Facilities Management 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.
The course also offers a sandwich route which involves a paid placement where you can apply what you have learnt at LJMU out in the workplace. Such experience will enhance both your professional skills development and your CV, boosting your employment prospects after graduation.
Students not undertaking a placement year are registered on the non-Sandwich version of the programme and will have the opportunity of an additional study year abroad following Level 5, providing students with an additional year of study at an approved overseas partner that will complement their programme at LJMU.
