FM World has launched its annual salary survey, with BIFM members and site visitors invited to take part.
The questionnaire takes just 10 minutes to complete online.
It asks about basic salary, bonus and benefits, and the issues that matter most to FMs in the development of their careers.
Readers who complete the survey will be entered into a free draw to win £250.
’s last salary survey at the end of 2010 established that security and good career prospects were uppermost in the minds of respondents. Salaries were fairly static, with just 37 per cent reporting an annual increase and 36 per cent reporting no increase at all.
Client-side facilities professionals were more likely to have received a pay rise than their supply side counterparts. Bonuses, too, were in decline – almost 45 per cent received no bonus. Those FMs who did receive one found it was smaller than in previous years.
Contrasts were also identified in what client and supply side facilities managers saw as key issues, while more women than men cited ‘challenging roles’ as of major importance.
The 2012 survey is being launched during a time of unprecedented economic flux. FM World
readers are invited to help build a complete and accurate picture of salary packages across the sector.
The deadline for completing the survey is Friday, 2 March. Results will be published in April.
All your answers will be treated as confidential and not disclosed to anyone who isn't connected to the survey. Results will be analysed only in aggregate form by an independent data analysis provider. Those who complete the survey will not receive any communication from other firms.
