Generally when a techinical or otherwise speicialist position is advertised with an 'ITIL' bullet in it - Foundation Certificated / Experience in an ITIL environement / etc - it indicates that you will be working at a site that manages its overall production activity according to some or all of the ITIL framework.
Rather than indicating a skill set directly related to your position the Foundation Certificate will reassure an employer that you will fit into their context and understand the 'management culture' within which you will be working.
Foundation training is about understanding core concepts, process, and objectives - and some of the reasons for these. It is not 'practical / technical' training. That is higher up the training tree.
Some employers may missunderstand the FC as a certification of a skill set, but in most cases it's pretty much seen as a measure of understanding.
Where that fit's with your career aspirations is for you to dicide.
