The Jonathan Conville Memorial Trust forward is seeking a new Trustee with social media and website expertise.
The Trust was established in 1980, shortly after Jonathan Conville’s death, to provide professionally delivered subsidised mountaineering training courses for young people, especially in the Alpine environment, where Jonathan died and which he loved. Over 5000 young people have since attended one of the Trust’s courses, currently overseen and delivered by the Trust’s training partner Plas y Brenin.
Whilst the Trust is held in very high regard within the mountaineering community, and their courses are ever popular, the Trustees are conscious that its very limited social media presence may be limiting the audience aware of their courses. An improved social media presence will also help with future fund raising activities. The website element of the role is to update content on the Trust's website on a very occaisonal basis. No expertise in building or designing websites is required.
Further details about the volunteer post can be found by clicking below. The closing date is 30 September with the new Trustee to be appointed in time for them to attend the Trust’s AGM at the BMC’s Manchester offices on Saturday 16 October.
This is an exciting opportunity to join a small team of dedicated Trustees committed to the delivery of training excellence in mountaineering for young people.
