The structural timber industry continues to go from strength to strength with timber being increasingly specified as the preferred structural component of choice for a diverse range of building types. To help customers and specifiers realise the benefits of structural timber systems, the STA has implemented the STA Assure Membership and Quality Standards Scheme and is looking to appoint a STA Assure Director to lead the development and implementation of the programme.

Working collaboratively with industry stakeholders, the STA Assure Director will be responsible for defining the standards required by STA Assure for both existing and emerging markets and will promote the benefits of adopting STA Assure to specifiers, industry stakeholders and customers.
