Providing Expert Fire Safety advice

As one of our fire safety advisors, you’ll soon discover that your ability to empathise with residents and to really listen to their needs, is as important as your technical H&S knowledge and fire safety experience. Working as part of the fire safety team you will ensure that we meet all legislative and regulatory standards and that our residents are safe in their homes. From the delivery of our new fire safety management policy, you’ll implement quality assurance processes and use performance data to evaluate and monitor improvement right across the Borough.

As an H&S expert you will work collaboratively with a range of stakeholders to ensure continuous improvement in all aspects of our fire safety programme.

Use your skills to develop a great service

It’s a challenging role and one that will call on your management experience, fire safety and risk assessment knowledge, and your ability to build excellent relationships with a range of stakeholders. An expert understanding of PAS 79, BS 9999 and Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 will be essential. You’ll be a team player working collaboratively to achieve our objectives. You’ll also have appropriate H&S and Fire safety qualifications and experience to support this position.
