Become the BMC's new Competitions Programme Manager

Posted by Peter Burnside on 23/10/2017

Competition climbing is heading to the Tokyo Olympic Games and the BMC is looking for an outstanding individual to drive the development of our climbing competitions programme in the run-up to 2020.

It goes without saying that we’re looking for someone with a real passion and expert knowledge of indoor climbing and the competition scene. But as well as knowing your crimps from your volumes, you’ll be an exceptional team player with significant event organisation and management experience, either in sports or another relevant high-profile sector.

You won’t be fazed by juggling multiple projects, sponsors and stakeholders, as you’ll be a super well-organised individual who is as happy working with route setters as standing in front of the camera talking to the media or briefing competitors, volunteers and supporters on the technicalities and regulations of competition events.

Full details: Competitions Programme Manager

Duration: Full-time permanent contract.

Remuneration: £33,000 to £36,000 per annum (depending on experience) plus contributory pension scheme, salary sacrifice childcare vouchers, healthcare and life insurance after qualifying period.

Hours of work: 9.00am to 5.00pm, Monday to Friday (35 hours).

Location: based in the BMC office in West Didsbury, Manchester.

Competition climbing is heading to the Tokyo Olympics and the BMC is looking for an outstanding individual to drive the development of our climbing competitions programme in the run-up to 2020.

This is a demanding post which requires a very well-organised and dynamic team player, with strong interpersonal skills and a flexible, positive approach to work.

The programme manager will oversee, co-ordinate and manage the BMC’s climbing competition programme across England and Wales, including the talent pathway, World Class Programme and the GB Climbing and Paraclimbing teams. The role will also entail supporting volunteer groups, liaising with relevant external bodies and being ultimately responsible for the efficient delivery of this diverse and fast-moving aspect of the BMC’s work.

To apply for this position please send the following items to recruitment@thebmc.co.uk

  • A one page covering letter explaining your interest and suitability for the position.
  • An up-to-date CV with details of two referees (note: we will not contact referees without your permission).

The deadline for applications is 4.00pm on Friday 10 November 2017.

Interviews will take place in the week commencing 20 November 2017.

"The programme manager will oversee, co-ordinate and manage the BMC’s climbing competition programme across England and Wales" Is there a reason why the programme is not run in Scotland?
