British Automatic Fire Sprinkler Association (BAFSA) is the UK’s leading professional trade association for the fire sprinkler industry and is dedicated to making sure that sprinkler systems are installed to the highest professional standards.
BAFSA’s primary objectives include providing authoritative information on the benefits of sprinkler systems and how sprinklers can play a significant role in saving life and property from the devastating effects of fire. BAFSA works closely with the government, fire and rescue services, building control officers, insurers, architects and planners.
BAFSA’s members install more than 85% of the sprinkler and water mist installations in the UK across all sectors and include a significant majority of third-party certified sprinkler installers as well as manufacturers; suppliers; contractors; insurers; the fire and rescue services and others with an interest in the field. Increasingly we have offered a home to smaller companies just entering the market and now represents a large number of companies offering the installation of domestic and residential fire sprinkler systems. Many of the association’s members also design and install water mist systems.
Our current Chief Executive, who has successfully led the association for the past six years, has decided to retire from the role at the end of the year. We are therefore seeking an individual who has the skills and drive to grow our membership, raise awareness and increase our impact. To be successful you will have a proven track record of influencing and/or campaigning, with significant experience of complex stakeholder management, and working collaboratively and effectively through partnerships. You will be a skilled and facilitative leader of people and an exceptional communicator.
