Get recognised!

By joining BCS, you are setting yourself apart in a competitive industry. We have a number of tools that will enable you to do so.

Show the industry you're qualified

You’ve worked hard to get to where you are today, so why not show it? Highlight your commitment to the IT industry by using your BCS post nominals and logo on your LinkedIn profile, email signature and other communications. (Use of logo is solely for Professional members and above).


As a part of our ongoing efforts to improve your membership, you will now receive access to Springboard which offers you a number of tools to help you take charge of your own career development. It’s your personal career centre.


Personal Development Plan

The BCS Personal Development Planner is an online tool which allows members to keep a digital record of their Continuing Personal Development (CPD) so you can plan and manage your personal development goals. You can also record CPD activities such as coaching, mentoring, networking and interesting things you’ve learnt within the tool, helping you to evidence your ever-growing capabilities.



The Skills Framework for the Information Age (SFIA) is the industry recognised framework for IT knowledge, skills, and training. You can use Browse SFIAplus to explore the full framework and develop a plan for your own career development against the industry standard.

Recommending and Nominating a member allows you to put forward peers, individuals or colleagues that you feel would benefit from BCS membership. Help us increase our impact and make IT the profession of the future.
