'Careers in FM' on TV
To mark the development of Higher Level Apprenticeships in Facilities Management BIFM, together with the Consortium Party, has contributed to a television programme called ‘Careers in FM’. The programme includes contributions from Asset Skills, Sheffield Hallam, Westminster Kingsway College, The Manchester College, Leeds College of Building and The Training & Learning Company.
The programme includes insights from Ruby McGregor-Smith, CEO of Mitie, the FM team at the Co-Operative who showcase how FM influenced the design of their new headquarters in Manchester and tips from Hays Recruitment on what companies are looking for when recruiting FMs.
Most importantly the programme highlights what the role of an FM is. A number of FMs from a wide range of companies were interviewed, talking about how they got into FM, what they consider to be the main skill set of an FM, the benefit of studying a professional qualification and the impact that that has had on their career.
