A contest to find the most dynamic new facilities managers in the country is being launched today by FM World.
The aim is to find and bring into the spotlight the many talented managers making their mark on organisations and facilities across the UK.
The search, which will culminate in a major feature in FM World and an event at the Heron Tower in London, will focus on practising facilities managers whether in-house or employed through an outsourced service provider.
There is no age limit on those that can be nominated, and those recognised will have shown the most innovation and initiative in the supply of facilities services.
Nominees will be judged by a panel comprising the reigning BIFM facilities manager of the year Chris Stoddart, the editor of FM World Martin Read and members of the BIFM’s Rising FMs sig.
The remaining judges will be announced later this month. The search is being sponsored by Office Depot, a leading supplier of office products and solutions to the facilities sector.
To nominate an individual for ‘rising star’ status, readers are invited to email firstname.lastname@example.org with the name and details of the person they wish to put forward.
Nominations can come from colleagues, consultants or other people at the organisations for whom the individual has worked.
Those nominating will then be contacted to find out more about the candidate, including why they are so deserving of recognition, what kind of work they’ve done and any other projects they’re involved with.
The nomination process will be open throughout March and April.
