Working at the BPA

Working at the BPA is challenging but also fun and we get to work on some very interesting projects and meet some engaging people. It’s a very collaborative environment where everyone is willing to help each other for the good of the Association.

Often fondly referred to as BPA Towers, our office is actually a modest one floor open plan space housing 26 office based staff with an additional 9 Area Mangers working within each of their respective regions.  

We are proud to have become one of few organisations nationwide to be awarded Investors in People Gold status. 

The prestigious award is described by IIP as an achievement of ‘world class best practice’ and means we are considered to have the highest standards of people management and development that support our business goals.                                                                                                                                         

Achieving Gold is recognition of the commitment and passion of our staff members and testament to the fact that everyone is fully engaged in our vision.


Career Progression

The BPA recently underwent a major restructure to ensure that all of relevant skills were in place to meet the existing and future challenges faced by the Association, and to better serve the needs of the membership.

There are often opportunities to progress through the Association with many staff having worked for the BPA for a number of years but in different roles, as the needs of the business have evolved over time. Staffing has grown by over 50% in the last 4 years alone.

BPA Staff Benefits

Staff normally work a 35 hour week and can benefit from a flexi-time scheme after six months service. We also offer a stakeholder pension scheme, childcare voucher scheme and season ticket advance. Regular team and staff away-days take place and the Christmas away-day is always an occasion that will live long in the memory. Each team takes a turn in hosting the day and no-one quite knows what to expect!
