Annual salary survey report (U.K)


FMs working in-house versus those from outsourced service providers by FMWORLD

That figure has been stubbornly fixed at around 65/35 in favour of the former for years. For 2015, however, we can point to a slight rebalancing – it’s now a 60/40 split.

What’s more, the number of industry sectors represented in this year’s survey continue to dazzle in terms of sheer diversity, showing a further increase in the number of sectors, with FMs from the oil, chemicals and engineering sectors right through to transport, leisure, healthcare and retail. This really is a broad spread, helping to further debunk any stereotype about facilities management as a purely office-based discipline.

Of course, plenty of office-based sectors are represented. FMs from finance, banking and legal firms continue to make up the largest cohort of respondents (albeit at 12 per cent, a smaller percentage than last year), and we’ve seen 10 per cent from engineering, construction and manufacturing, 6 per cent retail, 5 per cent health care and more than 10 per cent from the charity and non-profit sectors.

There’s also been a broadening out of the size of company represented in the poll, with 52 per cent employed at firms employing more than 1,000 people. That figure was up at 58 per cent last year, and we’ve seen a corresponding increase in the number of FMs at companies employing between 201 and 1,000 people.

As for gender balance, the response mirrors the anecdotal evidence from recruitment agencies suggesting that, gradually, women are comprising an ever-growing percentage of the FM workforce. Last year the split was 70/30 in favour of men, this year 66/34. A small change, perhaps, but a welcome one.
