BMSI welcome Uxbridge Students to experience a career in BEMS

Earlier this month BMSI were delighted to invite three students from Uxbridge College to spend a week shadowing BMSI staff and experiencing first-hand what a career in BeMS/HVAC Controls really looks like.

 

Following an initial induction day at BMSI’s Windsor office, students were assigned to different BMSI engineering teams operating across London and the South East, enabling them to spend time with our trained engineers on some of our leading sites.

 

This initiative is part of a drive within BMSI to give greater opportunity to young, motivated people interested in a career in electronics and/or electrical engineering to consider joining the BeMS industry.

 

BMSI MD, Jon Axten, discusses why the company are so dedicated to nurturing young talent at BMSI:

 

“Allowing students access to our  sites such as Heathrow Airport and Great Ormond Street Hospital, to experience first-hand the demands of keeping installed BeMS systems operating to optimum levels, was an absolute pleasure for the entire BMSI team to be involved in.

 

We have made a commitment to again appoint new Apprentices across our UK business later this year and we were interested to hear feedback from our work experience students particularly on what we need to do as an industry-leading employer to make sure the employment opportunities we offer are attractive to the best engineers of tomorrow, something which we are dedicated to ensuring.

 

It was also pleasing to hear feedback from our own experienced engineers about how they were energised sharing their knowledge and experience with young people who are keen to listen and learn. This event has been a great success for all concerned and one we will certainly look to repeat.”

Employee Series: Why work for BMSI?

Why work for BMSI?

Here at BMSI we pride ourselves on not only being a UK leader in the installation and contract servicing of specialist building controls, but also on being a reputable employer that is dedicated to developing, nurturing and supporting our staff at every level.

Providing our staff with a positive, balanced and compassionate working environment, coupled with a progressive career path that focuses on the development of the individual and the unified, nationwide expansion of the business, ensures that we attract, and retain, the highest calibre of staff in the industry.

To learn more about what it’s like to work at BMSI, we asked National Support Sales Manager, Jen Johnson, to explain what it was that attracted her to a career at BMSI.

Why BMSI:

“What first attracted me to make the move to BMSI was my genuine appetite for new technology and innovation that was clearly inherent in the very fibre of the company. This, coupled with the fact that the business offered REAL national coverage, meant that working for BMSI was a really appealing prospect for someone, like myself, who was looking to grow and develop their career within the industry.”

The culture:

“Luckily, I was fortunate enough to have worked with some of the senior management team before, so I knew that their management style was conducive to my own and that I was going into an environment that would be beneficial for myself and for the growing success of the company. What struck me most about the team at BMSI was the notion that the business was big enough to deliver but small enough to be dynamic – a truly valuable asset for a successful company who are navigating their rapid growth in the current climate of the industry.

I was instantly made to feel very welcome at BMSI and I have felt like part of the family since day one. Everyone works seamlessly together to achieve the same, overarching goals of the business, and the excitement of the entire team around developing new technologies is palpable – which is so inspiring to be around!”


Unique employer:

“What I find makes BMSI so unique as an employer is the stability and experience of the team and the genuine desire of senior management to focus on employee development, training and safety – employees are truly valued, which in turn means that all employees are truly invested in helping to drive the success of the company as a whole.

If I could give advice to anyone looking to join the team at BMSI, it would be to come and see it for yourself. Visit the offices and speak to the people who work here, you’ll be hard pushed to find someone who isn’t fulfilled by the work that they do. If you are looking to make a move career wise, I would say that if you’re someone who is passionate about progression and is open to developing exciting new ideas, then BMSI is definitely the place for you!”
