For now, 75% of the position will be spent as a Service Manager and 25% as an Area Facilities Manager. Thereafter, the Area Facilities Manager responsibilities will grow along with the market, with a full transition from Service Manager to Area Facilities Manager when the portfolio reaches the appropriate size. Candidates should also review the Service Manager job description. Working for Equity Residential means being part of a community – employees and residents – striving to provide the best in apartment living, speaking boldly about new ideas for innovation, and inspiring creativity in the ways we live and work. That's what our Be.Think.Play.Live. culture is all about. Our Area Facilities Managers are strong, dynamic team leaders with a passion for employee engagement and a strong focus on coaching performance that drives resident satisfaction and financial results. As an Area Facilities Manager, you will assist the regional leadership and property team members in implementing and executing various procedures, programs, and initiatives related to the overall facilities operations of properties, provide direction to property teams, and will be accountable for your portfolio's overall business results — which include an emphasis on customer service, employee performance, and the implementation of corporate initiatives.

You will lead maintenance initiatives throughout your portfolio, exemplifying Equity Residential's brand each and every day by thinking like an owner and ensuring that your team members have the resources they need to be successful and to deliver on our resident commitments. At Equity, being a leader is much more than sitting in an office directing others from behind a computer screen; we believe in leading by example and walking in the shoes of the people you manage. To be a successful Area Facilities Manager, you will spend more time in the field than in the corporate office — walking your properties with Service Managers and Community Managers and supplementing your already robust knowledge of your communities, competitors, and market conditions with direct feedback and input of all on-site team members. You will also leverage your strengths in relationship building on a daily basis, partnering with colleagues across all levels and departments of the organization (Property Management, Investments, HR, Capital/Renovation, etc.) with the shared goal of maximizing the potential of property employees and asset performance in your region.
