Salaries vary depending on the sector, function and location and are highest in London and the South East.
The increase in public-private partnership funding has increased opportunities in facilities management and these projects are more likely to offer financial bonuses and better salary increases.
Working hours are generally 40 per week, though longer hours may be required on occasion to meet project deadlines or to cover emergencies. Some facilities management roles may require shift work in order to cover 24-hour operations. Meetings and visits may sometimes necessitate out-of-hours working.
Additional benefits often include a pension scheme, private health care, performance-related bonuses, company car or car allowance and profit share or share save schemes.
Women are slightly under represented in facilities management, but the BIFM - Women in FM special interest group helps with networking and development.
Opportunities exist all over the UK in both the public and the private sectors.
Travel during the working day may be required in order to visit different premises and absence from home overnight is sometimes necessary depending on the location you have to travel to.
Long-term projects may demand flexibility or relocation.
