Employment Type
Closing Date
Ref No

One day you may be investigating a fire, specifically to help a client understand how and why it spread.  The next, you may be assisting regulators interrogate evidence from a fire incident, so that lessons might be learnt - this can contribute to and influence future guidance to the Building Regulations.  On another day, you may undertake individual or collaborative research and report back and/or give evidence as an expert witness.   

If you think the above is for you, we should chat - particularly if you are currently or until recently were engaged in:

1)      Building Control Surveying or Construction Design Management.  You will have built up extensive experience in appraising design drawings and troubleshooting details on site to comply with the Building Regulations and understand team working. 

2)      Research programmes for a masters degree in Fire Safety Engineering.  We are particularly keen to speak with you if Fire Investigation is what interests you most and team working is a strong point.   

3)      Fire/forensic investigation work for the Police or Fire Services or for Loss Adjusters.  We want to hear from you if you are unrelenting in gathering detail and  work collaboratively. 

BRE is an equal opportunities employer.
