2018 MTA volunteer opportunities

Regional Coordinator

Our membership is growing annually and the spread of members across the UK is ever changing. As a result, we're looking to create more local communities of support within the wider MTA community and we have a number of brand new regional volunteer posts available. These additional regional groups will allow us to provide more CPD and peer events on your doorsteps. Based on the current membership spread, we're looking to recruit volunteer regional coordinators in the following new regions:
  • Bristol (South West)
  • Eastern Highlands of Scotland (Cairngorms and surrounding areas)
  • West Highlands of Scotland (Glencoe and surrounding areas)
Please note: A Scotland Central Belt region has recently been created and the Regional Coordinator and Support Volunteers will be announced shortly.

Support Volunteer

Similarly, if you're interested in volunteering in some capacity but you're not sure you want to take on the position of a regional coordinator, why not apply to be a support volunteer in your region instead? Support volunteers exist to provide a little bit of help to the regional coordinator throughout the year; organising some events and perhaps hosting some meet-ups at venues near you, to share the load and reduce the amount of travel for the regional coordinators.

Prerequisites

As above.

How to apply

Simply download and fill in the application form below and email it to jo@mountain-training.org.

Deadline for applications

Our regional coordinators welcome suppport from other members all year round, so there is no current deadline on applications for support volunteers.


Other ways to get involved in your regional group

If you're an MTA member and you're interested in attending an event in your area, have a browse through the MTA workshop programme to find events near you. Alternatively, have a chat to your regional coordinator.
