Vacancies at the BMC

A list of current vacancies at the BMC, as well as jobs with other affiliated outdoor organisations.

Jobs at the BMC:

BMC National Development Squad Coaches (Paid role – £180 per day)

The BMC’s Talent Development Pathway supports climbers from grass roots to national level. The BMC National Development Squad was established in 2017 providing a pathway for talented young climbers to bridge the gap between regional and national competition and international competition. The coming together of talented climbers also provided the opportunity to support their development as climbers and young people and was a chance to give them exposure to the wider climbing community.

The BMC Talent Development Pathway is an athlete centred pathway to develop the longer term, personal and athletic development of our athletes; with the BMC National Development Squad being a part of this pathway. The BMC National Development Squad also provides the pool of climbers from which the GB Youth and Junior Climbing Team is formed for international youth competitions.

The squad is now looking to form its coaching team for the 2020 season and is looking for dedicated and experienced individuals to be part of our fast paced team. BMC National Development Squad Coaches can also apply to be GB Coaches (voluntary role - see below).
