Frequently Asked Questions

You can find answers to some of the most frequently asked questions here, so feel free to send us a message if you do not find what you are looking for.
What Is Facility Management?
Facilities management or facility management is a professional discipline related to the delivery of logistics related to property. This is a wide-reaching role that incorporates elements of functionality, safety, comfort, and efficiency under one umbrella. The facilities manager makes sure that built environments are working correctly and are well-suited to the needs of the inhabitants. They also help to make sure facilities are working efficiently, allowing companies to save money on running costs.

The facilities management team plays a big role in operating costs by optimising the use of a company's most valuable asset, property. They support your staff to be as productive as possible while also staying safe. Facilities managers are also responsible for monitoring and reducing your environmental impact where possible. And finally, they leverage the technology available to make your workplace as efficient as possible. This could include introducing smart technology to the workplace or finding ways to automate important tasks. So getting the right recruitment process in place is key.
What Is Facilities Management In Construction?
While facilities managers are responsible for making sure that workplaces are functional and fit for purpose, a construction site facilities management role would entail different priorities. In construction, the primary concern would be safety followed by sustainability. From a strategic standpoint, the facilities manager would also be responsible for optimising the use of equipment and machinery, ensuring that everything is in working order and safe to use.

While it has always been an important role, the facilities manager job has grown into a vital role in the construction sector to help streamline and make sites more efficient and cost-effective.

Facilities managers may be required to use Building Information Modelling (BIM) to ensure that design and construction stages have all of the operation needs and requirements met. Advances in technology allow facilities management in construction to focus on streamlining operations to maximise efficiency.

Facilities managers in the construction sector can be involved in any number of activities, including space management, ensuring safety and security, sustainability, project management, quality assessment, support services and budget management. So start your recruitment process today.
Why Is Facilities Management So Important?
Facilities management has always been a vital role, but as expectations from our built environment have expanded and grown in recent years, it has become increasingly important that someone is there to take the lead on organising building, assets and space. While the facilities manager might not carry out all tasks on their own, they are pivotal in organising teams and ensuring work is completed to the highest possible standard. While everyone in an organisation is there to do a specific job, the facilities manager is there to ensure they are all communicating and working together effectively.

With the increase in reliance on technology in the workplace, it has become more important than ever to centralise services for maximum efficiency. Facilities management professionals help to keep buildings connected with the latest technology and push for greater sustainability. Without this essential role, these tasks would be passed between departments and ultimately run the risk of not having sufficient oversight. When this happens, running costs increase, safety standards fall, and efficiency is impacted. As we are a recruitment specialist we can maske sure recruitment process in any of the facilities sector goes as smooth as possible.
How To Become A Facilities Manager
To become a facilities manager you will need to possess a number of key skills, including communication skills, business management, administration, attention to detail, knowledge of accounting, a calm demeanour and the ability to work well with others. Many of these skills can be taught by studying for an undergraduate degree in facilities management. You could also enter the industry as an apprentice. As an apprentice, you will have the opportunity to study while you work and will gain valuable on-the-job experience.

Work experience is essential for getting into this industry, as you will need to show an understanding of what is expected in the role. You could apply for internships or work experience with companies with facilities management departments to help bolster your skills and applications. Some people find they are able to work their way into a facilities manager role by starting in an assistant role, or by applying knowledge from other industries to the role.
What Industry Is Facilities Management?
Facilities management isn’t restricted to just one industry and in many ways is its own industry. The employer that you choose will determine the industry that you work in, and that could include engineering, construction, manufacturing, public services, healthcare, leisure and entertainment, and private offices. Within the different industries that require the services of facilities managers, there are also different disciplines within the role.
It is a very varied role, and typical day-to-day tasks could include:

Building maintenance
Grounds maintenance
Cleaning
Waste removal
Catering
Health and safety
Procurement and contract management
Security
Communications infrastructure
Space management
Business continuity

Success in this sector relies on the individual being able to take initiative and adapt to many different roles. There are often conflicting demands in the workplace, which means facilities managers need to be able to assess the situation calmly and make a decision quickly. The ability to think of your feet is essential, no matter what industry you are working in.
How Do I Become A Certified Facility Manager?
