Hill Party Member – Recruiting from Supporters Group

NEWSAR is currently pursuing a policy of recruiting hill party members from our Supporters Group. Prospective Hill Party members should therefore consider joining the Supporters Group and coming to support team fundraising events for several months. This provides an opportunity for you to get to know the team and for us to meet you too.

This is proving a successful route to taking on trainees who are more likely to thrive within the organisation when they know more about what they are joining.

For more information on joining the NEWSAR Supporters Group please visit this page:

General details on the Independent Trustee role and how to apply may be found at the Independent Trustee recruitment page.

What is the commitment required from a Team Member?

The key criteria for membership are commitment, a willingness to learn and the ability to work as part of a close and supportive team. Prospective Team Members should have good hill awareness and be physically fit.

NEWSAR currently trains every Wednesday evening, with a month off in August.  As an Aspirant and Trainee Member you will be expected to attend at least 75% of these events. The commitment for Full Team Members is not as high but it is important that you continue to train, enhance and exercise those skills learnt.

As fundraising is critical for NEWSAR, you will also be expected to attend a minimum number of fundraising events.

Whilst it is not always possible to attend callouts, we would expect that you do attend whenever possible.
