Facility Manager: Run facilities and preserve value.

At SBB Real Estate, you support the development and management of 793 railway stations, 3500 buildings and 3700 properties and sites in the vicinity of the railway. 

You regularly check the condition of our properties and ensure effective infrastructure facility management (maintenance and cleaning) and safeguard building technology (plumbing, electrics, heating, etc.). While doing so you continuously interact with tradespersons, suppliers, customers or tenants.


In addition to performing maintenance and repair work in buildings, you are responsible for maintaining facilities, technical equipment, machines and vehicles. You help your supervisors define preventive maintenance measures and support site management teams by pointing out important safety-related work that needs to be done.  You ensure that facilities, technical equipment and machines remain in perfect operating condition at all times and you report any damage or defects directly to the responsible department or unit. You also accompany and supervise external suppliers when they are carrying out scheduled and unscheduled work in and around the building. 

My team and I make an effort every day to ensure SBB customers can enjoy clean and comfortable stations.

Safeguard building technology.

As facility manager, you oversee the building functions and technology and check the maintenance plan, including required proof. You carry out small repairs and maintenance work on the HVAC (heating, ventilation, air conditioning, plumbing and electrics) technical systems in the building. You also obtain quotes and supervise tradespeople on site. The requirements to become a technical caretaker are basic technical HVAC training and further training as a maintenance professional. 

My experiences in other sectors have given me a comprehensive picture of where we are now and what SBB’s mission is.
