We are currently recruiting for a motivated and self-disciplined individual to join a well-established and growing business providing a wide range of safety and compliance services UK wide within the public and private sector.

The Job

As a Fire Risk Assessor, you will visit active sites UK wide to conduct safety surveys and risk assessments for both fire and more general H&S requirements. With your time split between field based and home working, you will be responsible for a range of duties to include the following:

  • Undertaking fire risk assessments in accordance with nationally recognised guidance in an appropriate format, to an accepted standard and in a timely manner
  • Liaising with the fire safety administrator and head of fire risk management to deliver risk assessments in line with contractual requirements
  • Liaising with sub consultants
  • Attending client meetings when necessary
  • Undertake peer review/validation of others work
  • Provide technical advice to clients
  • Manage the expectation of assigned clients

The Candidate

You will enjoy a large amount of flexibility in the completion of your duties, and as such a strong sense of self-discipline and personal organisation is required. Being focused on delivering the highest quality work within demanding deadlines and in a safety critical function, you will be personally invested in a job well done and aware at all times of the extreme level of responsibility your duties carry.

You will either currently hold or have demonstrable experience of working towards:

  • NEBOSH General

Given the mobile nature of the role you must hold a full UK driving licence, have access to your own vehicle and be comfortable travelling regularly with work, with the expectation of staying away from home for approximately 1 week per month. Flexibility and the ability to work independently while maintaining focus in the delivery of your duties is key.

What's on offer

A generous basic salary is just the start. You will be given full training in company and industry specific procedures and quality standards, with a lot of investment in your first 3 months to give you the skills and knowledge required to be confident in the role.

The company is heavily engaged with staff, and in addition to regular social events a discretionary annual bonus based on company and personal performance is achievable. You will also have the ability to spend much of your time working from home with the flexibility to structure your own working hours, while ensuring you deliver to quality and deadline expectations.
