The Zone Manager is the key individual in the Maintenance Operations organization who interacts between department and the campus community. The Zone Manager is responsible for and supervises the operation of a zone crew of six to fourteen multi-craft or craft-oriented bargaining unit employees who provide maintenance to an assigned section of the campus that vary in size up to over 1.5 million square feet. The Zone Manager also manages small and medium size Facilities-related projects in that area from the conceptual phase to implementation. The Services Manager has a similar level of responsibility, also supervising technical and/or union employees, and typically oversees projects with more complexity and higher costs, but otherwise the Services Manager role shares the same expectations as Zone Manager (unless a separate job description has been created).
