Deputy Chief Leader
The Deputy Chief Leader role varies on each expedition. Primarily, it involves acting as the Chief Leader’s ‘Right Hand Man’ and as a result needs to compliment his/her skills; hence the role is largely defined by the Chief Leader.
On some expeditions this is a leader position in its own right whilst in others it may just be an additional responsibility allocated to an existing leader position i.e. you could be both a group (‘Fire’) leader or Base Camp Manager as well as the Deputy Chief Leader. The Deputy Chief Leader would take overall responsibility for the expedition should the Chief Leader need to step down for any reason.
