You can apply as an individual or as a partial or complete team of up to 6 individuals from different professional backgrounds, from the same or different organisations.
The TeamBuild administrators and Trustees can provide helpful advice by email about participating in the competition and assist with the formulation of your multi-disciplinary team.
In your application form you should include a brief personal profile (max 100 words) and a statement of not more than 200 words, outlining your reasons for applying and what you would like to gain from participating in TeamBuild, either individually or collectively as a Team.
TeamBuild organisers will assess the submitted application forms and from these select the participants and formulate the inter-disciplinary teams for the annual competition (generally 9 teams of 6 different professional disciplines and experiences in each).
The organisers may contact applicants with any queries and may propose changes to the submitted teams to ensure a wide range of professional backgrounds and skills are represented within each team.
All applicants will be notified of the outcome of the selection process by 11th October 2019 and those selected invited to register for TeamBuild 2019 with pre-payment of the fee by 25th October 2019. Confirmation of successful registration and detailed information about the competition week-end will be issued on completion of this process.
There are generally more applicants than there are spaces available, therefore selection to participate is a significant achievement. Early application is therefore highly recommended.
Finding and getting to know your fellow team members, from different professional disciplines, is a key part of preparing for TeamBuild. You can start by seeking the support of your employer/manager, informing them about the competition, your desire to take part and asking if they would support your participation as part of your professional development and perhaps other colleagues too within your organisation.
Ask to be put in touch with other areas or disciplines in your organisation or other organisations you work with, as you will need a diverse skill set from different professions to form an effective team. You will need a multi-professional team, so chances are you will need to make contact with other companies to create a well-balanced dynamic team that could include architects, designers, engineers, surveyors, contractors, project managers, landscape architects, property agents and construction lawyers.
If you are finding it difficult to complete your team, get in contact with us firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll do our best to help and put you in touch with other applicants seeking to complete a team.
You can always enter as an individual, or partial team, and we will help to assemble a complete team.
On notification of your successful registration for TeamBuild 2019, you will be issued with information about the other members of your team, the competition format, the construction project scenario and pre-preparation of the 1st Task will be issued by 11th October 2019.
It is recommended that team members make contact with each other as soon as possible. Also set up their group communications and contacts and then organise their collective preparation for Task 1.
Each team needs to submit a profile of their team, including their proposed name, any logo and strap-lines for their Team by 25th October 2019. This will be included in the briefing information issued at the beginning of the TeamBuild Competition weekend. This will include similar information for all the competing teams, along with the brief personal profiles and photos of individual team members, provided in your original application form.Back to Future Leaders Competition
