Facilities Management (FM) professionals are primarily concerned with operational use of buildings and premises, aligned to the core business activities of the organisations utilising these spaces.
Facilities Managers need to be able to integrate and align the non-core services, including those relating to premises, required to operate and maintain a business to fully support the core objectives of the organisation. Facilities Managers need to have specialist knowledge relating to the management of workplaces, assets, maintenance, and support services.
They need to have the appropriate business skills to understand how businesses work and operate, in order to ensure they function to the best of their ability whilst adhering to all applicable legal issues and policies.
One of the main motivators for studying FM is the global nature of the discipline, to which FM is an internationally recognised profession. Moreover, FM is required in almost every industry, with the need to outsource specialist facilities services growing every year.
