Exmouth’s most adventurous over-40 to become ‘chief exploration officer’ has been launched by a camping expert business.

The new Camping in the Forest ‘CEO’ will get paid to test outdoor activities and one lucky Exmouth resident will receive a salary of £500 as well as an itinerary of activities to test and feedback on throughout the summer.

Outdoor activities will include horse riding, treetop walks, axe throwing and kayaking, with caving and canoeing also on the agenda.

Rebecca Phipps, marketing manager for Camping in the Forest said: “We want to celebrate the inner child of the over 40s, so our new Chief Exploration Officer role is the perfect position for someone who knows their reef knot from their granny knot, loves exploring new places and thinks walking boots were made to be muddy.
