Facilities Management

Facilities management is a profession dedicated to supporting people. It ensures the functionality, comfort, safety, sustainability and efficiency of the built environment - the buildings we live and work in and their surrounding infrastructure. Facility managers are the people who make sure we have the safest and best experience possible, by coordinating the processes that make the built environment succeed.

While no prior experience is necessary, Facilities Managers often have experience in construction trades, project management, business, IT, architecture, engineering, or sustainability.
