Facility Operations and Maintenance Manager

Job Overview

An energy facility isn’t going to run itself. That’s where you come in. You handle all of the day-to-day activities needed to keep a facility running smoothly. You schedule and oversee the rest of the team and equipment needed to help run it. Are you a great multitasker? Can you see how the pieces of a puzzle come together to create the big picture? That could be a great foundation for this career.

Facility operations and maintenance managers plan, organize, direct, control and evaluate the day-to-day operations of a facility, excluding the pressurized systems which require a Power Engineer licence. Their work includes ensuring proper equipment is available and reliable, appropriate operations and maintenance (O&M) resources are available to support the facility, personnel are properly trained, and roles and responsibilities have been clearly communicated. They develop and implement maintenance management systems, and ensure health and safety programs and protocols are in place. Health and safety is an important function of this occupation.

Facility operations and maintenance managers must interact with plant personnel, external suppliers and corporate management. Computer applications for customer relationship management, project management, databases and time accounting are primary tools.
