Facilities Manager Courses

A Facilities Manager is in charge of the daily running of large facilities such as shopping centres, tourist attractions or sports facilities. You’ll make sure the facility is operating effectively with proper water, electricity and air conditioning and you will also have to organise key services like security and cleaners. You’ll ensure a facility is safe for visitors and staff and make sure all necessary regulations are met. You may have to promote the facility to customers or the public and you’ll sometimes organise extra support for special events.

Being a Facilities Manager means juggling many tasks at once so you’ll need to be good at multi-tasking. There’ll be a lot of administrative work involved so you’ll need to be good with office systems and equipment. A Facilities Manager needs excellent people skills and you’ll have to be very organised.
