BIFM Awards 2015 - Rising Talent in Facilities Management
Tanya Horscroft, facilities manager with Capita Property & Infrastructure and BIFM Women In FM deputy chair, is the second recipient of the BIFM’s new Rising Talent award.
Horscroft (née Brick) is facilities manager with Capita Property & Infrastructure, and since July has been responsible for a portfolio of more than 45 properties in the City of London and the West End.
She entered FM as a floor manager for Johnson Controls’ Goldman Sachs account in London in 2011, later becoming a property services coordinator. She completed the internal Silver Leadership Academy (including Chartered Management Institute accreditation), Projects Academy, and IOSH Managing Safely Certificate.
In 2012 she moved to Norland Managed Services on its Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer (FBD) account as a customer service manager to learn more about M&E.
While there, she won the client’s Great Customer Service award, gaining the BIFM Level 4 Diploma and completing a NEBOSH award in Health and Safety at Work. She is on BIFM Rising FMs committee, and was BIFM Volunteer of the Year 2014.
Horscroft belongs to Women in the City and is a trustee for Volunteer Centre Greenwich. As well as spending time on Emcor’s M&G account as operations manager, she’s also served on both the BIFM’s Rising FMs and Women In FM committees - she was elected deputy chair of the latter in August this year.
Judges said they were impressed by Horscroft’s focus, dedication, understanding and commitment to promoting and inspiring others to choose FM as an exciting career option.
“We really enjoyed hearing Tanya’s rising story so far… She has true ambassadorial qualities, passion and stamina and has already made real positive impact and considerable contribution to her employer and the wider FM community,’ they added.
