Option one - membership queries including:
  • changes to personal details such as names, addresses or emails
  • changes to your place of work
  • changes in your circumstances which might mean a change of membership category (e.g. retirement)
Option two - for your national office (England, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales)

If you do not have a workplace representative and you require advice on a work related or professional issue then please use this option. You should always try to make contact with your local workplace representative where possible, as they will be able to support you directly or access advice from the Regional or National Officer on your behalf.

National offices are open 09.00 to 17.00, Monday to Friday, excluding UK Bank Holidays.

Option three - any other enquiry, to speak to a known member of RCM staff, or just to leave a message

You can call us with a work related issue and if it’s outside office hours, we will record your enquiry, and ensure it’s forwarded to your country office to be read the next working day.
