About the BCIA

A member of the Federation of Environmental Trade Associations (FETA), the BCIA is the unified voice of the UK building controls industry and is committed to supporting all of its members in their efforts to establish and maintain the highest standards in product and system development, application and service. The BCIA encourages skills development and training and aims to influence the development of legislation on building efficiency and control and promote the use of building controls in all of its applications.

About the Role

Reporting to the BCIA President and Management Committee, the main purpose of the role is to manage the day to day running (including the financial and administrative activities) of the BCIA. The Executive Officer is responsible for ensuring the activities of the BCIA are conducted in accordance with its constitution, rules, policies and procedures and for reviewing these on a regular basis to ensure they are relevant and up to date. Other responsibilities include developing a two-year strategic plan consistent with the Association’s aims and objectives; arranging Skills Development, Marketing and Technical Working Group Meetings and working with BCIA partner organisations for the delivery of the annual Awards programme and dinner, training courses and Market Statistics.

Candidates for the position should be educated to graduate level (or equivalent experience); have broad management and leadership experience, preferably in a technical or membership-oriented organisation environment; have good time management skills to enable them to deliver projects on time and to budget and be self-motivated, have integrity, and be able to encourage others (many of whom are volunteers) to meet their commitments. A working knowledge of the building controls industry would be advantageous but is not essential.
