The BMC has an exciting and coveted role that requires an ambitious, collaborative and strategic leader to drive the organisation and its people forward. You must be able to inspire the mountaineering community at all levels and in line with the vision, mission, and values of the BMC’s strategic plan.

As CEO of the BMC, you will work tirelessly to represent all members be they climbers, mountaineers or people who have a passion for the great outdoors, whilst also taking advantage of the significant commercial opportunity to tap into the growing levels of popularity in indoor climbing and hill walking.

The BMC has a clear mission for 2020 – 2024, focusing on linking the work being carried out by all their staff, volunteers, clubs, and partners, to campaign effectively, increase engagement and become a stronger voice for climbers, hill walkers and mountaineers.

As CEO, you will be expected to oversee the successful implementation of this plan, ensuring the highest standards of business operations at all levels, and empower a committed and passionate workforce.

As CEO, you will hold one of the key roles within the world of mountaineering and hill walking and as such a genuine interest and involvement in climbing, hill walking or mountaineering would be advantageous.

The role will be based at the BMC’s headquarters located in south Manchester but will support remote and flexible working when necessary. The nature of the role requires frequent travel and applicants must be flexible to spend periods of time away from home at weekends and evenings with potential travel overseas.
