About BCF Technology


What is it like to work for BCF Technology

Leadership
Leadership
The team are true leaders of innovation in changing the way vets work, and continue to lead and inspire the team with how vets use ultrasound. The senior team have developed values that deliver more than simply financial rewards - if they look after the long-term relationship with their customers and continue to add value, then the revenue will follow. Learning is a value of the company, not only through the training of their customers but through commitment to development of BCF employees. Such is the commitment to drive this learning through the business, the Directors employed a Learning & Development Manager six years ago to ensure this happens and further staff development opportunities are encouraged where staff have cross developed, e.g. an IT Engineer becoming Service Manager and a UK Account Manager becoming the MD of their Indian business. The Directors are all extremely approachable to everyone at BCF and take a real interest in the lives of those who work with them.
Wellbeing
Wellbeing
Understanding that a happy BCF team is the pre-requisite for an engaged team, the company work at making BCF a place that people enjoy working at. This includes the introduction of flexi-time, subsidised gym membership and monthly themed lunch-time get-togethers. They have invested heavily in creating a stimulating working environment, including a very popular break-out area where the team can play pool, darts, table football, table tennis. There is a space where people are comfortable, can relax away from the work desk environment and can catch up with fellow employees. There are a number of other areas where they help their team for example with flexible working hours, subsidised gym membership, fruit baskets, cycle to work, childcare vouchers and life assurance cover. They have developed teams focused on Wellbeing, Community and Enjoyment, focusing their efforts on making BCF a great place to be. Quite a few are sporty and regular evening events include mountain biking.
Giving Something Back
Giving Something Back
Dragons Glen is an event created by the Scottish Charity, Children First. Teams are provided with a small fund and challenged to create a business and within 6 months return as much money as possible. Two teams from BCF entered and their Managing Director also contributed by being a Dragon for another team. One BCF team created a company making and selling T-shirts and the other team created, manufactured and sold a board game, 'Escape the Jungle'. They managed to raise over £7,000 for the charity and won awards for the Most Innovative Idea and Most Future Promise. Head office have been involved in helping to create a better environment for some children locally. A local after school club was in desperate need of some care and attention and staff worked for two days painting the entire building. Additionally they donated £700 from their BCF Foundation charity to help with equipment. For the past five years they have supported a group of equipine vets, all keen on motorcycling. They deliver educational talks to raise funds for charities. The company has hosted the Scottish leg of their UK and Ireland tour and donated a brand new x-ray system worth over £17,000 which will be used at the Gambia Horse and Donkey trust. They also sponsor the Vet Charity Challenge, helping raise over £100,000 for animal based charities.
