Salaries rising but job security is a concern

12 May 2008

According to the latest FM Salary Survey from FRL, salaries are still rising across the FM skill base, but particularly for those with building services maintenance skills. However, many FMs don't feel secure in their jobs in these times of 'credit crunch'

Professional recruitment and HR services provider, Facilities Recruitment Limited (FRL), has produced its fourth annual salary survey this week. The survey looked at staff employed within the FM sector in Executive & Facilities Management positions; Hard Services (Building Services Maintenance); and Soft Services (Front of House)

The survey results illustrated that salary levels are still rising, and overall for the three different disciplines by an average 5.07%. The highest percentile increase was for hard services where the average salary rise was 5.97%.

The average salaries for the key roles were:

Facilities Manager

Commenting upon the results, FRL CEO John Davis, commented; “Yet again we are seeing salaries increasing due to the effects of the skills shortage; however what has to be taken into consideration is the increased fear amongst the respondents in regards to the instability of their employment. Far more respondents than previously (18%) stated their view that their employment was unstable, probably all down to the contagion relating to the credit crunch. This is a little bit of a misnomer as many of our clients are reporting new outsourced contracts wins and require quite large scale numbers of additional staff.”
