Get Involved - Volunteer and help your MCofS!

If you have an interest in hill walking, mountaineering or climbing, and are a member of the MCofS, volunteering is a great way to put something back. You can make a real difference!

How can you help?

A team of staff, led by the Chief Officer and supported by volunteers, is responsible for the day to day management of the MCofS and for implementing our strategic and operational plans.

Volunteers include our directors, who through their membership of the Board are responsible for the overall governance of the MCofS and for approving and overseing strategic direction. Volunteers also support and assist our work through advisory and working groups, including mountain safety, access & conservation, club development, and specialist activity advisory groups including hill walking, climbing and ski-touring.

Members of advisory and working groups usually have relevant technical skills or experience which will contribute to our work.

Details of current vacancies are listed here.


In return, we offer the chance to work alongside a committed group of volunteers who have the interests of our broader membership at heart, and who all enjoy the hills. We offer volunteers reimbursement of travel expenses incurred on MCofS work.

In Good Company

Our volunteers include many well-known personalities from the world of climbing, mountaineering and the outdoors. Most of our volunteers are less well-known and simply want to contribute to the aims of the Council.
