 Essentially, the facilities manager or management team will implement various structures and processes which not only help companies of all sizes function correctly but help keep staff safe too, so let’s delve a little deeper into this area of expertise.



Strategic planning and day-to-day operation



Facility management duties differ between organisations depending on the nature of the company. However, managers tend to be involved in both strategic planning and day-to-day operations. So, as well as thinking up ways to cut costs while increasing productivity, facility managers might also be tasked with ordering stock, be it primer from RawlinsPaints or rails of high-fashion clothes. Of course, many companies can’t function properly without the relevant inventory making this a very important task.



Maintenance and repairs



Facility manager job descriptions can vary but responsibilities tend to include maintenance and repairs particularly in relation to buildings and premises. Facility managers might be assigned a certain area to take care of, or be responsible for, the entire site – depending on how big the space is. Managers might be required to carry out repairs themselves, or call in the relevant firms to get the job done quickly and efficiently, all while not disturbing the staff or blowing too much company money.
