Want to support service veterans? Join our new Network's committee
16 August 2023
Following our recent announcement that we are expanding our community groups with IWFM Networks, we are pleased to confirm we are preparing to launch the IWFM Veterans in FM Network. As part of these preparations, we are seeking passionate volunteers to fill a handful of positions on the committee.
This offers a unique chance to play a pivotal role in shaping how the Network will deliver its objectives of providing a career route for service leavers, reservists and supporting veterans, and helping them advance in the workplace and facilities management profession.

Once appointed, volunteer committee members will:

IWFM Veterans in FM Network Deputy Chair Alistair Scott said:
‘Let's collectively move away from "falling into FM" and instead make workplace and facilities management a career of choice. There is a lot of collaborative work ahead to truly realise the potential of this newly formed professional Network. Together, we can make a real difference to armed forces veterans and the profession itself.’
Don't miss out on this fantastic opportunity to make a real impact on the industry. We look forward to hearing from you.
