4th October 2017: OA Event – Facilities Management Workshop – York

Are you considering transitioning into a Facilities Management role but unsure of what it would look like in a civilian context? Are you wondering how your skills and experience gained in the military can provide value to civilian organizations? Then this workshop is for you.

Hosted by Portakabin at their Head Quarters in York, the goal of this workshop is to provide insight into the breadth of opportunities in Facilities Management across different sectors including understanding of different aspects of the role. It also aims to support job seekers in their preparations for applying for Facilities Management positions – including identification of relevant military experience and skills, understanding qualifications and training, and the opportunity to ask questions to a recruitment panel.

Job seekers will also have the opportunity to engage with veterans, managers and recruiters currently employed in Facilities Management roles, and employers will have the opportunity to meet officers and gain understanding into how they could fit into their current or future recruitment strategies.


Testimonials from those who attended previous facilities management workshops:

“A thoroughly worthwhile event, i needed an insight into the world of FM and the transferable skills that i had. I found the comments made by all of the speakers to be enlightening and hope that the contacts made at the event will be useful in my search for a role in the future.”

“Overall this was a very good and well organised event. I will certainly recommend friends to attend future events.”

“This was an extremely informative event, well run and aimed specifically at the officer.”
