Taking an opportunity to represent BCS

Being a Membership assessor supports the profession and helps me learn more about the ways others achieve Chartered Engineer and Incorporated Engineer registration. The role has also given me the opportunity to join one of the Engineering Council committees, on behalf of BCS. The Quality Assurance Committee reviews and approves the processes used by all professional engineering bodies for making Chartered Engineer and Incorporated Engineer awards. I think software engineering should be an engineering discipline which aims for product innovation, with predictable levels of quality when defined resources are available and these  insights might help me further my agenda for the software sector to be a fully-fledged engineering discipline. 

Giving back to the community

To give back to the communityI’ve enjoyed the role immensely over the last six years and have never failed to be surprised at the sheer breadth of our industry and the depth of knowledge and experience in some outstanding applicants. It's also been a pleasure to work closely with some very professional and experienced peers. For anyone considering becoming an assessor, I would recommend it wholeheartedly as an excellent way of giving back to the community and developing personal skills.
