What is FM And what does a facility manager actually do?

Facility management jobs are for highly qualified professionals - mostly academics who have completed a facility management degree. They are not involved in building management themselves. Facility managers are not caretakers! Rather, they are looking for suitable providers for work that occurs, such as building cleaning or energy management. They manage the operation of the buildings and ensure that they can be used and managed efficiently. Facilities management jobs are something for real all-rounders, because the area of ​​responsibility is extensive. For the facility manager training, technical as well as organizational as well as commercial skills are useful. The smooth running of the entire technical infrastructure only works if the relationships are known and an overview is maintained. The infrastructure includes energy and gas supply, internet, post, waste disposal, sewage, roads, bike paths and sidewalks. The maintenance of these areas is carried out by various service providers, such as B. electrical engineers, cleaning service providers or security providers. To coordinate this, you need a personality who can lead and delegate. You need good judgment and decision-making skills as well as self-organization.
