Facilities Management Jobs Overview
Facilities managers are integral workers at large and small organizations. They work hard behind the scenes maintaining buildings and overseeing administrative tasks. Most facilities managers work in an office but also do regular maintenance checks and supervise groundskeeping activities or other workers throughout and around the building. The number of facilities management jobs is expected to rise by 6% over the next 10 years while companies try to reduce their impact on the environment—it's the facilities manager's task to improve a building's energy efficiency.
As a facilities manager, you'll have a wide range of responsibilities. You'll oversee the building and grounds maintenance, supervise workers, and schedule repairs or renovation projects. You'll also contact vendors and contractors, double-check their work, and communicate workplace safety procedures to employees. Other tasks include recordkeeping, mail distribution, accounting, and budgeting along with ensuring security and emergency preparedness and keeping the building clean according to company policies.
