Future Leaders - The BESA

Future Leaders

Enabling early career personnel working in the building engineering services industry to have a voice and be heard

The impending skills gap is well known in the building services sector and in the construction industry in general.

As an Association we know how important it is to attract and keep talent who will embrace emerging technologies and proactively collaborate with their peers to safeguard the future of our industry.


What is Future Leaders?

Future Leaders is a networking and collaboration group which was set up in order to enable the next generation of the building engineering services industry to have a voice and be heard. With the skills gap in our sector only widening we know that we must embrace and support talent and give them the tools to protect and enhance the future of our industry. 

We launched our Future Leaders project to bring together early career personnel working in the building engineering services sector to learn about the industry and new technology, collaborate and take this forward through their own companies and through the BESA.


The programme is open to anyone early in their career in the building services industry such as graduates, engineers, apprentices, technicians etc. If you or anyone in your organisation would be interested in joining the programme, or for more information please contact us by completing the form below.


The group, supported by BESA are:

Exploring ways to encourage new entrants into our sector

Finding ways to support those at early stages of their building engineering services career

Identifying, embracing and collaborating with new technologies including site visits to see how technologies are used in practice

Shadowing other professionals and taking part in meetings such as the BESA's technical, legal and commercial, employer affairs and finance groups

And much more...


The first meeting focussed on making decisions in regards to how the group operates – how often they would like to meet, what they hope to get out of the project, how they can really make a difference and collaborate with the BESA.

The group had the opportunity to see district heating in action with a Citigen Tour, attend the BESA President's Lunch, BESA National Conference and Awards. They have elected a chair and vice chair of the group allowing them to have representatives in BESA groups and committees including BESA Council.
