There is a flexible working option, though the role will be primarily site based with frequent travel to clients premises e.g. commercial offices, retail premises, industrials parks etc. to undertake Fire Risk assessments.

  • Basic understanding on Active Fire Protection (AFP) and Passive Fire Protection (PFP) systems;
  • Basic understanding on Fire Safety Engineering principles and tools, such as fire modelling simulation (using zone models such as CFAST and CFD-based models such as FDS) etc.

Qualifications / Experience:

The successful candidate will have:

  • Carrying out site visits when needed for conducting Fire Risk Assessments
  • Development of Fire Risk Assessment reports
  • Assessment and understanding of the main British fire safety legislation and standards applied to buildings, such as Approved Document B (AD B), BS9999, BS7974;
  • Supporting on the development of Fire Safety Strategy reports for both, the building and rail sectors

This is an excellent opportunity for an accomplished Fire Risk professional to take on a new challenge and gain further experience within the profession. Your hard work and commitment will be rewarded with a very competitive salary and an attractive bonus and benefits scheme.
