David Sanderson CBIFM

Current position: Assistant Director of Estates, Keele University

Position whilst studying for BIFM Level 6 Certificate: Liverpool Heart & Chest NHS foundation Trust, Head of Estates & Facilities

BIFM Recognised Centre: Xenon Group

"Studying for a Level 6 qualification has provided me with a wider strategic view of the facilities industry. You can get embedded in your own organisation or sector especially as an in - house offering, and where you are not the core business, being able to advise your organisation strategically is the only way to add value and show the worth of FM in general.

The qualification has provided me with knowledge and new ideas. It has equally confirmed my current understanding of the FM industry.

Studying via distance learning, is a huge bonus as it provides flexibility. As FM’s we know that life doesn’t run 9-5, and opportunities to take stock are limited. It requires a lot of commitment and effort but the rewards far outweigh the work you have to produce. I would encourage anyone to undertake a qualification at the right level for you."
