Facilities Management Job Description:
In the field of facility management there are quite a few tiers and considerable variance in job titles too. This depends on the client as each organisation has their own preferred job titles. As a recruitment agency serving the facilities management sector we’ve seen them all. If you’re hiring you’ll need to draft a Facilities Manager Job Description.
Here are some of the key points you should consider with respect to job titles. For example, you might encounter titles you’d expect such as Facility Manager or the same facilities job could also be expressed as Facility Engineer. Another employer might be found listing the same job as Site Lead or even Technical Services Lead.
Those are some of the titles commonly used to describe the most senior level roles. Immediately beneath those there is another layer. Here are some of the job titles you’re likely to encounter: Assistant Facilities Manager and Facilities Assistant and Assistant Contract Support.
