Providing Expert Fire Safety management

Define the strategy that shapes our service

As our policy officer in the new team, you’ll soon discover that your ability to empathise with residents and to really listen to their needs, is as important as your technical knowledge and housing experience. You’ll work closely with the members of the building safety team to develop strategic and operational policies and procedures for the delivery of fire and building safety across our housing portfolio. From shaping the work of our new service to helping define our response to the draft Building Safety Bill, you’ll make sure we have everything in place to ensure the safety of our residents.

Deliver innovation that inspires the industry

The work we need to do is far-reaching and varied. We have more than 80 high-rise blocks and a large number of low-rise buildings in the Borough. So, the portfolio offers unique challenges and opportunities. Within this setting, you’ll strive to develop effective and efficient policies with procedures that support the team and help shape the strategic direction of our work.

Drive change that protects lives

It’s a challenging role and one that will call on your housing management experience, property background and ability to build excellent relationships across a range of stakeholders. You’ll be a confident presenter, with impressive communication skills and an expert understanding of the regulatory environment.
