We’re Recruiting


2 new Directors needed

The ABC’s constitution provides for 9 Member Directors and for each Director to give a maximum of 6 years service.

We now have 2 positions that we want to fill at this year’s AGM.

Being a Director of the ABC allows you to influence the direction of the climbing industry in these fast moving times.  We have a skills matrix and are particularly interested in the following areas, but will not rule out anyone who does not possess them.

  • technical skills/qualifications relating to climbing and instruction
  • technical skills/experience relating to the construction of walls and holds
  • HR and Employment law knowledge
  • The legal and insurance side of running climbing walls

We currently have just one Director from a relatively small, non-commercial wall so would like to improve that side of our representation if possible.

The board meets 4 times each year and each meeting takes a full day.  In addition, you will be expected to contribute to discussions and work on an ad hoc basis throughout the year.  Your expenses are covered but this is a voluntary role.

If this role is something that’s of interest to you, please send a short CV and a half page summary of the skills you’ll bring to the board to admin@abcwalls.co.uk.

If you’d rather chat the role over first, please drop Rich Emerson, Chair, an email on chair@abcwalls.co.uk and suggest some times when you can talk.

In order to get your information to the members who will vote on the Directors in advance of the AGM, please make sure it gets to us by Monday 17th June.
