Various locations need regular maintenance and upkeep in order to be usable by private institutions and the general public. These areas can range from public parks to company facilities. Overseeing these locations is often a site manager. The assistant site manager works under the head site manager, acting as the head when the site manager is not available.


The assistant site manager is responsible for all personnel related to the maintenance of a given site. Given that the maintenance of a given area can occasionally demand talent that the site personnel do not have, the assistant site manager is sometimes responsible for subcontracting. The site administration can be responsible for site design, budgeting, maintenance, security, and environmental health and safety. In order to ensure that the site is always functioning properly, the assistant site manager is responsible for setting up regular maintenance, according to Acorn Recruitment Ltd. All progress made when developing and managing the site must be documented.


Some of the assistant site manager's time is spent outside inspecting site maintenance, while the rest of the assistant site manager's time is spent in an office setting. In some positions, the assistant site manager has to travel to meet with various individuals such as property owners or event planners.


The assistant site manager usually has an educational background in civil or electrical engineering, according to Acorn Recruitment Ltd. Some positions expect that the assistant site manager have a background in construction management, according to Linsco. Business management, accounting, finance, real estate and public administration are also sometimes suitable for assistant site managers, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. This manager must also have thorough knowledge of all rules and regulations regarding private property and/or public works. Given that many individuals might be dependent on the proper functioning of a given site, the assistant site manager must be good at meeting deadlines. Computer skills and written communication skills are also needed for reporting.


According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the need for property managers is expected to grow by 8 per cent between 2008 and 2018. This growth is mostly driven by a rising population that will need a huge variety of services such as public works and businesses. Rising populations will also increase the wear and tear done to properties, which will lead to more site managers being employed to oversee repairs.


In 2008, the median earnings for property managers such as the assistant site manager were £29,984. The highest 10 per cent earned more than £66,462, and the lowest 10 per cent earned less than £14,209.
