Welcome to the 2016 facilities management salary survey from leading specialist recruitment firm, Maxwell Stephens.
This year's salary survey has provided valuable and useful insights for everyone in the facilities management sector, employee and employer alike.
The sector is still male-dominated. In our 2014 questionnaire, 23% of respondents were female. This time, it's down to 20.5%. That said, 48% of FM professionals were female. This suggests that there is much greater gender equality on the ground.
FM is a demanding role continuing to attract people who like to be challenged. The participants enjoy the variety of work offered. Most respondents accept that working out-of-hours is part of the job - it's something they knew about before entering the field.
“ It's an industry people stay in. 85% of those taking part had been employed for 6 years or more in FM. 80% of them were happy in their current position. ”
