Entries are still open for 'Facilities Manager of Year 2014', to be awarded as the highlight of this years glittering ceremony taking place in front of 1,200 FM professionals on 13 October at The Grosvenor House Hotel, Park Lane, London.
The BIFM Facilities Manager of the Year Award is a unique opportunity for an outstanding individual to be recognised, both in the UK and overseas, for their professionalism and contribution to facilities management.
As I am a previous winner, and now lead judge of the FM of the Year Award, my judging team and I are searching for exceptional individuals to enter this year's awards. We are looking for passionate individuals who are driven by customer service.
As with past award winners, this year's winner will be a role model, an exemplar of cutting-edge service delivery and will already have achieved notable successes both in their career and their involvement in the wider FM profession.
We are looking for leaders in the FM profession, at the top of their game, driving change and innovation, dedicated to exceptional levels of customer and knowledge of the core business, combined with an overriding understanding of the impact of FM in achieving the overall business objectives.
In particular, we will be looking for entrants to demonstrate their passion for the FM profession and the accomplishment of key objectives and initiatives during the past five years. Entrants must clearly identify how these initiatives were quantified and demonstrate the overall impact on the core business service delivery.
Entry submissions should also demonstrate the scale and challenges of the organisation, full details of FM interaction, particularly with BIFM and other recognised professional bodies, innovation and achievements, FM team training and development, goals for future career progression and how the entrant will continue to contribute to the FM profession in the future.
To win this award is a significant achievement in an individual's career. It is the recognition by the FM profession of both the capabilities and career successes of the winner. From personal experience I can say that winning the award will open doors to opportunities.
I am proud to have been invited again to judge this year's award, allowing me to give back to the profession that has given me so much.
Judging the category also enables me to meet the leading exponents of all that is good about our profession.
With time drawing to a close for entries for the 2014, if you think you may fit the above descriptions, but have some questions, or you know of an individual who should be encouraged to enter, please contact me, [email protected]
