Facilities Management (FM) is the total management of all services and infrastructure supporting an organisation's core business. It covers a complete range of assets and built environments and provides services across commerce, industry, and services across the public and private sectors. Estimated at more than £130 billion in the UK, the skills and training workers need in the industry are vast and varied.
Among the many technical skills, Health and Safety are critical training requirements in this sector. But, the wide range of knowledge and expertise required highlights lots of areas of development for workers in the sector and is regarded as a global leader in employment opportunities.
No one skill fits all in FM
The FM sector typically covers Hard and Soft Services.
Hard Services include the operational management of the physical facility or asset, such as Gas, plumbing and heating, HVAC systems, lighting, electrical, mechanical, fire safety systems, and building maintenance work.
Soft Services include security, grounds maintenance, landscaping, decorating, catering services (including vending machines and water coolers), cleaning services, pest control, waste management, car parking and workspace management.
