We’re building an inclusive property industry. BPF Futures is a network of talented, junior-in-career professionals who are passionate about our industry and want to shape its future, while learning from each other and industry leaders.

Membership is open to anyone with fewer than 10 years’ experience in the property industry in Scotland and England.

As a BPF Futures member, you'll have access to BPF Futures LAUNCHPAD – a learning and development platform framed by four key pillars:

  • Influencing – giving you the chance to have your say
  • Learning – exploring projects and developments and examining key issues facing the industry
  • Mentoring – connecting you with senior leaders to help you navigate your career
  • Networking – helping you build relationships across the public and private sectors.

Join today and help shape a more positive future for the property industry.

Are you interested in shaping the future of the industry? To increase the participation of our BPF Futures members in the policy work of the SPF, we are inviting you to apply to join for one of SPF's committees or working group. We are looking to recruit at least two BPF Futures members to join each of the following:

  • Residential Investment Management   
  • Sustainability and Building Design  
  • Business Rates working group


Why become a committee member?

  • Our committees are an excellent way to deepen your understanding of the sector you work in.
  • Committees offer great networking opportunities. Membership often means you are also getting access to information, from the likes of Government, long before your peers.
  • It can also be a good way to raise your personal profile and be seen as an industry expert and leader.
  • Moving beyond the personal, you are also helping to shape the sector we all work in, how it goes about its business, and making its voice heard.
