The FM Careers Conference 2014

The Facilities Management Careers Conference 2014, hosted by the British Institute of Facilities Management (BIFM) Rising FMs Special Interest Group, has been confirmed for 10 July at the University of the Arts London building.

At the FM Careers Conference (which is free to attend), delegates have the opportunity to meet and network with employers, recruiters, training providers, consultants and other professionals who can assist them on their career journey. Delegates will also get the opportunity to attend a number of exciting keynote presentations, talks and workshop sessions. It is open to everyone within, or interested in careers in FM. All ages and experience will be catered for, from school pupils to career switchers.

The event aims to continue the work of BIFM in making facilities management a career of choice, attracting new talent to the FM profession, demonstrating the clear progression pathways which exist and showing the global breadth of opportunity the profession offers. It will also address FM careers in the future - looking at what skillsets are required, considering the emerging and developing careers in FM.

Chair of Rising FMs, Jason Gurd, said: “FM is a very dynamic profession and the purpose of the Rising FMs SIG is to make facilities management accessible to everyone that seeks to embrace it - the Careers Conference is central to that, engaging with a wide audience to demonstrate the opportunities on offer in FM and how to get into the profession. It also gives a great platform to support those already working in FM and ready to progress.”
