A Facilities Manager is the ultimate organiser, making sure that a workplace meets the needs of employees by managing all of the required services.

They will be responsible for the management of services and processes that support the core business of an organisation and ensuring a suitable working environment for its employees and their activities.

Facilities managers are involved in both strategic planning and day-to-day operations, particularly in relation to buildings and premises. Likely areas of responsibility include:

  • building and grounds maintenance;
  • cleaning;
  • catering and vending;
  • health and safety;
  • procurement and contract management;
  • security;
  • space management;
  • utilities and communications infrastructure.
