Careers at the BCA
Why work with us?
We are a progressive, ambitious professional membership body, focussed on doing the very best for our 1500 members and for the chiropractic profession more widely. We cover the same ground as a much larger organisation, but in a more responsive and compressed timescale. For example, during the pandemic, we have been able to advise our members on every aspect of the challenges they face, with our small team and an active Board, when some other professions we work with have had the support of hundreds of staff. This makes our work exciting, fast-paced and very rewarding. Working for the BCA will expose staff to all the key functions of management, at a hands-on level of detail, such that they can advance their skills more rapidly and diversely than would be possible in a bigger team. We are flexible and willing to consider adjusting roles to suit individual capabilities, and to extend responsibilities to those who seek advanced development.
If you’re motivated, professional, enjoy doing your work well and gain job satisfaction from being part of a friendly team who value quality output and a can-do attitude, you will enjoy working with us.
About the BCA
Chiropractic is a regulated profession and we represent our members’ interests to the General Chiropractic Council, the profession’s regulatory body. You can learn more about the GCC here.
Within chiropractic, the education arm, responsible for maintaining professional knowledge, is provided by the Royal College of Chiropractors (RCC) with whom we also have a close working relationship.
We work closely with other professions in the Musculoskeletal disorder (MSK) sphere, through the Arthritis and Musculoskeletal Alliance (ARMA) and you can read more about this group here.
Internationally, we are very active members of the World Federation of Chiropractic (WFC).
