    Talking how does this sentence sound?

    These eight adverts required a facilities manager with a set number of years experience and specific qualifications but little else was described within the role for the job.

    sounds a bit messy?? should it be year's or maybe years' ?

    It should certainly be years' (with the apostrophe after the "s").

    It is a little messy. I would say "The eight jobs advertised all called for a facilities manager with specific qualifications and a specific number of years' experience. No other criteria for the roles were specified in the job adverts."
