Chief Commercial Officer (CCO)

  • Location: North West
  • Organisation: British Mountaineering Council
  • Salary: Basic salary of £65,000 per annum with OTE circa £70k
  • Closing Date: 09 August 2021 | Business Development & Sales

This is a new and exciting position at a forward-looking membership organisation - one that represents the interests of nearly 80,000 members and a further 3 million climbers, hill walkers and mountaineers across England and Wales. The Chief Commercial Officer will be a member of the Senior Management Team (SMT) and will lead a team of 14 staff.

The CCO will drive both membership and revenue growth through partnerships, sponsorship and other commercial activity; by bringing together Marcomms, Events and the BMC’s existing Commercial activity (including the BMC’s Insurance products and Shop).

With a clear target to enhance the BMC’s commercial position, the CCO will further develop the BMC’s existing revenue streams as well as identify and secure new ones.

We are seeking a self-starting individual with a strong commercial mindset, an analytical approach and the business acumen needed to identify, prioritise, and execute those opportunities that will yield the biggest reward for the BMC and its members.

You will have experience of overseeing teams delivering multichannel marketing programmes, with the skills to enhance and further develop our existing marketing strategy. You will make decisions based on data and insight, and have the ability to lead the execution of a strategy through your team.

Previous experience of developing and commercialising winning propositions is a must, as is a strong track record in achieving significant income from commercial partnerships or affinities. A strong background in developing ‘membership offers’ would be an advantage.

You will be a creative and strategic thinker, with a passion for collaboration, with exceptional interpersonal skills, adaptability, and resilience.

As a member of the Senior Team, you will also contribute to developing and driving the organisational strategy and ongoing business improvement - relevant skills and experience in these areas complete the picture of our ideal candidate.

We share a love of the outdoors and have a passion for climbing, hill walking and mountaineering - we hope that you do too.

Let us know why you are interested in applying for this new role, by sending a covering letter and up-to-date CV to by 5pm on Monday 9 August 2021. Each application will be reviewed against our job specification and our essential and desirable criteria. 

It would be appreciated if you could complete the BMC’s Equality & Diversity Monitoring Form at the time of application.
