Wanted! Volunteers for the technical committee

Posted by Daniel Middleton on 21/09/2017
Gear geeks and normal people wanted!

Do you have some spare time and energy on your hands? Do you want to give something back to the climbing and walking community? If the answer is yes, then the BMC needs you!

The BMC are currently recruiting new volunteers for the Technical Committee. We’re looking for candidates who are keen walkers or climbers who would be able to assist with the work programme of the committee.

The committee as a group provides advice on safety equipment, contributes to the development of equipment standards, and produces reports on equipment failure. We meet four times per year, usually a Monday evening at the BMC office in Manchester, with attendance via Skype for those unable to attend in person.

We’re looking for enthusiastic people with an interest in outdoor equipment, and although a scientific, technical or engineering background would be useful, we’re equally interested in applicants with other skills who can help us make our work accessible to a wider audience.

You don’t need to be an expert already as there will be plenty of opportunity and support to learn more as part of the role. The BMC is actively seeking to widen the diversity within the organisation, so we would particularly welcome applicants from underrepresented groups. The BMC covers volunteer expenses including travel and food so you won’t be out of pocket.

If this sounds interesting, contact Dan Middleton, BMC Technical Officer dan@thebmc.co.uk for an informal chat.
