  • Full time
  • £23,000
  • Home based part of the working week and partly in the FMB Scotland office in Edinburgh.
  • Closing 1st October 2021

Job Purpose: To play a key part in helping the FMB meet its membership growth strategies by recruiting quality building companies who will benefit from FMB membership, and in retaining those members for the long term. In addition, the postholder will help to generate commercial income as part of the FMB’s commercial strategy.

This role has dual reporting lines, to both the Scotland Director and New Member Recruitment Manager, reflecting the varied nature of the responsibilities.

The role is expected to be split, with 60% of time devoted to new member recruitment activities, and 40% to existing member engagement and regional support activities.

For information, the FMB has introduced a new hybrid working policy to help recruit and retain the best people. Supporting high performing teams and creating a positive work environment, including with greater flexibilities, will in turn deliver the FMB’s business objectives.

The hybrid working policy and will operate until the end of the year. The policy will be reviewed, and we expect formal hybrid working arrangements to start in January 2022. Conversations about other forms of flexible working will follow in the new year.

Attached is the job description and below is more information about the FMB.

About the FMB

The Federation of Master Builders (FMB) is the UK’s largest trade association for the construction industry. We have a proud history of supporting and promoting small and medium-sized building companies – including sole traders – across England, Northern Ireland, Scotland, and Wales, since we were established in 1941.

We are champions of quality construction work and we advocate for continuous improvement in building standards. Before they can join the FMB, our members must go through a strict vetting process and independent inspection of their work, to ensure they meet the high standards expected of a Master Builder company. Not all builders pass the test.

We provide a wide range of business support services to help Master Builders to promote, protect and grow their business. We connect clients with professional, local builders they can trust. We build better as an industry through collaboration with government and industry partners.

We are a not-for-profit organisation run by members for members, which means membership fees are re-invested into supporting and promoting Master Builders.
