BMC Office to furlough on fridays

Posted by Alex Messenger on 05/02/2021

As the Coronavirus pandemic continues, we have taken the decision to close the BMC office on Friday until the end of April.

Coronavirus is having a significant financial impact on the BMC. To ensure the BMC remains financially secure and emerges from the coronavirus pandemic in a healthy state, we have taken the decision to flexi-furlough all of our staff to protect the long-term future of our operations for climbers, hill walkers and mountaineers.

From 1 February to 30 April 2021, there will be a reduction in working hours across all BMC staff, from five days a week to four.

If you're contacting the BMC, please be aware that all staff have had a 20% reduction in their working week so it may have an impact on their availability.

We will be constantly reviewing the flexi-furlough scheme so that things can return to normal as quickly as is appropriate. We would like to reassure all members that this is a temporary measure, and as soon as the flexi-furlough is lifted we will back to full capacity.


We want to say a big thanks to every BMC member who continues to support us through the Coronavirus crisis.

From weekly Facebook Lives and GB Climbing home training videos, to our access team working to re-open the crags and fight for your mountain access, we couldn’t do it without you.

Did you know that we've just launched a new U27 membership offer for just £1 / month? And with full membership from £1.66 / month, it's never been easier to join and support our work:
