Volunteers needed for BMC Implementation Group

Posted by Kate Anwyl on 24/08/2018

The BMC is seeking two to three volunteers from the membership to join the Implementation Group overseeing the roll-out of the recommendations of the BMC’s Organisational Review.

In April 2017 the BMC commissioned a QC led independent review of the governance, structure and management of the organisation. Phase I culminated at the BMC AGM 2018, in acceptance of the recommendations, in the spirit of the ORG’s work, and the adoption of a modern set of Articles of Association defining a new governance structure for the organisation, aligned with contemporary best practice in sports governance.

The BMC is now addressing Phase II of the Review, namely the development and implementation of around 40 wide ranging, and interlinking, recommendations. The overall organisational change it recommends is likely to take several years to fully complete. The recommendations include a review of the organisational strategy and development of key policies, structures for managing competition climbing, the BMC’s presence in Wales, commercial activities, new strategies for supporting and engaging members, key partner organisations, volunteers, indoor climbers, hill walkers, and clubs, alongside a range of HR and internal management improvements.

About the Implementation Group

An implementation group (IG) made up of senior staff, volunteers including the BMC’s National Councillors and others from the membership will oversee the roll-out of the recommendations; the IG has recently been set up and we are now looking for others to join our group.

The IG comprises the following members:

  • IG Chair: Vice President (John Roberts)
  • President (Lynn Robinson)
  • CEO (Dave Turnbull)
  • 1 x Independent Director (Amanda Parshall)
  • 2 x National Council members (Andy Syme & Fiona Sanders)
  • 2 - 3 x ‘Independent’ BMC Members (from outside of National Council)
  • IG Project Manager (part time paid role – currently in recruitment)

About the independent member roles

The independent BMC members we are seeking should have significant experience in one or more of the following areas to support the BMC’s organisational change:

  • Finance / commercial
  • Communication implementation
  • Policy development
  • Volunteer and membership engagement

The roles will involve monthly meetings in Manchester, ongoing weekly communications and further work in partnership with staff and other volunteers. Reasonable travel expenses are payable.

How to apply
