Paul Carder, Co-founder Occupiers Journal Ltd, Publisher of Work&Place; Tutor at the University of the West of England


Paul has recently moved into academia, as a Tutor and PhD researcher at the University of the West of England, in Bristol, UK. His research will be of interest to developers of alternative workspace, as it will focus on attracting people. His draft PhD title is “PLACEMAKER: the role of corporate real estate (CRE) departments, in creating and managing sustainable and effective places, to attract and retain employees”. It will apply scenario thinking to the future of work and workscapes.

Paul is co-founder of, its ‘Chief Networking Officer’, and Publisher of Work & Place, the periodical journal for workplace strategists. He formed the many groups that carry the Occupiers Journal name, and built a global network largely using LinkedIn. Paul now maintains an active network of over 30,000 professionals in CRE, FM and Workplace fields around the world.

Paul has specialised in comparative analysis between occupier organisations and their CRE & FM supply chains, drawing on over twenty years of experience in the corporate workplace and facilities management fields. Prior to forming Occupiers Journal, Paul worked with Advanced Workplace Associates in the UK to create and build the “Workplace Performance Innovation Network”. His prior experience also included in-house roles at Barclays Bank, International Director at IPD Occupiers, work with several global FM suppliers, and consulting/advisory roles. His core experience spans client research, workplace strategy, performance management and supplier management. Paul has written many papers for Workplace and FM journals, and spoken at conferences on corporate real estate, FM and performance management, around the world.

Paul has four children (two boys and two girls) and splits his time between St. Ives, near Cambridge, and his University role in Bristol. He also goes off-grid and walks with his dog in the Dartmoor National Park, his real home.
