- National Diving Officer

More Council members with leadership, strategy, governance, IT, accountancy, HR or marketing skills and experience would be a strong asset for the club.

Stand for National Diving Officer (NDO)
In May 2018 Sophie Heptonstall is sadly stepping down as BSAC's NDO and we are looking for someone to continue the great work she has been doing. She has done a brilliant job and we hope she has inspired you to put your name forward.
Requirements for the NDO position
The NDO position requires the experience of a National Instructor (NI), and someone who has the time, dedication and patience to handle what can be at times, a challenging yet rewarding job.
I’m interested in becoming NDO, what’s next?
We would like to spend the time running up to the election and May AGM working with all the NDO candidates, so if you are considering the position, please let us know so we can start working together to help smooth the transition for this critical role in BSAC.
Please contact either our existing NDO Sophie, our BSAC Chair Woz, or Mary Tetley (BSAC’s Chief Executive) for more information about this opportunity.
