The Worshipful Company of Pattenmakers has opened nominations for its annual Young Manager Award to find a talented young FM deserving of the training and development opportunities it provides.

The award is open to managers aged 21-32 working in the FM sector, who must be nominated by their employer. The deadline for submission of entries is November 11.

Employers may nominate more than one young manager from their organisation.

Shortlisted finalists must be available for interview on November 29 in London.

Bespoke development

The winner of the Pattenmaker Young Manager Award receives expert support to create a varied and bespoke personal development programme, including off-site courses and a programme of customised work placements designed to broaden their perspective. The training programme will be developed in full consultation with the winner’s line manager or employer. There is also a small financial bursary kindly donated by FM consultancy Glennister Associates.

 

RICS

The Young Manager Award enjoys industry-wide support, including from the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS). A spokesperson said: “RICS supports the Pattenmakers’ Young Manager Award as it, like RICS, promotes the highest professional qualifications and standards and continuing professional development.  We hope that this award will enable and encourage the winner to reach their full potential in the facilities management profession.” 

 

Pattenmakers’ banquet

The Award will be presented to the winner by the Lord Mayor of London at the Pattenmakers’ Annual Banquet held at the Mansion House in January 2020. The winner will also receive the Freedom of the Company, with the opportunity to apply for the Freedom of the City of London at a later stage.
