BCA seeks new PL Scheme Manager


Well-known member
BCA is looking for a volunteer to take over the role of Insurance Manager from me.

The primary part of the job is to take responsibility for negotiating with brokers to ensure adequate, affordable Public Liability cover is maintained. This entails regular contact through the year and a meeting lasting around half a day in December each year.

The job also includes dealing with insurance related enquiries from members and others. Most of these will actually be dealt with by the Membership Administrator and the more difficult ones can usually be referred to the broker who are very supportive. Maintenance of the FAQ is another responsibility.

Overall, the job takes 1 - 2 hours per month January - October and probably about 6-8 hours total in November and December. Regular attendance at BCA Council meetings is not required but a short written report will need to be provided 4 times per year and occasional attendance would be desirable.

The post would suit somebody who has some experience of caving club administration but there is plenty of support in place to assist with technical issues so it is not necessary for the candidiate to have an in-depth knowledge of insurance, legal matters or UK caving politics. This is a relatively small job in BCA's portfolio and so it provides a good opportunity for a new face to make a really valuable contribution to BCA without needing a huge commitment of time.

If you are interested, or have any questions, please drop me a line by PM.
