“I am excited about the AIT-LIT Consortium. This will hopefully futureproof higher education for our communities and will provide new opportunities.”
As the facilities services coordinator, I work in the Facilities and Estates Department at Limerick Institute of Technology. My role is to manage a variety of services across the five LIT campuses. The services include cleaning, security, waste and landscaping on each of the campuses.
I joined LIT in January 2020 having gained 10 years’ experience in the facilities management industry throughout a variety of sectors. Initially, my core focus was to streamline these services to ensure that we are getting the best performance possible and efficiencies from these facilities service contracts.
There was nothing that could have prepared us for the COVID-19 pandemic, but we rallied together as a team to respond to the challenge in many diverse and impactful ways. Working alongside the LIT estates team and other departments has been a huge learning curve, and it’s a testament to what can be achieved by information sharing, education, experience and hard work.
I am excited about the AIT-LIT Consortium. This will hopefully futureproof higher education for our communities and will provide new opportunities, employment and learning experiences across the Midlands and Mid-West.
