Disabilities or Illnesses

The Equality Act 2010 prohibits discrimination, victimisation or harassment in employment and membership of organisations. This includes any application process. However, Mountain Rescue work involves physically enduring tasks over a prolonged period of time and some injuries, recurring illnesses or disabilities may render you ineligible for membership of the Team. The Aberglaslyn Mountain Rescue Team welcomes the recruitment of people who have disabilities.

Availability

Callouts can occur at any time during the day or night, and as such membership of the Team carries a responsibility and commitment to attend these incidents in addition to our weekly training sessions. However, we find that most families and employers are extremely supportive of the Team’s work. We are particularly interested in hearing from applicants who can offer their availability during the day time.

Criminal Convictions

Mountain Rescue Teams throughout the UK are the responsibility of the Police Service, and are often privy to sensitive information through an information sharing agreement. Teams are also often called upon to search for the vulnerable within the community and as such it is imperative that all members are of good character.


Experience and Training

Please state if no experience.
(ie. water skills, voluntary work, transferrable skills)
