salary survey 2015 1
  • FM World Salary Survey 2015This year's FM World Salary Survey involves a wider variety of facilities managers and a more even spread of FM employment types. And more importantly, as we report later in the magazine, there are signs of an increasingly dynamic employment market.
  • FM's changing demographicsThe stereotype of a facilities manager male, aged 40 to 60, from a trade or M&E background no longer rings true, as our survey demonstrates.
  • Gradual growth in pay ratesWhile the variety has increased, the number of FMs completing our 2015 salary survey has remained stable as have the rates at which their levels of pay have risen.
  • Switching employersWhen weighing up whether to stay with an employer or strike out elsewhere, facilities managers are increasingly likely to rank their desire to challenge themselves ahead of the size of their pay and bonus packages.
