At the heart of all British Exploring expeditions is a skilled team of scientists, mountain leaders, tropical experts, instructors, medics and youth workers. The Society benefits from high return leadership, including specialist and veteran leaders with diverse professional and expeditionary experience. Explorers who have progressed on to leadership roles also form an important part of team expertise and the continuum of leadership development.
British Exploring is a non-profit organisation with an active membership at its core. Accordingly, leader positions on expedition are in great demand, despite being voluntary. There is no paid employment within the team structure; leaders of expedition teams join for the intrinsic value of exploration, adventure, inquiry and development of young people.
For each expedition, the Chief Leader and Operations Manager gather a team with the skills and experience appropriate to the region and expedition projects. Positions are filled on a competitive basis following a Leader introduction and selection day at the Royal Geographical Society.
